I bought mine from namotorsports. Great Service. They even fixed my lux when I ran into an issue after like year and half.

NAMotorsports is the only dealer for the bulbs I believe. I even asked mds82 if I can get it directly from him but I was told I had to go through NAMotorsports.

And yeah, great service and nice guys.

the LUX H8 are plug and play. they take about 5-10 minutes to install.

i have seen the HID angel eyes and the inner ring is so blindingly bright, especially at night

Probably cause he does not have the Lux installed on his car.

It took me less than 5 mins to install.

small hand is the key factor here. If you have small hand, and you know what you are doing, then 5 mins shouldn't be a problem! If you need a hand, you know where I live

lux h8 are led; so they should last the lifetime of the car right?

do they always flicker and are they brighter or as bright as stock?

Actually I find "flickering" pretty during ON/OFF, since it's also with RD AEs, which I don't recommend. Like the color they illuminate in a dark, but you can't see them for sh!t on a bright/sunny day....

^^RD is not really sux I actually like the bluish colour. I think the colour is pretty special unlike other blue AEs

I am very interested in lux as well. But when you install it on a e90, are you supposed to do a bit modification to fit in?

well not really modification, you just need to cut out a plastic clip that is holding wires, so that gives you enough room to fit the LUX unit.
