H8 led replacement

Has anyone experienced RFI issues after replacing H8 bulb with LED assembly for the Halo's? I made the mistake of buying 32 watt "direct replacements" only to learn I needed to modify heat-sink to physically get to fit in the socket. The rest went smooth and I was "deaf dumb and happy" until I went from my music collection to the radio..... Any one know of a source for the required constant current drives that are EMI/RFI clean?

the only company that I have found that states no RFI is http://www.e92-lighting.com/

Pricing quite a bit higher than others..... but I guess you get what you pay for

FYI
Stay away from these 32 watt H8 LED lamps for our Angel eyes.
These are being sold on Amazon by Autolizer.

The description from the seller was as follows:
H8 32W 360-Degree CREE LED Halo Bulbs 6000K Super Bright Xenon White BMW Headlights Super Bright White Angel Eyes Lamps for BMW E60 E61 E90 E92 E70 E71 E82 E89 1 3 5 Series X5 X6 Z4

I paid $69.99 shipped. I just received them and low and behold they do not fit. The Large, extra wide heat sinc does not allow the lamp to seet into the socket housing and twist lock into place. The heat sinc fin hits the 2 mounting screws that hold the reflector in place on both sides and do not allow you to lock the lamp in place. Autolizer/Amazon agreed to take them back. I am disapointed. I was hoping these higher wattage (32) LEDs would fit and work for the price.

Any recommendations in this or close to price range. I am not going to pay $250 for a set of the high end lamps. Its not worth that much to me.
