installed my Angle eyes today. Kinda disappointed

installed my Angle eyes today. Kinda disappointed by the look i was hoping they would be brighter. Here is a pic. Install was kind of a pain for the first 10 minutes then i found a trick to it to fit both middle fingers in to twist it.

Anyone else notice that not both lamps are not even, one is way dimmer almost looks off. OR is it just my car?

Angel eyes never really brighten the outter ring that much. Better ngel eye led wil give much better results.

I would have gone for the 20w cree.

Angle eyes look awesome in the daytime because the headlights are off, these are only noticeable at night. Cant turn off the headlights at night hehe . Tempted to return them and buy the LUX now. Worth the difference? Lux are 250$

Yes, LUX is worth the difference but you may want to consider their new V4s. I had the V3s and they are definitely brighter than the Cree 20 w, but still not the best during the day. I now have the Umnitza Orion V2s, the same as OSS. Love them

I installed Lux on mine a couple weeks ago. As others have mentioned the inner ring is always going to be brighter than the outer ring. Overall I'm happy with them. They're the best when it's partly cloudy (or darker) rather than in direct sunlight.

Here they look the same as my cree 20w. In this picture they dont look like they are all worth the difference of 200$ im going to wait until after sunset and see how i like them. IF they dont satisfy me im going to by the Lux v4. damn i was hoping i would use that money for a VRSF downpipe!
