What long term effects are there from the extra heat , in the light housing, using AiBs ?
The AiB will be the closest alternative to the LCI angel eyes used on the e92 models.
Here are surface temp readings of LED, HID and stock lightsources used for Angel Eyes:
Pictured are AngeliBright (left), 35W HID (center) and Halogen (right), things obviously change when installed in a sealed headlamp.
LEDs will always run the coolest out of the three, with HID temps running the highest.
