Anyone actually install LED headlights in Halogen Tucson?

I want to know if anyone has installed led headlights in the low beam location on the U.S. version of the 2016 Tucson. I ask because there are adapters sold online, that I purchased, to fit H7 led bulbs into the stock location. I got those and the headlights that are shown in the pictures with this adapter that are supposed to work and they do go in and they do light up just like they should. The issue is that even with heat sinks that are reversible to gain more room, I still have the heat-sink sitting flush with the rear of the housing opening. The cap that Hyundai puts on these headlights sits inside the hole, not on top like most other brands. This means the cap hits the back of the bulb and doesn't fit on. And most should know never to run headlights with the housing wide open to the outside due to dust and moisture getting on the inside of the headlight lenses. So this all leads me to this: there are adapters to hold the bulbs in and these only fit certain kinds of led lights, the lights that do work with the adapters are too long to fit the housing and the cap won't fit on. I had them in and working and they looked great. They also did not turn on any bulb out warning lights on the dash. So I would like to know if anyone knows of any other year/model of Hyundai or Kia that have dust caps for the headlight housings that fit the 2016 and up Tucson? I know some model must be the same size because companies like to use common parts. On a side note, I have installed many LED and HID kits in the past on my own vehicles and for customers as a professional so this is the first vehicle that has stumped me so far.

Wow ok, I didn't realize I couldn't post pictures until my post count was over 5 so I guess I need to post a few first.

but why would you do that, the Led doesn't give you any lights on the roads, get some 55W HIDs instead...

If you have a lovely wife, sexy hot lover, cool car, no problems with the government and revenue authorities, and when you go out the sun always shines and all passers smile to you - common dude, say NO to drugs!
