Correct me if im wrong, but from the various photos posted, AiB tend to be more white in color, closer matching the OEM HIDs, which is the look im going for. LUX H8 seem to look more bluish.

Edit: AiB = 5500K-6000K LUX H8 = 6500K
AiB is 5500K, which matches the factory Xenon almost perfect as intended to be an OEM product.

LUX will be a slightly higher temperature and have a it more purple hue.

I have been torn between LUX H8 and AiB.
I learned I have to accept LED flickering problems if I want brighter one.
But I still don't understand why the condition of flicker occurrence varies among these.

I tried to sort out the conditions in the attached file.
Please somebody clarify the facts?
