Did the vendor's shipping instructions include you retrieving them from a hollowed out tree in a lonely forest?

Here's a link to his LEDs from his vendor:

If you look at the video below the product images, they appear to be RDs.

I thought the general consensus was that RD's werent that good at all? I would have to say that these are my favorites. Bright but not flooding the headlight.

the video shows them only in darkness... a sign that they completely disappear in daylight situations.

That is what I have come to expect of RD's. They dont look anything like Remmib's car. The last shot has full sun on the passenger side and it still looks good.

Well, I don't know if their're RD or China copies of the RD, but I like the look and their brighter than the old ones I have, from Umnitza, and cheaper too.

People should be aware that the RDash 6w for the E90 has overheating issue. I've had a couple of customers with their light tubes melted and deformed due to this.

Hrmm...don't think I'm gonna put them in my compilation, then...since they don't seem to react exactly the same as the Racing Dash ones (by various accounts, anyway).

The hard part about taking photos from various sources is that they vary too much:
-Different cars
-Different exposures
-Different lighting conditions
-Different Settings (Your lights are brighter when the car is running vs. if you just clicked the key)

That's why we did this:



And this:



(Photos complete with timestamps and exposure/aperture settings in the file are available upon request if you think we tampered with these images in any way!)

I'm willing to acknowledge that AIB might be a more solidly-engineered product - for twice as much, though ($149 more).

Beauty of the market system. There are customers who think it's worth $299 to have a larger heatsink, there are customers who think it's only worth $149 to convert their angel eyes to hyperwhite. Thanks to EAS and Weisslicht, both customers can be satisfied!

Also, that's the H8 Version for E92 - the version I posted was for E90

On a side note, though, we at Jlevi are consistently impressed by the products coming out of EAS. Good work, boys!

Problem with that is that it only provides a night view, where people are just as interested in the day view. That's why the comparison shots I have are as close to similar as I can make them, and there are both night/darker shots and day shots for either.

Also, it prevents any inherent bias that might come from a vendor (understandably).

My goal was (and is) to provide a 1 stop shop for the most commonly used Angel Eye replacements, whether they be bulb swap outs or full kits, so that people can look at them posted in an objective viewpoint.
