So with the current problem that AJ has encountered, are we still planning on meeting this weekend? I'm still good with Saturday, even if it is just a get-together for a few drinks.

Ok gang,

As you know with that non-Lux related on-going issue/concern some of us have been undecided to proceed. After much consideration, I went on ahead with the install and these are the results....

Overall, I found the quality of the kit to be good with novel engineering ideas baked in. The install was pretty straightforward as per PMB install save for that pesky step involving replacing the black cover.

Perhaps related to that non-Lux issue, I found the brightness of the kit not in line with the results enjoyed by mds82 and caster. One look at the picture and you can see how my angel eyes are afflicted....

They're staying on for now, they're just about OEM bright.

Donny,
They look good. we should plan a happy hour after hours so I can see them
at night.
Not sure if this is because of the angle of the picture
or the issue we have been discussing but I see...
the driver side inner ring as the brightest
the driver side outer ring as the least bright

is that what you see?

Pretty much...except I think the driver's side outer rings are just as bright as the passenger side rings. I believe LUX unhindered should be as bright as my driver's side inner ring... as per mds82's and caster's pics. Pity...

How do you like them fogs? Do we have a sale, then?

Guys,
Were you able to return the units?
I contacted the seller and we made an agreement more than a week ago.
Since, I have sent him a couple of PMs but no response.
