I put these in an SP36 and liked them a lot, the FC35 I'm working on has them as well. Great upgrade. $72 for four and I have a 10% off coupon being offered to me, you may see this as well. You can barely buy incandescent replacements for this!

OK. No worries. I prefer the Hella conversion housing with replaceable bulbs. Your money your choice!!

I love my Hella halogen conversions (mine are round, thought). Not cheap, but the best lenses in the business and are made from glass. I haven't tried an H4 LED replacement bulb in them because I can't find one that would fit in the housing without cutting it out. They are the best headlights I've ever had on any vehicle.

Just an FYI: I used these in my 7 inch round and my 5x7 rectangular Hella Conversion housings. I have been pleased with the light output and the beam pattern in both sets of housings. They plugged right in with no mods to the light or the housing. I did cut and modify the rubber seal on the back of the housing for the heatsink. I also had to readjust the headlights.

Your money, your choice.

They won't fit, there's no clearance behind them in the housings on mine... There's juuuust barely enough room for a 90 degree connector on the terminals of the H4. If I do go this route I'll just have to cut the housings, which isn't the end of the world. But they are so bright, and warm in the winter

Ah, OK. Wow that is pretty tight. I didn't think I would have room in my 1999 Jeep Cherokee but they did fit, barely.
