20W CREE Angel Eye Bulbs

After a lot of research online and comparing different angel eye bulbs I decided to go with the 20W CREE Bulbs, and for the price, $65 on Ebay since I had 25 ebay bucks, i could not be happier. The right eye was an upgraded bulb from factory, a PIAA Xtreme White Plus bulb, so it is a little bit brighter then the factory bulbs to begin with. I would definitely recommend these to any who wants to spend under $100 for new angel eye bulbs.

Here are two quick photos I took, ill try to take more soon.

I've been wanting to make my corner light white. I guess I'll get these instead of coding it.

Yeah, they are cheap, look good and pretty easy to install. There is a little orange LED in the conner that stays on even after I changed the bulb. I found out that there is not a way to replace or remove this bulb, but I was able to disable the led by cutting the wire that supplied power to it, on the wiring harness that runs into the headlight assembly. I did not get any error codes by doing this and it makes it look much better.

Do your turn signals blink at normal speed? Did you have to install resistors?

So when you use your blinker to signal, it'll blink white?

I am not sure, i would just open up your headlight assembly and make sure it looks like it would fit, if it looks like the right bulb i would try it, CREE is just a type of led so hopefully you would get the same results as i did.

I believe he raises his price when he gets low on stock, he did that once before and then once he got more in the price went back down. I paid $89.49

I would have gone LUX, but when I got these off eBay for $60, since I have ebay bucks, I just could not justify paying 4 times more for the LUX. What are the chances of, any of these things you say could happen, happening? I read many reviews and none that I have read said they have had any problems with them. As for brightness, I have seen some comparisons between these and the LUX Angel Eyes and to me the LUX bulbs dont look that much brighter. It could be different if you actually saw them in comparison. One day I will save up some money and get the LUX Angels Eyes because everyone really likes them, I just didn't have the money and couldn't pass up trying these out since I got them for $60 and for the price i am really happen with them.
