Any H11 LED head light bulb will fit. Just make sure it comes with the load balancing harness or the LED will trip a fault in the computer software system.

The problem with LED's in halogen jeweled reflectors is that they are brighter than halogens and might cause extra flaring and glare for on coming traffic.

The Ebay link does not provide a beam view against a wall showing how bright in what pattern it gives. Also doing this conversion is not DOT compliant.

I have personal experience with the Opt 7 LED bulbs.
What I like about them is the fact they are CanBUS-Ready and will work with any vehicle's computer system without error.
I'm waiting for a nice day and some time to do my conversion.

I was looking into LED headlights as well to replace the stock halogen headlights.

When i looked at the cost of decent ones, I just went to hids. Could buy 3 sets of hids for the same price as 1 led kit.

For those who don't care about price, I would love to see how the LED headlights turn out!!

Taken from their website:
"Our emitter arrays conform to the H11 halogen filament's position and orientation for maximum compatibility with the optics in a H11 halogen headlamp....you get 3673 lux (effective lumens)
They use Philips LumiLEDS LXZ2-5770 emitters for a natural-white 5700K color temperature.

Seeing those specs they look like they could work well. But they are pricey for the cause.

IMO spending a bit extra here goes a long way since often its a product that will last you a long time. I have know people running the same kit for 5+ years, no issues. All they had to do was maintain the headlight lens to ensure flawless light output.
