I hate auto correct!!!
I have researched LED lighting for 12 volt automotive systems several times in the past and I intend to eventually replace some or most of the lighting in my 86 GT with LEDs eventually.
As long as the kits are designed for your car and engineered by known and trusted manufacturers or companies, I don't think you will have any issues.
One thing I have learned about LEDs is that they do not draw anywhere near the power (current/amps) that an old incandescent bulb does. This is a good thing, but in some cases such as turn signals you may have to install resistors to make the electronic components in the system operate correctly.
Study up on what you intend to do and read any reviews and installation documentation you can procure before purchasing.
