I see the exact same with these LEDs and halogens except the contrast.
The yellow light is easier to see when there is ambient light around from streetlights, but in as dark of locations I could find the illumination was the same.
Just being able to see the light turn objects yellow did not mean the halogen was brighter.
The real world use of these LEDs shows they work just fine as headlights in the CT. The distance was the same as objects down the street were just as visible with the halogens or the LEDs. The real world illumination you get for safety was the same between the halogen and LED.
The pictures show this.
The reason they work great in the CT could be the projector magnifying lense and housing. Other cars with different kind of reflectors or projectors will probably project the light differently.
Basically every car you use these on need to be tested, but I know they work the same as halogens on the CT.
Working on the CT does not mean they will work on other cars with different kinds of housings.
