True enough, problem is used OEM units aren't that cheap, or at least I haven't found the cheap ones. Most retrofits seem to go from halogens to xenon, or factory xenon to xenon with improved projectors. This vehicle has bi-xenon from the factory, and from what I have read, any retrofit is a downgrade from the components I already have. My current units are AL bi-xenon.
