So I ordered these:

2 Pcs White H7 CREE Q5 5 SMD LED Car FogLight Lamp Bulb 11W 12 24V | eBay

cuz I hate the halogen highbeams/DRL bulbs. These H7 LED Cree 5 SMD with a metal base installed very easily and no bumper removal required since there is more than enough room to fit your hand behind the headlight. The colour match of th bulbs to the LED inside the headlight is very close, if not exact (see pics). I did not need any cancellers or relays. Just straight plug and play

The downside to these LED is the output. When the highbeam is actually used, its not that bright. This was not a concern for me since I was looking for style over performance. Keep in mind also that these lights will only really benefit guys with DRL's

I'm running these same bulbs in my highbeams, for the same reason. They look good, and since I drive mostly in/around cities, my highbeams are used almost exclusively for signaling. They do not improve visibility for me. If I were going to drive down a country road, someplace rural, I'd certainly swap back to the stock H7 bulbs.

^^ if it was a dark road, the low beams will be turned on silly :cool2:
I don't know if you've noticed or not, but our low beams don't have really good distance projection. (you see what I did there?? Did ya?)

Yea I noticed that, and I readjusted the height to project a bit higher.

I only got the LED H7 cuz I can't disable the DRL and because it is always on and I like using my LED in the headlight, I had to match it.
