I've got the AliExpress ones front and back. Rear lights are great but some trouble with the front ones. Took a while to figure out as there are no instructions but they are working well now. Super bright and the ring is really nice too.

In all honesty I have no idea... I have never opened them up to check. I'll maybe have a go at that soon and get back to you.

That would be great! If you can, make some photos pls. So your headlights came already with the bulbs inside?

You can install LED bulbs into the original headlights.

Problem solved. Just minor issue with one wire. Must say its pretty bright (6500K bulbs) in comparison with old halogen headlights. And beam is much sharper too. You can see where exactly ends. Really day and night difference. On the last three photos you can see comparison between low beam/high beam/LED light bar.

The last ones here looked good Stoveltramp.
The problem with most of these is that Here in Norway you will fail the MOT if there is no asymmetrical low beam and of course E-marked lenses. Also I have heard if the car is originally delivered with one type of lights you cannot change them, but that might come from the Xenon conversion kits that is not allowed when the car has no auto-level adjustment. I have tried a few LED bulbs but they miss the sweet spot in the headlight so the low beam and high beam does not point in the best direction. The LED center is not in the focal point of the headlights geometry.

Really want to change my headlights due to small cracks from winter temperatures in the plastic lens. they still pass cause I have polished them good before the MOT.
I agree with Kirkynut. Nightbreakers from Osram is a very good investment cost/effect wise..
