HID's,yes or no

I have a 2008 ZX14 and I wanna have HID's installed on my lo and hi beams but when I take it to dealers they all say no they won't do it and advise me its a bad idea due to electrical problems they have seen on their shops,I really like the look but not at the risk of messing up my electrical system,any advise for me and I was also looking at CCFL(DEMON EYES)

I don't think I have ever seen a ZX14 conversion to HID that looked like it worked without converting to HID-intended projectors.

love hids on cars, for some reason, im not a fan of them on bikes. i don't know why. something about them almost blending in too much with other night traffic. I know halogens can blend in also, but ....

maybe it's cause you need projectors, and while it's brighter, it's almost a more refined smaller light image thru the projector that sort of can ironically disappear in night traffic amongst other cars. (i know it isn't technically a smaller beam of light but you know what im saying)
