Hid/angel eyes, suggestions!

Hey guys, I'm starting to look into angel eyes/xenons and I wanted to get your guys opinion on the most cost effective/dependable quality solution here. I have a stock headlight assembly right now with just regular halogen bulbs I want to add both angel eyes and HID's. Suggestions please? Links are also appreciated .

I have a 2006 3.0i.

Whatever you do, please don't just do bulbs. You'll get a much better look, output, and light control with a complete projector kit.
