ZKW Bi-Xenon HID to LED

I'm currently running a pair of lightwerkz modded ZKW bi-xenon projectors and I've about had it with the crappy OEM HID hardware. I've been through more igniters and ballasts since I've had the car, mind you the hardware replacements have all been used because $300+ for 15 year old tech is asinine.


The projectors are amazing and I certainly don't plan on getting rid of them. I figured an LED conversion is simple enough as there are plenty of D2S bulbs on the market these days. My concerns lie in heatsink/fan clearance and the rear boot.

Has anyone made the switch to LED hardware? I have also noticed that fanless designs have made an appearance on the scene. One guy on YouTube sliced a slit in the back of the boot through which he fed the fins. I see this as a plausible solution. Has anyone had experience with the finless bulbs?
