As you can see depending on the angle at which you look at the angel eyes elements of outer/inner rings are more visible than their opposite:

In direct sun light (literally with the sun directly in front of the head lamps) the slightest angle offsets at close distance can make one ring brighter than the other. I was trying to show that difference with the close up, the first and second pictures are the best representation of the Lux V3 (i.e. they look fantastic).

Once I get my car back I am going to do some "proper" shoots including indoor areas where the Lux V3s will really stand out. It's really overcast/dusk lighting that really makes LED angel eyes look stunning.

In summary I am more than happy with my choice!
Thanks so much for the great words!!!!!! I'm glad you are enjoying them!

The LUX are still the best answer to deal with the shortcomings of the previous design...
