whats the best and most reliable e90 angel eye?

i had mycarr angels and they burnt out in less than a month.... i was wondering what were the best lights, im looking for something really bright and i prefer a whiter color over blue, or whatever matches the stock e90 xenons best. It would be great if one of you fellow members can help me out by telling me which eyes to get and where to buy them from.

thanks much

F1 Autohaus MTEC E90 v2

With a proper heatsink design and quality LED chips, you will not have any problems with the MTEC v2 units failing. I've had some customers swap out their RDash units that overheated and destroyed their original light tubes.
