For headlights, any 7" globe will fit. The problem with LED headlights is aiming. Be sure to re-aim your lights after installation. And beware lighting performance will drop off when loading the car or carrying rear-seat passengers. New cars have self-leveling systems to mitigate that but they still are not aimed very well

LED headlights are even overtaking HID arc-lamp headlights
* AUDI Matrix LED headlights
* Mercedes Multibeam LED headlights
* BMW Adaptive LED headlights



Here's the GE 69821 Nighthawk 7" globe LED (for Right side driving like USA & Canada)

GE NHLED7ROUND NightHawk LED High Beam and Low Beam $128/each at RockAuto.com
Quote:
GE NIGHTHAWK™ LED headlights offer real advantages over other technologies. They won't burn out, require no maintenance beyond normal lens cleaning, and produce light with a color temperature that is close to daylight. Features & Benefits:
• Lasting Efficiency - Delivers longer life and draws less amperage than standard halogen headlamps headlights.
• Superior Durability - Utilizes a rugged lamp housing to withstand impact and solid-state circuitry design for vibration resistance; epoxy-sealed electronics avoid moisture and corrosion.
• Improved Visibility - Resists wear and distributes light evenly using a non-yellowing, polycarbonate lens.
• Simple Installation - Uses standard, H4 wiring connection and works with both 12V and 24V systems – simply plug them in and go.
• Visual Appeal - Produces a unique split-lamp low beam and high beam appearance.

so true, but at least they are designed for real use

see the 2019 shootout for how bad LED headlights can be, and how good

I bought sets of these for three of my vehicles.

The Unibody and both coupes.

POST EDIT:

After watching that video I think I will be changing my lights to another brand. There were some really good items displayed. The ones I have seem adequate, I have been using them for over 6 months now. Never really noticed an issue with my beam saturation or "hot spot"
