I ordered an '11 that came in accidentally came in HIDless and the dealer would rather give me a better deal on a '12 than to retrofit the '11.
When you consider the HID package comes with the alarm it doesn't seem nearly as bad price-wise, at least it didn't to me. Plus I'd think it would be far less trouble all around. I can see not going this route however if you like the way the non-HID car looks better as many do.
I was quoted the same price as CandyRed, $2000, for the parts alone to do the retrofit up to factory specs. And that doesn't even include the labor. YIKES.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.
