Best option for LED angel eyes?

Ok so I really hate the yellow angel eyes on my e92. What is the best (by best I mean brightest and most even) LED option for the e92? I want to get some that match the HID so just a clean white color. I've seen a few sites selling them, but it's really hard to tell from the pics which one is good and which is crap. I also plan to switch out the bulbs for the fogs any recommendations there?

Try OSSDESIGNS...Only bad thing is that you would ship your front lights housing for them to install it for you.

LUX H8. Whatever you do, don't get Racing Dash.

WeissLicht/LUX/OSS

by far the best system for the e92 is the AngeliBright system. It is the brightest, easiest to install, most evenly distributed light between the inner and outer rings, and the whitest LED light designed to match the factory Xenons.

Here are some shots:

I love my weisslicht angels eye upgrades...OSS is mad expensive and not worth it IMO. Idk what they were thinking when they priced those. I've heard good things about LUX too. Try meeting up with some local members...it's the only way you'll really know what you want.

Damn those are nice too! Everyone claims theirs are the brightest so it's almost impossible to know without seeing them all under the same conditions. If it was a $20 bulb you could say the hell with it and try a few but at $300 a pop not so much.

The WeissLicht are the least expensive by far, but I've not seen any decent pics of those. They seem rather dim in all the shots I've seen.

Weisslicht isn't the best in daytime. But I don't mind that they aren't that visible. It's when its getting dark that all angel eyes look the best. If it was sunny out by me I would take a picture for you but for now it's a bit hazy. Here are some quick shots of mine...sorry about the quality. They were taken with an iPhone.

The problem with the RDs is 1) Uneven light output for both rings and 2) Aqua blue color. They were also very unreliable, we had lots of warranty replacements unfortunately. It's a shame because in general RD makes a good product like their LED license plate housings.

The OSS Designs setup is not for everyone since it involves shipping of the headlights and a lot of custom work but totally worth it.

For a simple PnP option, I'd recommend the LUX or Angel iBright angel eye units

Which of the two would you consider closest to OSS? I really like the OSS angel eyes, but shipping my lights is pretty much out since this is my only car. I recall some guy in Miami making some DIY angels that looks amazing just like the OSS this was a while ago when there were no real options for the e92.

^ Neither will come close to the look of the OSS setup.

Since you're in West Palm Beach, shipping your headlights going to Miami should only take one day. If anything, take a trip down to Miami for the install if you ever change your mind.

do you fuckers even bother reading the existing threads on this first? since you figured out how to register and post, i assume you can search and read.

to keep this on topic, <$200 = leave it stock, $200-300 = lux h8 or AiB, >$300 = oss,
