Anyone updated non HID H7 headlight bulbs to LED?

I would like to update my 2004 X3 Halogen Headlights to a cool white LED. Has anyone done this? Wondering if the LED H7 bulb shown here would do the job. Want a newer LED without fans, ballasts, or braided heat sinks like the one shown here from eBay.

I changed my halogen low beams for H7 leds, but they flickered a little and lit the 'lamp blown' yellow dash warning light. They are not street legal here, so I didn't want flickering leds attracting attention. I will probably order some canbus load resistor modules and re-visit the change soon. No doubt the standard halogens are not the best.

I got a set of bulbs from Japan on a recent trip that are supposed to be equivalent. Haven't fit them yet (probably this weekend), but the same bulb in H1 made a world of difference on my e30.

Pics of new bulbs, 4000k and made a nice difference. No before photos, but I'm happy with the look
