What LED headlight bulbs are good for a R53.

I’ve seen a Morimoto H7 LED kit for about $120. I’m wondering if anybody has done an LED headlight bulb upgrade and which bulbs have you chosen. Thank you

I just installed the deAutoLED H7s and H11s (I have Xenon low-beams already) as high beam and fog respectively. The install was pretty painless (IMO important to wrap the connectors from ballast to bulb to keep water out), and the light output / pattern is a great improvement.

I spent a bunch of time reading the Bulbfacts folks' reviews. They seem to like the Morimoto units as well: http://bulbfacts.com/led-kits/chart/

Do the LEDs work without issue? I tried to use LEDs in my interior and the flashed - even when the dome was turned off.

I have changed my interior lights with LED’s and had no issues with them flashing. I believed I used the brand Ziza

Used Ziza on both my MINIs. No flashes or bulb out errors to worry about, also on main kits there are install pdfs.
