Noob AE question

Trying to get rid of the obnoxious yellow color of my AE headlights. However having a headache trying to figure out what bulbs to buy. Pretty much will these fit?

Very confused as to weather or not I can use LED bulbs. Also I know they aren't the best this is a temporary fix until I can afford something better.

Thanks

Get mtec or lux. Don't waste money and time on cheaper ones. It will end up costing much more if the POS bulbs burn up the AE fiber optics.

It does look like those will fit, but definitely hold out for Mtec or Lux.

Just because it fits in the hole doesn't mean it belongs there.

Hard lesson.

Are these the LED's from Mtec I should be looking at?

Guess I'll just wait till next month to get bulbs. Don't want to have to change bulbs more than once and if these are worth the wait I'll wait. What's with the design flaw in changing bulbs on these things
