First, an update. For some reason one of the Low Beams just stopped working; it's for sure a bulb defect because I've checked the connections and the other LED and the halogens all work in that plug. So I'll be returning it and ordering a different set that was rated much higher on Amazon that I noted below.

I have not yet done any coding since I haven't had time to find where I put my wifi OBD unit, but will probably be doing the checks and bulb types when I do find it. No OBD errors after a 30-40 minute drive with the lights and fogs on, except for the burnt out low beam that seems to be a broken bulb and not a coding issue. Can't say if there's any flickering from warm checks, however--anyone know if warm checks without coding would result in errors? I haven't seen any--yet.

Here are the bulbs I used (a mix of eBay and Amazon purchases based on the various threads and blogs I've read):

As I mentioned above, one of the bulbs stopped working so I've ordered these which have far better reviews anyway:
