I am in the exact same position as you, with an 05 with halogen projectors.
Don't waste your money on an HID kit.
I've put in a PnP H11 kit, and the light output is worse than stock. Most of the light gets cut off by the cut-off shield so its not nearly as bright as the halogen. I even drove around for weeks with one HID and one halogen, and all you could see is the halogen bulb reflecting off the road and other vehicles. It gets even worse when raining or snowing.
I think Megafast swapped in HID projector headlights on his ES300. Its going to be an expensive upgrade.
