Yeah. What is the side by side comparison? I know I just purchased my v4, but if there is a significant difference I might just have to buy the v5.

We do not yet have a side by side comparison of the lights but we are working on that. The LUX H8 V4 lights were rated at a 80 W halogen equivalent producing 850 lumen per side. the LUX H8 V5 lights are rated at a 120W equivalent producing 1200 lumen per side.

Interesting... This is the first time I recall hearing your V4's only put out 80W total vs 70W stock. Wonder why that info was never presented before when you were selling the V4's? Maybe because it doesn't sound very impressive vs. stock? But 120W for V5 vs. 70W stock does sound good! LOL...

All the numbers sounds great and look to be way more powerful, but as you've pointed out yourself in your post, numbers aren't always what they seem....

So forgive me if I sound skeptical, but I do wonder though how come as a manufacturer, the first thing you didn't do was put the V4's in a car side by side with the V5's and take pics... When you obviously have them both in stock.

Basic part of the R&D you would have done I'm sure before deciding to sell them - ensuring that they vastly outperform - to the human eye - the V4's. So why not share that info?

Hmmm...

PS I'm a V4 owner, so I'm not here just to bash...

Sure i understand all of your points. There was no reason in particular that we never released the Wattage equivalent of the V4's other than we never deemed it that important. Since other resellers starting to advertise their lights as a the #'s of W's we decided it was relevant to start providing true and accurate ratings of our lights.

As for pictures, I personally don't have a coupe so its a bit difficult to line up a car that's local to get good pictures. We are working on getting something scheduled however with someone to get these Photo's.

The LUX H8 V4's are no longer for sale and they have been replaced by the V5's as well. These lights are not competing against each other but rather the V5 is a successor to the V4's. We have started to use the latest and greatest Cree LED's to make the V5's brighter. As i mentioned above the output of these lights increased 350 lumen per side to a total of 1200 lm, which is a large enough increase that this can be seen with the human eye. I hope that helps answer your question

Appreciate the reply. Many of your buyers as you would have seen from the last round, sold their existing V3 sets to get V4's, so it would have seemed like a great marketing move to have that info upfront when you go to sell your V5's... Your business and it's your call of course.

I just don't see how you couldn't find a single person with one of the 11 BMW models and years it fits during your R&D period to test them out in their car at your shop.

But more importantly, wouldn't you want to know how it looks installed in a car and that it doesn't melt stuff, etc. before selling them???

Are the outer rings still dim like the v4's? I sold my v4's because the lumination in the outer rings were almost non-existent. Please advise.

I'm not sure how I feel about laying out $225 for the V4, only to see V5 come out less than 30 days later. Are you offering a trade-up option?

I'm curious as well, though as most vendors have said over the years (and if you take a look yourself), the main issue is the design of the rings, where the source light is placed on the inside ring, and therefore, by the time it travels to the outside ring, it dims quite a bit. That can't be solved by just throwing more light at it.

I'm in the same boat with the V4. My V4 has been installed for about a week. Hoping there is a trade-in option.

Hi Ken,
We do ahve a 60 day return policy as stated on our site, so if you would like these can be returned and traded in for the V5's. Please send me an e-mail directly to Sales@LuxAngelEyes.com

The outer rings of the car will always be dimmer than the inner rings due to the design of the headlight itself. However since we have increased the total brightness of these lights the outer rings will be brighter now than the V4 rings

One major thing to keep in mind is that you cant overcome the design of the rings. The outer ring has small grooves behind the ring and these grooves reflect the light outwards. At certain angles the grooves are not visible as you can see in the 1st picture of this stock headlight below. From an angle the grooves are not visible so you will not see any light.

What i always recommend to people is to step back from the car 30 feet and look at the lights straight on and around eye level with the headlights. From there you will be able to see the rings fully. The 2nd picture here is taken from 30-40 feet back and is a comparison of the stock bulbs vs LUX H8 V5 around 6900K. The picture has not been Photoshopped to change the rings at all and is exactly the way the looked in person as well.

E90/E92's may have varying results as their headlights are different than the 1-Series
