    OP, I know that you were asking about LEDs, but I hope that you will give some consideration to HIDs. Excellent output and "throw", proven technology, available in a variety of color temperatures (I recommend 4300K), and I almost never use my high beams now. I would consider HIDs in the low beams, then if you want a color match in the highs, consider SilverStar Ultras or similar halogens. Just another option. And you will be well under your $300 max.

    The reason that i would go with HID's i live in NJ with cold weather LEDs do not get hot enough to melt snow on the headlight housing in bad weather just something to think about

    Way better than stock, the thrown isn’t as great as HID but I expected that with LEDs
