What is the difference betweem litronics headlights and HID conversion kit?

Wondering if its worth the money to change to litronics rather than converting my current headlights to HID conversion kits. Will the color spectrum be the same..meaning white blue and bright?

I'll take a swing at that pitch......

The HID kit changes the bulbs in the original housings, in some cases the added heat has melted the headlight housing. The litronics are a factory upgrade, true you don't get the self leveling ability like a factory option but otherwise the litronics are factory. They illuminate the road far better and get rid of that orange turn signal and orange triangle that IMO made the stock headlamp ugly.
