Very nice! How do you install these? I read a DIY tutorial on here, and it was kind of hard to follow.

Sorry for not clarifying... the Lux? I read this rather lengthy DIY, and it seemed pretty technical and hard to follow. I'm looking around for easier instructions. I haven't purchased any LED angel eye upgrade yet, but I'm researching before I do.

Ohh the lux install was really easy it was just hard for me because I have big hands. But you are just gunna have to shove your hands in their, and if u go to YouTube and type in lux install for e92 there's a excellent video that shows how to install them.

Based on all the reviews on here about lux I just went with them. They also have great customer service. In the end it's your opinion but everyone on here says lux is the best plug and play solution for BMW's.

Looks really good. We have an install guide on our website on how to install the LUX H8 V3 angel eyes. Basically you remove a cover, remove the stock bulb, install LUX and put the cover back on Please send me a PM if you have any questions

Also, how do you install them? Just peel and apply? Or have to do more? Is it easy to take off if required.

I got them At e92-lighting and there easy to install. U heat up the back of the reflector (the orange one) and heat it for about 4 min with a hair dryer and CAREFULLY pull the orange one off and stick the new one on.

lux does not change any radio interference, nor do any MTEC, or City Vision angel eye leds.

Are you sure you are talking about Lux?

Lux is just a bulb. You pull the old one out. You plug the new one (Lux) in. Done.

The only difficulty with that is that it might require using your hands in some tight spaces.
