LUX V3. I don't think anything is as good as the LCI leds though.

Get whichever brand comes out with the amber LED option first.

Between the two I would say LUX. I had AIB v3.0 and was not happy with them.

Do it. I was seriously disapointed with the AIB. For $300 dollars they were not up to par IMO.

That's why I now have the OSS angel eyes.

Had TWO pairs of AiB...both of them failed. The driver melted and caused a mess in the headlight compartment. And they are $300...go figure.

Alright!

Waiting for the Amber one! Please match it with the corner turning light for E92

Amber will be so much noticeable than white/blue under daylight condition.

OSS is the only way to make a similar effect to E92 LCI

I didn't think of that. I have no problem with amber lights in front of my cars.

If I code them out, what I'll have left? Nothing? How can I change them to whites? Bulbs or covers? I'm not sure how they are put together. Most likely I'll live them the way they are now.

you can have them coded out so that they only turn on when you use your blinkers, and if your looking to have the bulbs white you can get the led bulbs and i'm also pretty sure that you can buy regular HID blinker bulbs.
