About to buy the below LEDs to upgrade my lights.

Am I setting myself up for future issues?
Has anybody done the same?
Any advice from Pros like you are MUCH appreciated!

Your thread title says LED head, but you liked to a Xenon (not LED) headlight?

It's confusing - but he's really talking about the Michiba LED kit. The others are just there for comparison.

Apologies for the confusion.

I didn't realise the links I provided were NOT Leds. Their website is a little confusing haha

the website is as clear as mud.

does that include the ballast, cooling, etc that is often needed when switching to led? or is that just a bare bulb? I'm not sure what you need for your desired conversion.

note that further down on one of those links it has a led headlight for the fly that's $70 unlike $10 in the link. I'm suspect

Osram started to sell street legal (in EU only so far) LED conversion kits from halogens. https://www.osram.com/ecat/LED%20lamps%20(street-legal)-Car%20lighting-Automotive/com/en/GPS01_3574187/
Quite expensive, only sold in pairs, and legal only for approved cars in EU only. But the list of cars is getting bigger and you are buying the top class product. I suppose if it was approved for usage in several head lamps designed for halogen bulb so far only, it may be accepted in case of some accident. I suppose Osram conversion LED kit should be accepted by authorities in case of accident rather than LED kit from unauthorized manufacturer.
I have LED kit on my Vespa from Aliexpress (H4 Osram conversion kit is a hot new, so it was not available year ago) and I had to install the interference suppressor device, same as is being used on car FM tuners, since the LED bulb was jamming the Immobilizer signal.
Installing some cheap HID kit may also jam the Immo signal from the high frequency ballast.
