HID is the headlights themselves and the LEDs are the three lights on top and than there are like 2 in each halo. Those are 1st gens and you have to do alittle splicing of wires to get all the lights to work, LEDs that is.

1st gens are what you are looking at, the second gens have CCFL halos(kind i have) and a CCFL strip over the halos and than 3 LED lights in the corner after the strip. The 3rd gens have LED halo rings and 3 LEDs under the halos.

Yea, I have been debating on getting another set of CCFL's myself in chrome to change it up when I get bored but it is a pretty penny. Though alot cheaper for them than when I first got them, eventually they were decrease in price more. I am just waiting to see if there is another gen coming out soon.
