got my lux's installed tonight

no pics yet, but im kinda disappointed. i thought these were the brightest lights but ive seen brighter. good product tho i just had too high of expectations. also i thought they were gonna be bluer cuz all the pics make em look blue but i guess thats my fault for not looking at the color rating. overall satisfied just feel like i overpaid

m3 angel eye kits use CCFL rings (cold cathode fluorescent lamps), meaning that the rings themselves emit light, not from a light source that travels through a plastic ring like e90s

lux is the best it gets for e90s, unless someone modifies their angels with CCFL rings

I'm 110% satisfied with my LUX 5.0. The color matches my xenons perfectly.

And to brightness, mines are pretty damn bright. You can definitely see it in the daytime with sunlight out.

I did not downgrade. I simply saw my 4.0's next to another members 5.0's. I like the 4.0's more.
