That would be great if you could mate. Or can I just have yours haha. Well I told him to put the value down when he sends it so the custom don't mess around with it.

Aww don't tell me that. I hate waiting too long. Sometimes when I order stuff it takes like a month or 3-5 working days and that's from other country.

What colour did you order. I when for 10000k

maybe i'm missing something, as i've been reading a lot of these threads.

But what one earth is in these things that makes them cost between 80-200. It looks like some LED's in a turned metal holder with a couple of resistors. Some of the prices of these things are absolutely shocking!!

Hope they come down significantly before I get my LCI Halogens

Have to agree with this. I got a set of BMS LED's which were considered cheap at 100 for some LED's, some wire and a bit of metal\plastic. The LUX ones are 200! They must cost all of 5 to make in China. I reckon someone is taking the proverbial.

indeed. Given on an E46 you could buy a whole set of angel eyes, power supplies and wiring for about 30... how on earth can anyone justify this kind ofmoney for just an LED bulb set.

I had canbus compatible LED's in the sidelights of my old E46 before i put angel eyes in, and they cost about 15 a pair. And they had four LED's in total, two per side. SO thats the same number as these LUX ones are showing off about. So where exactly do they suggest the extra 185 of value comes from?

Yeah they're taking the piss alright, because they know there's fcuk-all of similar quality at a reasonable price to compare them.

Feckin joke really, considering I recently bought a super bright LED torch from Aldi's for 5 quid - and it was made of metal!
