Hey guys, I just received burgertuning set of angel eye bulbs for my 2011 328xi alpine white. These angel eyes are great & reasonably priced. I know a alot of people on here with e90's are asking about angel eye upgrades, Go with http://www.burgertuning.com/ if your budget isn't over 100$

I have a picture of what the stocks look like next to the LED upgraded ones & a picture of the car at about 5PM outside.. I was trying to get a night picture but it is just really hard cause it flares up the camera... They look amazing at about 6:30 7:00pm when the sun is starting to set. The install was great & easy.. I recommend these to who ever is looking for e90 upgrade angel eyes. I'll post a picture of what they look like around 8PM and when sun sets hopefully tomorrow.
The camera on my iphone doesn't bring out the actual detail. In person they are a really nice color.
Install/comparison.
Pictures Updated..




Night Time.


Night Picture Tonight.

Hope you got a flame suit on for the led strips. PS the hpb angel eyes are brighter and the same cost.

Are these the Cree AE's? I ordered a set from Burger because I was already ordering a JB4, and after reading page upon page of reviews, these seemed like they would be adequate for the price. They are a pleasant white color, much better than stock. Perhaps not as bright as some, but still very nice.

Something about the anonymity of the internet that brings out the rudeness factor in people. Don't take it personal, it's normal on any forum to get negative feedback when you are new. Welcome aboard!

LED strips could be worse. I was debating these because BURGER'S products are all pretty good, but Upon reading some reviews they aren't as bright as I'd want them.

Good for you though... its your car. As long as you own it, you have the final say on how it looks.

We'll the LED strips aren't the normal ones that you get at autozone... The ones I installed they aren't visible at all unless on.. I wired them to the angel eyes, so pretty much they will be on as soon as the angel eyes are turned on either manually or on auto mode.

See thats cool.



What are you doing for low-beam bulbs? I'd imagine you arent running the stock halogens... but i'd hope you aren't running obnoxious HID's that are blinding everyone.....

No, I'm not running the HID's, I changed the bulbs to the ZXE silverstar bulbs. They aren't as obnoxious as the HID headlight bulbs. they are actually pretty nice. I plan to do a couple more mods to the car before i upgrade to another bmw an sell it within this year. The LED's look much better at night and they are pretty cool to me . I think it's only trashy when the autozone thick led strips are glued right under the headlight... Smh...

If you have Halogen bulbs, then replacing them with HID's IS obnoxious, because HID bulbs were never meant to be used with halogen reflectors..

I knew very little about the LED's I ordered, other than the color. I really like the looks of the Lux AE's, so don't think I'm knocking them in any way, I just felt that in my situation the Cree's were adequate.
P.S. It's really hard to choose AE's based on a picture on the internet!
