I don't give a crap about color. I want bright. So if I can do the hid with out a retrofit and not blind everyone or kill my projectors then sweet. If not then I'll wait to do a retrofit
You don't have to and people have said they've done to swap to HID's without a retrofit and do not get flashed by oncoming traffic. But, it's highly recommenced that you do a retrofit. Not only will the light not have any flood (light that could blind other drivers) it'll be concentrated in the areas it's needed most, making for a more functional headlight/HID assembly. And, of course it'll be brighter. Color aside, all HID's are about 3 times brighter than a standard halogen bulb.
