Question LED Headlight Bulbs. Where?

I installed LED fog lights on my car yesterday. Looks great and works great however... Fog lights are LED and headlights are not I have looked around some on the web but wanted some advice as well as experience with a company to get a set of LED "plug and play" headlight bulbs. I got the fog light kit from Phastek Performance but I can not seem to locate just headlight bulbs on their site. Can you guys point me in the right direction so I can get a set??

Well thanks for all the help and responses (none). I figured it all out and will have the HID kit in 2 days.

What did you figure out? LED bulbs don't exist for headlights? They don't meet safety standards? They aren't bright enough?

Also the heat from the light helps in the winter go get rid of the snow/ice.

I found out just what you said. They do not make LED bulbs for head lights because they are not bright enough. So for the fix you have to get a HID kit so that is what I bought. I was reaching out for information and advice on here but I didn't get it but its all good.

Well that's good in case someone searches on LED headlights.

I was researching getting an LED light bulb for a movie projector. I came across the issue also that they weren't bright enough. Maybe in the future but for now, no.

I appreciate you responding. I tried to check out your link but it would not load for me. I am not sure why but I will try again later. I really did not know that LED's could not be used as head lights so I for sure learned something new. I think I am in right direction now with this HID kit I ordered. Thanks again for responding.
