Getting tired of dropping the front bumper every 8-12 months when it burns out on the left @ $15-20/bulb cost + the time spent. Also: is there's a benefit to hanging parts outside the dust cap? Did you drill the original cap (what tools were needed)? If replaced the original, what did you use instead (please link if possible)? I know there're extensions, like these: https://hidkitpros.com/shop/rubber-hous ... xtensions/ , even so it maybe too tight to fit one behind the driver's side light. Thanks!
Most LED bulbs will fit because the bulb housing is recessed into the headlight enough. Just make sure that if you go with an LED bulb, the heat sink and fan aren't too big, especially in diameter. You will have absolutely no issues fitting in an HID bulb given they have no cooling apparatus. This makes them actually easier to fit and more reliable concerning heat issues. LED vs. HID, each have pros and cons.
As for drilling the dust caps, it will be required in most cases because whether LED or HID, they often have external in-line components such LED drivers and HID ballasts that will not fit inside the headlight. Drilling the caps allows for the bulb wires to run out so the driver or ballast can be externally mounted.
I personally have HIDs for my Low beams and LEDs for my DRL/High beams. For getting an idea of what an installation is going to be like, here's my write-up on the LED kit. You can see in the pictures how I have drilled caps and mounted the drivers and capacitor under the headlight. https://www.kizashiclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=4127
