|Those ebay projectors have a ty rep for lousy beam definition. And yes, you can put LEDs in, but if they are not in a projector, again, ty beam definition. Unless the source is in the the exact same spot as where halogen bulb would put it, you will have a ty beam, dispersed down low, maybe up in the face of oncoming traffic. To be able to see farther, to see better, you need to control where the light goes that you generate. Halogens do this by the shape of the reflector, which is penitently dependent on the source being in the right spot. Proper HID and LED retrofits do this with projectors. Anthony did a set for his truck, I have HIDs in my main headlights and in the fogs with projectors, as my '07 was way under my standards for projected light when I bought it. One trap to avoid in HIDs is don't get too high of a color temp. 4300K is actually the best for light that the human eye can see, but most people tend to go higher for whiter light.
If you don't like halos, don't put them in. It's that easy as they are not required. Personally I put halos that are switchbacks, and an LED signal bulb. All flash yellow on that side as the turn indicator. Like Mike, I don't give the furry crack of a rats ass what someone thinks about me. I have some picture I can post them if you want. Oh yeah, even a Ring video that shows how much they project!
