Change in what?
The light out of the HID lamps is AWESOME. We have 5300K and I would say the 5000K lights sold here would be even better - for brightness and light quality.
The one thing you don't realize until you drive a car with HID headlamps, is that how much more you can truly see in the dark with the same light output. She wanted "those cool blue-looking headlights" - I wanted HID for the extra clarity they provide at night. I used to race 24 hour MTB races and my nighttime performance went up when I went to a HID bicycle light. You truly see more with less strain.
IMHO, HID low beams and HIR highbeams are a necessity. (I still need to do the HIRs in our Saab)
