I got an HID kit off Ebay last year for my 05, paid around $25 (cheap), just did the low beam with the 4700k (it was too blue) bulb and it worked OK I suppose, the light pattern was very blotchy and un-uniform I had to lower the aim a fair amount to keep the light from blinding oncoming traffics, not impressive.
After about 3 months it died (not sure if it was the bulb or ballast, still have both) on a trip, I switched the high-beam H7 into the low-beam socket to get me to a town where I could buy another H7, and removed the HID, haven't missed it.
