Review for some new angel eyes I got

A couple of months ago, I've received these new angels eyes from a buddy of mine to compare the brightness of my previous lights that i was running. The new lights look nothing short of amazing. After installing one and comparing it to the lights that I was previously running on my 2011 E90 328xi. It was hard to believe that these were brighter and whiter than my LUX H8s. After being convinced, I sold my LUX angel eyes. I could not be more pleased, these new lights are more crisp and during daytime they are visibly brighter than my lux. For the price I got them for it was definitely worth it. I've been currently running these for the past 3 months, and they have been very reliable so far. Thank you "patrickkc" for hooking me up with these new lights. I was truly impressed with the new angel eyes and satisfied.

Here is a picture below showing comparison of the new lights I'm using, as well as a daytime running shot.

patrickkc has a group buy going for these right now. Glad to see a review for them before I send him the cash! Thana XU!

The Lux lights look crisper though..so where you can see the halo better. Is the difference negligible during the day? I have the stock gold ones on my e92 and am considering lights like these..are they really that blue or more white?

The Lux H8 only look crisp at night, but during day time the outer ring is almost invisible. I am using the Lux H8 v3 right now, and I think an overall brighter set of LEDs is much more desirable. I'll wait for some more real world reviews for these new LEDs by patrickkc before jumping in.

Any way you can take some pics comparing these angel eyes to the LUX in sunlight? Really trying to figure out if its worth getting these and then selling my lux. I'm most concerned about how they look in direct sunlight
