advice on h8 led bulbs

hi guys

ive been looking to change my bulbs and install the led bulbs to make the angel rings look a lot brighter.


my question is there is so much stuff on ebay ranging from 20 to like 200.

whats peoples opinions on these? i know they will need decent resistors too as they overheat.

I think there isn't one that are as bright as the bmw lci ones now. Your best bet is the bms led ones that neils groupbuy is offering. I have the spilt 2 led which cost me 50 quid from ebay, even it looks nice, you can't see anything in the sunlight.

The other options are gpthunder and hid xenon angel eyes
( hard to fit and may fail mot? . )Those options are what people normally reccomend .

I may have GP thunders H8 bulbs to sell in couple of weeks time once the new style led bulbs from Neil turn up from the group buy if you want to try the cheaper option?

I am quite happy with the gp thunders, only thing that lets it down is they dim slightly when xenons are turned on hence why I have gone for the group buy as they dont dim

These are the new 4 led bulbs that are much better than upgrade h8 ones ...
