And $700 is a bargain for a set. There is just not enough value in HID angel eyes to risk that kind of damage.

I know that the upgrade to the 2013 LED headlights has been discussed here, but with the control modules we are talking $6k+ which seems over the top.

Since the 2013 non-LED headlights also feature the F10 style AE's I wonder if that isn't the way to go. Not sure how to check into that, but perhaps there is a barebone headlight housing available...
