My e90 LCI Lux v4 Upgrade Pics

Installed my new LUX AE's last night in about 30min. Tried to capture a few good photos but was around dusk during install.

Set to 5200k & took pics about 20ft back.

Before (I had my Driver's side burn out)


Close Up (5200k)


Another Close Up


After: Taken today around 4:30 EST (Camera set to 5200k temp for accuracy)


Install:
Took about 30min. Read a good post from another user explaining to turn the bulbs TOWARDS the engine when removing and AWAY from the car when tightening. Should turn about 1in". Hardest part was aligning the "T" tabs but you just turn till you feel it not move then you know to turn harder.

Final Thoughts:
Extremely satisfied. Was hard to capture the outer ring with the proper angles in the pics but overall the lights are what I expected. Fill the entire rings evenly and don't bleed on 5200k setting ( I didn't even try the others ). Does Flicker off on fade out but I like it.

Time to update some profile pics!

Thanks LUX!

The design of the headlights will only allow the rings to be so bright. The inner ones are bright but the outer ones are simply limited to the design of the headlight
