If your car doesn’t have projector lens and just a normal halogen reflectors , do every road user a favour and stick to normal halogen bulbs.

Agreed. It's so glaring when they are driving behind us at night. It's like high beam when it's not.

I maybe wrong..

there is a diffuser lens in front of the bulb...

This is to prevent the glare onto the car in front...

my car has a beam leveler....can adjust the height of the beam

Get proper bulbs which are slim and have small led chips. Go research properly before buying.

Those follow stock beam pattern quite accurately.

This. Not to mention you might fail inspection as well...

Actually very easy , just look at your headlight from the front , if you see a “lens” that looks like a convex magnifying glass covering the bulb, then that is projector lens. If you look at the headlight and can straight away see the bulb, then those are normal halogen reflectors.
Projector lens focus the beam to appropriate level that won’t blind the other road users eyes.
Reflectors just disperse the light in all directions, not so much a problem when using stock halogen bulbs coz the Color temp is warm . This is why when you enter into a tunnel the first lights are always warm Color, also why street lamps are mostly warm. (But this is changing)

Be prepared to change every 6 months. These bulbs do not last. I’ve used HIDs LEDs with and without ballast both in headlamps and fog lamps. 4 bulbs take turns to spoil. But that’s last time technology. Not sure about now.
