Default DIY LED Headlights 2016 CX5 Touring

Hi everyone, I'm looking to upgrade my stock headlights to LEDs and was wondering if anyone had any experience doing this / product recommendations. My CX5 came with the basic headlights (no technology package). I've been looking on Amazon and have found a few options that seem like what I want but just wanted to make sure the process was really as simple as it sounds (actually "plug n play or more involved?). Also how many bulbs am I replacing? I'm assuming 4 total one pair of hi beams & one pair of low beams. Correct sizes are 9005 & H11 right? So if anyone has any experience and product recommendations it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Do some more homework. This is anything but "plug-n-play". To work properly, led headlights have to be engineered into the electrical system. It's not a simple matter, no matter what the internet vendors tell you. Start here:
