(another) GP Thunder review

Tried my first mod and wanted to see how GP thunder 7500k angel eyes looked. It's not even worth posting a pic. In daytime at full power the color is okay. When the AE dim at night they look just as yellow.

Also disappointed with quality. First set had one bulb that would flicker on and off. Got a replacement that won't even come on. So 2 of 3 bulbs were no good.

Recommendation: pass on GP or maybe try 8500k, but don't hold your breath.

Sorry to hear man. I thought about them but from what I've read it's either Lux or go all out with the OSS type replacement.

Ended up getting my Lux a week ago and love them. In sunlight they're ok, but any overcast, early morning, late afternoon they look just beautiful. The OEM design just sucks and at any distances within 15 feet, the outer ring can disappear.

But IMO the new F30 and even e92 LCI are "too" bright. The new 6, X5, and 5 seem to be just right. And the Lux is quite close to those

GP Thunders are a joke. Stock looks better.
Go OSS or Lux- go big or go home.

I have those on my fog lights currently. They look great in my opinion.
