time for a lux H8 group buy?

The price you are paying for those bulbs will incur some duty and VAT UK side

Yeah i found these guys before, the reason i haven't ordered yet is because you will get VAT after you recieve them and i don't want to find out how much that is and I don't really want to drop 240+ on angels lol. Yeah definately get some pictures up when you get them mate, I'm sure that will persuade me to buy!

I was going to PM you.. then i realized i have no idea how too hahah! Is it the LUX H8? You can't get the lux from SDD, i've seen some videos on youtube and in the light they don't seem much brighter/whiter than stock? Is it just the superwhite one's you have?

Are your ones the "easy fit" ones. No cutting, mounting required etc. If they are then they should have a relay box of some sort that sits between the led and the power source

Bascially, these ones:


Have you had any Radio interference with these? whats the build date of your car?

How much you looking for BGM?

Thanks

I've bought BGM's lux H8's from him. Going to have a go at fitting them Saturday. These are the 1st gen V2's so they have a wiring harness so they aren't just plug and play. I'm hoping that this harness produces no radio interference like the led bulbs I had before. They had one of those boxes that lived in the bulb housing which is what I believe was causing it.

If all goes well I will post pics, if not then they might be for sale!

My stupid 10/2006 build e92.......apparently my car has an issue where not enough insolation is in place to protect the aerial from these things. I had some cheap ebay led's that caused the same radio interference.

I'm gutted as they look great

See the pics below, they are crap pics but give an idea




I might be putting these units up for sale......
