Which Headlight is better?

I'm in the market for new headlights for my 08 G6 GT. I'm thinking Halo's or the L.E.D. eye slits that the audi uses or HID's Can anyone suggest and tell me the pro's and con's of them all? I would love you forever :) Thanks!

those ones on ebay arent made for HID's only halogens. the spyders however can be used with HIDS. IMO the halo/LED is getting too played out and it seems like everyone has them. HIDS are illegal in the stockers like you said, but also in most places any HIDS that are not factory installed are also illegal. Personally if you dont care about light output either of those will be fine. If you want HIDs and halos go with the spyders. Otherwise i would just keep your stockers.
Hmmmm so all types are illegal? I was wondering why so stores can sell them. Im thinking these http://www.carid.com/2008-pontiac-g6-headlights/halo-projector-82162.html could I put HID's in them also? Thanks for the feedback guys!
Yes all types that are not factory installed are illegal. but as mentioned above, it has never been heard of someone getting ticketed for having them. And yes, those can be used with HIDs, but the light output is terrible.
The output is bad because they arent good quality projectors. Good quality projectors go for around $200 for a set of 2. That's just the projector housing, not the whole headlight assembly. And to get the hid bulb in the spyders you have to file the housing abit to get the thing to fit in.
he'll need to decide whether or not he wants HIDs. In that thread on G6P they say that those ones arent made for HIDs

Btw the ones on G6P are the ones on the first page of this thread
Those ones aren't technically made for hids so no one knows yet whether or not they will fit. When you get them installed especially if you get the hids installed as well, post up a picture of the beam pattern so we can see how they look
Those are the spyder headlights, they are able to work with HIDs the ones i was referring to were the ones that were posted on the first page
hazy in what way? as theres moisture in them, or as the lens is becoming translucent and hard to see through?
