Halogen projector headlights are junk no matter what kind of bulb you put in them.

I have some LED's in my wife's halogen projectors (H11 low beams only).

I think halogen bulbs have better overall output than the LED's (and even HID's).
With LED's, the foreground light is brighter than halogen (more forground light is not a good thing) and OK light in mid distance, but low beam distance is worse than with halogen.

in the opposite direction. Those are for signal or reverse lights. They won't put out any usable light.

Plus that's the wrong bulb type. You need 9007 for headlights.
