My opinion is you need to make a thread title that means something.

Are you talking about the entire headlamp? Going to 06+ headlamps? Or are you talking about installing a proper bixenon projector inside your 03 headlamps?

The pros of the 06+ headlamps are brighter light output, HID highbeams instead of halogens, and most agree they look better.

The cons are they are expensive, and technically not the original headlamps for your 03 Z.

Stock 03 HIDs are projector headlights.

That's debatable. It's more of a hybrid because there is reflector surface on the sides that is used for maybe 25% of the total light output.

Regardless, OP, you need to be more specific here.
