budget AEs modmy3 crees or e92 dtec crees

So I'm finally thinking of changing the stock AE. Wondering what people thought of these 2 AE upgrades on a budget. Yes I know LUX and MTEC are the great just looking for a cheaper alternative. The modmy3 AEs look like BMS's but $30 cheaper. Just wondering which is would be better.

Lol get AlpineMSS or LUX. Alpines are like 180-ish. Great quality, harder install, very bright.

If you can do the work yourself this blows LUX and Mtech outta the fucking water.
