May give those a go before delving into the HID area.

HID lights should only be used in a projector lens like the ones I have fitted, as there is a Shutter which blocks the light beam from reflecting upwards towards the oncoming drivers, and produces an extremely straight cut off line.

if you fit a HID kit to a standard reflector lens the beam will shine everywhere and blind everyone

The focus Bi Xenon headlights use Osram D1S Bulbs which are very good and definatly rate the brand. havent tried any halogen bulbs though

Little off topic but... Iv gone all out.

Purchased Osram Nightbreakers 90+ H1 H7, And LED Sidelights, I just wasn't 100% happy with the MTEC Cosmos.

As for HID Kit, places around me are terrible, trying to palm the kits off not actually caring if customers have standard reflector lens or not.

Ordered a full set of Osram Nightbreaker Plus today off eBay, £25 for 2 x H7 (dipped beam) and 2 x H4 (main beam). Going to leave the sidelights standard for now.

Personally I trumped for the cool blue intense, pretty much as bright as the nightbreaker and whiter too. Or a good combination would be cool blue intense for the low beam and nightbreaker plus for the high beam.

That sounds pretty cool.

Stoney did you do a video of a drive with them showing the light throw mate?
