HID isn't really a great option for high beams, unless you are running bixenon. HID take a little time to come to full brightness, so you effectively lose flash-to-pass, and by the time you get to full bright, a car is coming and time to turn them down.
I was using a set of Philips Luxeon 9000 lumen led highs in my Malibu and those were crazy bright. They do spray light everywhere and can be a bit too bright right in front of the car, effectively reducing your long distance usefulness, but at least since they are the highs, you shouldn't be blinding oncoming traffic. If oncoming cars see your highs that much, you deserved a ticket anyways.
