I like the DDM Tuning kits at around 4500K. They have some of the best engineering of the bulbs to put the "fire" in the same place as the halogen that the reflector/ projector was designed for to get acceptable cut off. They are way brighter that halogens. These kits are also so inexpensive in the USA. A prime example of China's currency manipulation. $35 for all of that hardware? That is less than a good pair of halogens. And they will last 5 times as long.
The problem with LED headlight replacements is that in order to make enough light, the emmiter is way bigger than the filiment the housing was designed for. Which usually causes the pattern to spray. And most LED bulbs have a huge heatsink or fan which won't even allow the access cover to be reinstalled so you are stuck with the chance of getting water in the housing.
