The corona issue is a BMW design flaw nothing to do with LUX. You'll have the same issue no matter what brand you use. if you stand 15 to 20 feet back it looks good, up close looks bad, nothing new. Only way to get away from this is to open your headlights and add LED rings. LUX is a much easier mod.

it has been mentioned time and time again that angle and distance are very crucial.. why do people keep coming back asking the same question again and again is what beats me...

A others mentioned above, the angel eyes are only viewable from 20+ feet back, regardless of what bulb you have in there, including stock. I should have reworded my initial response to say that a picture should be taken from 20+ feet back otherwise the angel eyes cant be seen. As well when you look at another car on the road you generally aren't 5 feet away.

This question for installation of the LUX H8 V4s in an LCI E90:

Is there any way to fit the black box (with the control switches) inside of the lens housing, so it can be sealed back with the black circular cover. I'm concerned about the housing being exposed to the elements (including water) without that cover in place. I've tried my darnedest to get it to fit in there, but it seems to be too tight of a space, especially because the wiring coming from the control box is rigid for a couple of inches. Any help/direction is appreciated. Thanks!

*Sorry, this question was moved to the appropriate general H8 V4 thread. But, I don't know how to delete the post here. Pardon me!

Hey RadFox. I've personally dont tons of installs on the E90 LCI's and never had an issue with fitting the power supply inside the headlight. You should be able to tuck this away in the inside of the headlight compartment. I would recommend putting it in with the power supply first with the wires facing outwards. After that just tuck the wires inside and put the back cover back in place.

I appreciate the response and advice! I was able to bend the rigid wiring coming from the control box enough to make it fit. Still seemed fairly tight for me, but at least I can seal the housing now.

The Pre-LCI E90's are tricky... You can double the light input to the rings but there is minimal brightness differences perceived by the user. We have found that the current LUX E90 V5.2 angel eyes are pretty much as bright as we can get them while keeping temperatures on the light safe.

I'm new here and just recently bought your H8 V4. Absolutely loving it

The installation took me about an hour...... had a hard time putting the bulb back on the driver side. There was literally no room for my fat fingers or could have a clear view of the tab. I had to feel it and not to hit the led either.

Definitely worth. One of my colleagues is getting one too.

I can barely see my AE's on my e92, I agree the lux are better than stock, but I think they are overpriced. Im going with a retrofit solutuion to achieve the brightness Im looking for.
