I have these H7 leds as my low beams, they are great, but they are too 'tall' to fit in the high beam socket. They will foul the rear headlight access cover.

I have looked for other H7 with less depth, to use has high beams but haven't been successful yet. My vehicle is not coded to run DRL's. Make sure if you are replacing the halogens with LEDS, get a metal base. The plastic base leds are too thick and won't clip into the crap factory headlight sockets. The Stedi's I am using come standard with a plastic base, a metallic one is available and just bayonets on in place of the plastic. I coded the bulb test off with PA-Soft so the leds don't flicker. Also be mindful that cheap (junk) leds will not replicate a normal bulb in a reflective housing and will spray light in all (undesired) directions. My first trial set lit up road signs hundreds of metres up the highway! On-coming drivers would shield their eyes as they fumbled for the stalk to flash me in return.
