excuse my ignorance, but the lighthouse on the left is different than that right?
I have a light for the angel eyes similar to a lighthouse on the right, which I see very little during the day.
I would rather light in the left box (OSS Pre-LCI w / Black-Out) which is very beautiful
You can mount it on my E90 for 2005?

^ GP Thunders suck. They are the very poor man's solution to upgraded angel eyes. I've been through GP Thunder 8500k bulbs, then RD Dash LED angels, then LUX H8's, and finally OSS Full blackout. and I can tell you that OSS Full blackout is WAY better than any of the others by FARRRRR

I have to agree about the GP Thunders do indeed suck, I just bought a pair and was really disappointed. They are white but they are no where as bright as the stock oem bulbs.

P.S. If anyone in the Philly, NJ, NYC area wants to buy them off me I'll give you a good deal.

E92 AE LEDs w/o flashing on startup?

I am looking for Angel Eye LEDs for my pre-LCI E92 without flashing/flickering on startup.
I found LUX H8 is one of the brightest LEDs but they flash on startup unfortunately.
What's best alternative to LUX H8? AngeliBright? MTEC?
HID and OSS/LS3 are absolutely NOT in my options.

If your LUX H8 flash on startup, then any LED angel eye will flash on startup. The car is only doing a self test upon startup

Really?
Someone told me AngeliBright doesn't flash on startup... I don't know if it's true.

That is true with AiB systems.

Flickering only appears if the lights are set to Auto mode, which uses a different form of BulbCheck. No flickering is on when the lights are set to off.

Either way, it only lasts for less then 2 seconds.

Too bad...
It's regarded as illegal modification in Japan.
So Japanese LEDs like PIAA or BREX do NOT flash on startup.
Mine is called "M3 Doping Edition" from BREX and the intensity is over 1000 lumen.
I am looking for brighter one...

It depends on the car honestly. ANY LED angel eye system will work the same. If you set the car to AUTO then it will not flash on starup


is that the system you are using? If so you are looking at Maybe 100 lumen, not 1000 lumen

+1, but there's so few comparisons of AE's in here.

Hmmm.... I don't think so.
We can get Racing Dash LEDs here in Japan too and they never flash on startup.
So I believe there should be some LED products without flash even in the US.
