Question Stock Exige running lights?

I have two questions regarding 2006 Exige headlights.

1) What are the specs of the stock running light in the Main (High) beam housing?
2) What kind of bulb do I have pictured? It's some sort of wedge LED bulb; this is the closest match I've found so far.

The bulb pictured came with the car and only has 3 of 9 LEDs working. I'm assuming they are all supposed to work, and therefore need to replace it. The right side one only has 2 LEDs functioning.

Has anyone replaced their running lights with LEDs? What did you use and how bright is too bright (lumens)?

1) The 06 Exige stock halogens are 55W H1 for low beam, 55W H7 high beam. 2007+ Exiges went to H7 for both.
2) Not sure, but it's poorly made and resembles some shady eBay kits.

There are lots of LED conversion threads here if you search for them.

Thanks for the reply. So the bulb I'm referring to is the third light. It's in the high beam reflector directly above the H7 bulb.
