PIAA or Lux 5.0 which is brighter?

Ok so im looking to change my angel lights and from what ive seen so far the best and brightest lights are piaa and lux 5.0
my question is which one is brighter and has a better light blue color. which one has better overall quality. ive seen people who cheaped out on angel lights and it really shows so for this mod i really wanna get the best quality. any suggestions?

5.0 is awesome, but its HID white. 6000k I think the LEDs are. They are a LOT better than PIAA IMO.

I had 3.0 and it was meh...a bit dim.

Lux 3 is already much brigher than the PIAA, we were compaing the Lux 3 and 4 today, and obviously, Lux 4 is brighter and Lux 5 is suppose to be even brighter, so you can pretty much expect the Lux 5 is significantly brigher than the PIAA
