9005 led replacement recommendations?

Hey all, just bought a set of 9005 bulbs to pop in the new ride, the fans on the back of them stuck out too far. Does anyone have a specific one they have installed successfully and still be able to install the factory cover? The only ones that seem to be legit and not have a huge ass end on them, are DRL replacements.


Thanks

Or if anyone knows if I can just pick up a set of LED factory housings and plug and play without any programming needed. I would've just got the option form the dealership, but since this was an '18 they were trying to get rid of, they gave me $4000 off on top of $1800 in discounts, on top of the $4500 tax credit... so you can see why I didn't put up too much fuss lol.

As an FYI to anyone, if you get on retrofit source, they actually offer a housing extension with their bulbs, so if your bulbs stick out too far, you can drill a hole in the dust caps, then insert their extensions to stretch it back about 1" deeper and seal it up. Just ordered a set myself.

Can't believe they put freaking halogen bulbs in a $35k car.
