Best bang for the buck headlight

Ok so I am at the point where I want to swap out my OEM shitty yellow bulbs for something that Omits more light. Now I do not want to retro fit my headlights or spend a fortune either. I have read multiple reviews on different bulbs but have yet to come to a solid conclusion. My main concern is more light omitted than stock. Needs to be a direct drop in as well. This is for my 08 e93 as well.

I have heard mixed reviews about my buddies running the lux v5 so i'm on the fence about those. I've also read people running the lux h8 and x-ph and being happy with those as well. Any help?

Thank you for mentioning our kit, we do offer customer satisfaction guarantee for 14 days. If you do not like it, simply return it for no fees.
LUX is a very popular option as well.

Are you talking about the angel eyes or the headlights?

Gee, I don't think this has ever been discussed before.

Not to mention the plethora of threads on this subject that are all over this subforum. Search.

The newest posts from 2015 in that thread are 95% about lux lights. Nothing against them at all but it's really not much of a comparison thread.
