The All New 2013 LIQUID COOLED R1200GS threadfest

Had them as well, didn't like them to be honest. I could not see a big output change. 35W 4300K HID is way better, at least during the day for passive safety.

Do it, the 1200GS is a real BMW with a real unique engine. I had the F800GS before, there is no comparison, however, if you're riding off-road a lot I'd keep the F800GS.
