Question LED Headlights... old mazda

Hey everyone, just registered and wanted to know if anyone knows about import tuning / mods or maybe specifically headlights and even more specifically LED headlights. I want the headlights that new vehicles seem to come with I don't know if they are halogen or LED. I have been told that what I'm looking for are halogen lights either xenon or PIAA and whoever else makes them but it occured to me as I turned on my LED flashlight that I'm really looking to put in some LEDs but I don't know where to get them. Anyone know anything about this? Can I get them like regular bulbs in an auto store or do I have to do something trickier like installing new housing or buying new headlight sets, and if so will any of those options work on an old mazda 323 hatchback??

Those are high intensity beam headlights, not LED headlights. Only a few vehicles have the LED headlights, the Audi R8 I believe is one of them. In my opinion, all high intensity headlights should be banned. Try driving a smaller car along a 2 lane highway and a freaking european SUV comes at you in the other lane, you are absolutely blinded. They are a HUGE safety hazard.
