Got them from Aliexpress myself and installed them today.
Thanks to the flexible heatsink, they fit ok with stock headlight cap.
There's room in the headlight for the box and wires just fine, you can tuck them around the projector dome.
The light output is not far greater than halogen, but they are the same colour as the DRLs so they give a good consistent look.

Digging up an old thread here to save creating a new one on the same topic.

I have fitted some LED H7's today from Autobeam (www.autobeam.co.uk) and am as expected, getting an intermittent Low beam/High beam failure.

So I have some resistors on order, the wiring of which I'm familiar with. But, in order to avoid having to cut a hole and have the wires coming through the rubber caps on the headlights, can anybody see any issues with splicing the cable a little further up the loom to wire the resistor in line? I have a multi meter so can easily identify the correct cable.

TIA :D
