Can HID’s destroy your car’s wiring?

For the life of me I don't know why Mercedes still has halogen standard. I bought a used 2015 C300 and the only option were LED lights or halogen + rear view camera so I picked the latter thinking I can easily swap out the halogen bulbs with more pure white LED bulbs (I would hire a professional of course)

I've heard a lot of horror stories about HID/LED bulbs destroying the car's wiring and I wanted to know how true that was and if it's preventable. Supposedly I read that overtime since HID's will draw energy to start up it would make the wiring harness age prematurely and burn out which some said would cost hundreds if not thousands for a Mercedes.
