Lightbulb LED Headlights with AFS Compatibility

With my last car, I became a big fan of LED headlights.

My 07 RX350 has the AFS system and I haven't been able to find any concrete evidence that there are LED bulbs compatible with this system.

Any experience in here trying to swap bulbs for LED's?

If I could, I'd replace all front end bulbs with LED...any info that's been dug up would be helpful.

why get LEDs? The xenon bulbs work great and the projectors are one of the best in the industry. even still.

I take it then that nobody has done the switch or looked into it?

I like LED headlights a lot.

what current headlights do you have? The halogen ones? Like I said earlier, the HID stock headlights on the rx are excellent and better than most LEDs on the market, including my stock is led headlights. That's probably the reason why many aren't responding to you... Just my 2 cents

It's probably easier to replace your HID bulbs than putting in a new set of LEDs...

There are a few things I dislike about HID headlights:

High power draw
Ballast's that fry and are very expensive to replace

And things I like about LED headlights:

My last pair was so bright, I could see through time itself.
Low power draw
Long life (50k+ hrs for my old ones, probably even better for newer ones)

These are some of the reasons I posed the question, but it seems like a pretty unpopular idea that hasn't gotten too much consideration.
