    Yes.
    Each Hellas has a 55w H3 bulbs, ~1450 Lumens (btw they draw 4.5 amp each, so when all four are on they are pulling just over 18 amps when you turn them on. Enough to dim the dash lights and make the engine dip at idle.)

    Squadron Sports; 3,150 Lumens at 26watts ~4amp for both.
    Squadron Pro; 4,900 Lumens at 40 watts ~6 amp for both.

    Here is my 2017 with stock highbeams;

    I had the Hella harness upgraded to run 100w bulbs but never did replace them.
    HID could be swapped into the 500 casing but not for me.

    LED also light up instantly, they don't get hot though so if it's a snowstorm they might get covered.

    You might try the ebay LED driving light section, look for CREE and look around $100 a lamp..
