Default Headlight Swap Question

Hi, I'm looking at replacing my factory halogen headlights on my 2012 with a aftermarket '13-'14 projector style with the LED surround (see example pic). If anyone could offer advice on a decent brand name you suggest that would be great. I'm thinking of using LED bulbs for the projectors as well and again, what is a good reputable brand I should look for on the LED's?

Any and all advice you can give with this mod is much appreciated. Thanks!

you're looking at china aftermarket lights, there is no real reputable brand and they likely all come from teh same factory anywhere

LEDs in halogen projectors are a no no...not only will it bleed over and possible blind oncoming traffic, but output generally sucks. Not only that but there really is no reputable LED manufacturer really. Sellers on here will pretend like they have a reputable brand LED bulb, but theyre virtually all just rebranded generic chinese bulbs.

if you want better output, those headlights are extremely easy to retrofit, could just drop some evoxr projectors and a good HID bulb in there and have amazing output.
