led head lights

Has anyone bought the new OLM h11 45s. They are really appealing to me and was hoping someone has a review.

is there a benefit of LED's over a proper HID setup? I feel like it's just all gimmicky.

Not at this time (at least for retrofitting). Drop in LED bulbs have crap output aren't safe for a headlight. A whole projector designed from the ground up for the LED is another story, but they're still not as good as HID IMHO.

They're coming along, but not there yet.
