The problem remains that the LEDs are generally bigger than the filament or discharge chamber of a halogen or HID lamp. As reflectors are bigger, the dispersion is less prominent, but it is there.
My fog lights have reflectors, but the dispersion is distinctly different from what it was with the halogens, even though the center of the LEDs is where the filament would be.

I'm tempted to buy another set of LED lamps that have big solid cooling fins and tiny LEDs. €15 now... Never seen them that cheap. Problem is I really don't need them
