My AEs are not lighting evenly

My AEs are not lighting evenly. The inner rings looks like it lights brighter than the outer rings. I have DTech LED lights. Judging by the pics of other manufactures bulbs on the forum, this should not be the case. Any thoughts? Did I install the AE LEDs incorrectly?

Is it me, or is it the Bimmer?

That's just the way the crappy BMW rings are made. if you want evenness, I would look into something like OSS, LS3, or the Orions V2/4.

Since my E92 is LCI, I did not have the most experience with aftermarket AEs.

I did install a set of LED AE on my friend's pre-LCI and you have to make sure that you aim your LEDs toward this little mirror inside the headlights. It should IMPROVE the evenness but won't FIX the problem.

Blame BMW. Its a design flaw that can be overcome by:

a) OSS/LS3

b) Getting HIDs that pump out so much damn light that they are basically even.

I went with option 2 lol
