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.
If you want to compare then compare to the PIAA 6500K LED H8 AE's - not the halogen version. Then you will be comparing LED to LED

UGH, what am I supposed to do with the v2 I just received today?! I am so tempted to install but I kind of want to wait until the new version comes out.

Here's a custom Amber LUX H8. You'll see photos on M3Post very shortly!


Any updates on pics? I'm curious to see how these came out. I always liked the contrast of amber/yellow to hid. My fogs are already this color for that reason.

I hope they do the right thing and offer a trade in program. I had the first set that installed completely in the lighting box then they recalled them and I had no choice but to turn them in for a product that had to hang out of the lighting box. I feel this new lux version is what I paid for the first time.
