Best and brightest angel eyes for an 08 e90. Install without bumber or tire removed

Between

Lux
Umitza
Mtech

For angel eyes

Cano install without removal of tire or front bumber. Maybe just turn the tire.

Looking for the brightest.

You forgot OSS- and there are literally thousands of posts on angel eyes.
I would strongly suggest a search.
Good luck.

Lux for plug n play. No argument.

If you want to remove your headlight encasing, then you could get OSS, Umnitza, ect

Personally, I'd go for the Mtech's because there isn't really noticeable difference in brightness between them and the Lux option. However, the Mtech's fade in and out like OEM whereas the Lux's flicker.

The best is OSS, but Lux is the way to go if you don't want to open up your headlight assembly. It is far easier to install the Lux by removing the wheel. I have large hands and could not tighten the Lux through that little opening on top.GL

on a '08 e90 is is much easier to remove the wheel during the install. It will mos likely save you 20 minutes if you do it that way
