You can buy LED lightbulbs for your car for cheap on ebay, maybe not for the headlights though. You can also buy entire light units for the headlights and taillights.

Don't make your own, you are likely to end up with illegal lights. The total optical power, directionality and colour are very tightly controlled by standards.

How may LEDs you need and if a driver is needed depends on what LEDs you get.

Why do you want to convert to LED lighting on your vehicle?
