LUX H8 Ver.3 Prototype Installed - no more outside-of-housing power supply

This is kinda like teaser.

Yesterday I installed the latest LUX H8 prototype (release candidate) on my E92.
I feel very honored to be able to test the latest version. Perhaps I'm the only one now?

The new LUX is called "LUX H8 Version.3".
Expected to be released officially in early-mid February, 2011.

Marc, aka mds82, did a great job (again) on this already-top-rated device. Now it has more refined form.

- No more overheat issue.
- No more annoying power supply/fuse box hung outside.
(You can store everything inside of the headlight housing!)
- Brightness and color are the same as the current version.

You may find they look like the 1st "recalled" version but my Ver.3 has the power supply numbered "4810".
(Please note that mine is still a prototype. The components and the design are subject to change.)

Honestly speaking, the installation is a little bit tough as many said.
You may need crafty hands to slide the heatsink under the complicated wires in the small space.
Me? It takes only 5 min on each side!
I used cheap latex examination gloves for better grip and protection against scratch - a bit of my advice.

Everybody says the LUX H8 has so far been the brightest solution of Angel Eye LEDs.
Yeah! I have to admit it. The LUX H8 definitely rocks. It's just awesome!!
I can't say anything other than that. Take a look at my pics!
