Extremely Cheap LCI Halogen Angel Eye LEDs?

So some people consider upgrading the LCI halogen angel eyes with a bigger, higher wattage bulb such as this one:
http://www.consumabulbs.com/files/bdet.php?id=72

So, with that, I can tell that the LCI Halogens use a "BA9S" type bulb. What if.. I bought an LED "BA9S" replacement bulb such as this one?

I can assume I'll get bulb errors since I'm already dealing with them for my license plate lights, but if I can code out the bulb checks myself, shouldn't these bulbs work?

that will not work since the bulb is fixed into the stock reflector. As well that "LED" bulb will be be 2-3 times dimmer then the stock bulbs in all honesty. www.superbrightleds.com really should call themselves SuperDimLEDs since most of their products are not good

The 20W BA9S is not good since it will burn your bulb housing or reflector. Use 10W BA9s, same as the original.
Yes it is possible to remove the old bulb from the housing (with some difficulty) and mount a new 10W BA9s.
The LED BA9S that you have linked is a poor performer.
