Xenon worth it?

Hello, first time poster here.

Just ordered a 2013 382i xDrive with standard headllamps, but have a couple of days to change that and add the lighting package, if I wish. So would appreciate opinions as to the value of the xenon active headlamps in the lighting package.

Have only had one car with xenon active headlamps, in fact, it's the Lexus we traded in. Good head lights and the lights turning into the curves was entertaining, but can't say there was a particularly noticeable benefit over the standard headlamps on my '09 VW Jetta TDI. But that, of course, is a bit of an apples and oranges comparison.

So, in the current 3 series how much of an improvement do the xenon active headlamps offer? How would you rate the standard headlamps?

Thank in advance for the feedback.
