Default Non HID Headlight housing swap

Ok, I know this has been said before, but non HID headlights in a luxury car is ridiculous. Like an elevator in an out house, don't belong.

I realize that some people put HID Kits into the existing stock, halogen projector headlights but this is an issue for me because of the beam cutoff and this just wasn't designed for HID lights.

I was looking up costs for entire housing and found Subzero LED headlights by Xtralights.

Just wondering if anyone has heard anything on these and if LED would be a good upgrade.

Thanks

By the way this would be for a 2007 Lexus ES 350 that I am looking at.

Thanks.

Kinda curious too. I just had my driver's side headlight go out.

I have Kensun HID 55W 6000K and they work like a charm. In fogs I have Kensun 35W 6000K. No problems with them.

Did you have to modify the wiring for these to work? HIDs take more power if I'm not mistaken. What I liked about LEDs is that they should take less power than the stock halogens.

No. Just plug & play.

Cool. I decided to take the HID plunge and just ordered a Kensun kit.

The LED thing the OP posted looked interesting but its the complete housing so much more expensive.
