I'm a newb to all of this so please bear with me. I am thinking of upgrading my current stock halogen headlights to angel eyes and hid's, I was looking at jlevi's site and came across the projector 46's. Now my question is why would someone pay 600+ dollars on the p46's when they could get the predator chromium's for $99 and the Hid's for $260? Besides the headlight assembly is there something else that I am missing because money wise it makes no sense.

you're missing the projector aspect of it. HID kit is just the ballast,wires, bulb. The $99 pred chrom is the older version..correct me if im wrong. The newer and better version is the $199 one.
Unless you have projector headlights already you can pay for angel eyes and HID separately like you mentioned and install it. P46 comes with everything installed and is plug and play.
