Got a link to the LEDs you used? Been looking for something drop-in for beatercam. For my V6 I used the Philips 9003/HB4 LED since it's a '99 and has the dual-filament bulbs; they work great. Haven't found something in 9005/9006
fox, I might try those out...adjustable bases sounds great and the price is right. Been running Philips and Hella, whichever ships from the same warehouse on RockAuto at the time (personally like the Hellas better).LEDs are a tricky thing what works in one housing perfectly could be horrible in another. For your application I don't know what is a good match but you usually want an LED bulb that places the emitters in the exact location of the original halogen filament especially for your housing type/design. Almost none do this. This is what I have in my gen2s.
Says no longer available too bad they work great in my housing but they do not have the fluted pattern in the bowl (like yours) instead in the glass lens. I tried several different types before I found this one is gives a near perfect beam pattern. I got lucky.

This is probably the best LED bulb out there, yea expensive but you won't need to buy bulbs again. For your Gen4 best bet is a projector retrofit then you have many options of LED or HID, HID with DRL rings, strips etc. I can't do that on my gen2 because the glass lens is glued permanently to the housing it can't be removed without destroying everything. I tried. On the plus side glass never yellows and I have plastic covers (aftermarket option at the time) so no worries of rock chips or breakage.
