Sorry for the delay.
One of the main reasons why these are hard to see in the direct daylight is because the fact that the color of the light produced is almost the exact same color of the sunlight. With the stock bulbs there was a noticeable color difference so there was a contract between the sunlight and the yellowish of the halogen bulb. Since the LUX is a 6500k white, which is like daylight, you loose that color contrast and they blend together. I hope that helps explain what you are seing there.
Also in the picture you posted the outer rings are hard to see because of the angle of the photo. If you are too close to the car the outer rings are not visible at all
