I don't know that they are the "best" as I did not plug other brands in to see how the compare.
I got VLEDS "Micro Evolution" LED bulbs for the low beam headlight.
They are pretty much IDENTICAL in beam pattern to the original halogen bulb, as it shows up on my garage door.
I got the 5000K color temp version.
They did not have their brighter "Micro Extreme" out yet when I bought mine.
I bought them directly from the VLEDS website.

It was a nice direct plug & play installation.
They are MUCH MUCH better than the stock halogen bulbs that were in there, but don't blind other drivers.

Again, these are not the brightest....but as mentioned, the beam pattern is super important.....brighter is not necessarily better.

I think that I read about VLEDS on this site.......

I also got the front turn signal "switchback" version in the "V6 Triton" 5000K color temp.
I ordered the "hyperflash" resistor kit for each side as well.
I have yet to install the turn signal lights....so I cannot comment on them yet.

I agree on this.

HID>LED.

LEDS might be brighter but they dissipate lot sooner than HIDs. It's nice to have the brightness of the sun at short distances but at long distance, not so much.

Don't get me, I thoroughly enjoy my OEM LED headlights but I do wish they were HID only because the distance does not even reach near as far as HIDs do.

I had an 2003 Infiniti FX35 with factory HIDs and I still remember how far those lights reach. My camry's LED does not even compare.

Regarding the LED bulbs though, have you checked with Xenon Depot offerings?
