Well... High Intensity Discharge Bulbs put out 3x the lumens, use half the power, emit half the heat, and last up to 5 times longer than halogen filaments. They also LOOK infinitely better.
Umnitza also offers DEPO headlights for those of you who are not in the mood to buy top-of-the-line ZKWs. Umnitza offers a ton of great packages with even better service. Demon eyes, HIDs of your color choice, StonGaurd, you name it, they've got it. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, he specializes in 3 series (E36 and E46) lighting.
I purchased my HID from proxenon.com. I had a terrible customer service orderal with them and they don't come reccomended. If you don't have the money to go for an OE phillips or osram setup, the bohmen setup is the best. ISO and TUV certified, 5000K runs about $375-400 (last i checked prices, may have gone down) depending on where you shop.
But it is definity worth it, and will make you ashamed even of the silverstars the improvement is so great.
