I will have to consider the best way to handle this. I think as long as you can do some simple soldering then i can create a DIY .

Not for nothing guys but......the comparison pic with the PIAA hologen h-8's looks very very close. I think many would go with the PIAA and save like $200 bucks if more people saw that pic. If you were trying to give props to the LUX, I wouldnt have posted that. Has me almost changing my mind about getting the LUX now....

True the LUX is expensive but that picture is taken from its context. For one, LUX does not dim, always full power. One is halogen and the other is LED. LED's are much more crisp and not to mention LUX units are specifically designed to even out the illumination on the rings as much as possible. Sincce Piaa is halogen, the inner ring will not be as defined as LEDs. Also, you can always tell which is LED and which is halogen, just the the color. The camera doesn't do a very good job of capturing it. Its just like an exhaust revving on video. the video doesn't do the exhaust justice.



If anything, the LUX should be compared to the AIB or the E92 LCI's AE's and the PIAA should compare itself to GP Thunders and stock units.

The last comparison pic may not properly show how bright the LUX are.
In my eyes, they are brighter than the PIAA. So I posted that pic.
The fact that the LUX are brighter than the full-powered halogen (not at +4V) is really awesome, I think. I've never had such LED sets in Japan before.
Yup, the LUX do not dim even when headlights are on.

Needless to say, the LUX gives more crisp looking to my car by its dazzling cool white color.

you can clearly see the PIAA are yellowish colored
compared to the cool white LED LUX.
LUX H8 over PIAA H8 any day.

So there will be no change with the bulb itself? Just the power supply, correct?

I just ordered my v2's, should be here tomorrow!

Why would you want to change the E92 LCI angels?

Hmmm might have to wait and see what the price is on these new ones.

Was thinking about ordering the City Vision LED's, but maybe for the extra money these would be worth it?
