Question Are HID Projectors brighter?

Ok, so I know that this has been discussed before, but I couldn't dig up any posts specifically answering this question:

I know that most aftermarket projector headlights for Intrepids use H- bulbs for headlights instead of the stock 9006XS lights.

At first I didn't like the idea because I thought that because the bulbs were smaller, they wouldn't produce as much light and that projectors were just for styling.

However, I need a bottom line answer: are Projector Headlights with HID H-bulbs brighter than stock headlights with 9006XS bulbs? I saw some projectors with an HID conversion kit for $188 on eBay, and if they will improve lighting, I will get them.

Thanks for all the help, guys!

Yes, brighter, longer lasting and more efficient, cooler running to.
I bought my last set at DDM Tunning for $35 and I love them!!!

They are brighter than say an OEM light with stock bulbs, yeah. But if you put HID's in your stock housing the stock housing would be better IMO.
