Generic LED Angel Eyes Review (Lots of pics)

So since I just bought my car, had christmas shopping to do, and just started a new job, I really didn't want to drop $100+ on a AE upgrade. So I decided to try out some generic Amazon bulbs.

The bulbs look just like a lot of the other ones and were only $40 shipped with amazon fulfillment (which I needed to use to return the first pair b/c they were blue).

This is what they look like out of the box:


Overall, I can't complain about them. I was just aiming for a color change and not really a brightness change, which is what I accomplished. I haven't really got a chance to look at them in the afternoon, but in bright daylight you can't really see them.

I apologize in advance, my phone camera will only focus on one side of the picture at a time. Also, all the pics are at night so all you can see are the lights and not the car.

I will upload more/new pics after Christmas when I get my Canon Rebel T3.

EDIT: Here is a gallery of new daytime pics, I made an album so I wouldn't have to post each picture individually.

Here are some pics during the install:







Just wanted to show you the difference you can get just by spending a little, although Idk how long these will last.

Pictures look great at night, curious to see how it holds up during the day though.

Do you know if those would fit the 07 E93 as well? I'd probably buy some if they did

I don't think so. These bulbs are for a pre-lci e90, and im pretty sure the e93 uses the lci (H8) bulbs.
