LED conversion headlights help

So I recently bought the 2017 1.5TDCi Titanium and am very happy with it overall. One thing I'm not so happy with is the lack of brightness in the headlights, rather dull halogens are a bit disappointing. Has anyone on here replaced the dipped beams and full beams halogens with LED lights? If so how easy was it and is there a reputable company selling compatible ones for my particular model. TIA

Not sure you could fit LED lisgts, but some have upgraded to Xenon. See -

Probably this would be your best bet ?

I must admit, the B Max headlights are about the worst I can ever remember on a car. I have got used to them and can't be bothered to change them. If one fails, I might get a pair of Xenons though.

LED should be ok, but don't try to retrofit HID gas discharge lights in standard headlight units. they /will/ fail the MOT
theoretically also if you have over 2000 lumen lights they should have headlight cleaning/ self leveling systems.

Thank you for the replies, I have bought the Xenon cheap bulbs for the time being, but will look at upgrading to some nice LED lights with a ballast later on 👍🏽
