I agree with a previous poster in that after having HID headlamps I am not interested in halogens... ever. I am pretty disappointed that you can't get HIDs even in the titanium trim. I'm holding out for the ST anyway, so hopefully that model will get some HID love.

HID headlamp leveling, while nice and less time consuming than DIY leveling, most Americans go to the dealer for changing a freakin' light bulb, so no need to provide controls for leveling their own headlamps.
This is not true. Cars that have HID headlamps are required by law to have a leveling system. In Europe they are required to be auto-leveling. The point is that you can blind oncoming cars if you have a load of gear in your trunk/hatch because of the difference in projector angle. It's not a substitute for headlight alignment. Personally, I think the Europeans got it right on this one. Very few people understand why manual leveling systems exist and so they do not use them for their intended purpose.
