LCI E90 Halogen Angel Eyes HELP!!

I am looking to change out my existing halogen angel eyes and want to replace them with a white, brighter led setup. I know a xenon retrofit is best but I don't want to deal with the hassle. I have done research and see individual reviews but no one has a side by side comparison. Currently, I am looking into the

LUX E90 Halogen AE

Racing Dash

Mtecs

I think these are GP?

Anyways, I would like to know which product produces the brightest AE for halogen lights.

Trust me when i tell you that your options are SMALL. There's really only one or two bulbs that look decent and only at night. GL and let me know if you can find something you can actually see during the day.

LUX is the best plug and play unit.

For daytime visibility, you need a custom setup. Like OSS or LS3.

The celis technology BMW uses in the current 3 series just doesn't allow for daytime visibility with a plug and play bulb.

Which bulbs would you say are decent?

Best? If by "xenon" you mean HID, then no, it is actually the worst. It doesn't solve the daytime visibility problem at all and looks terrible at night. With the OEM AE implementation used in e90, the LUX H8 is as bright as you can meaningfully go. If that doesn't look good for you, then the only path that's left is a complete teardown to switch from OEM AE to OSS or LS3.
