honestly, if you want OEM quality youve gotta pay to play. I would put this in the same camp as HID bulbs, you can get those for like 20% of OEM bulb cost (not from dealer, just OEM manufacturer/part) but those are the ones that flicker, dont turn on, die after 2 months, etc. CREE LEDs arent all created equal as far as I can tell, ive seen "1000 lumen" CREE LED spotlights that look more like 50 lumen compared to my 270 lumen CREE LED spotlight.

I bought a 40 w LED angel eyes manufactured by the Same manufacturer (new sun) on eBay. They claim that each bulb is 40w, so in total 2 bulbs have 80w output. So far I am satisfied with those. They are really bright and almost light up the outer ring fully, of course when looked head on from a certain distance as it is with all the led angel eye bulbs.

Tell you the truth most LED replacements with 4 LED per bulb look very dim. Had two sets eBay and one from the forum. Output on them were weak and disappointing. Outer ring was barely alive at night and blank during the day. As said you got to pay to play my DTEC v7 with 8 LEDs satisfy my need both day and night and look OEM too. I have a review for LCI model with them for e90 somewhere.

Also don't follow wattage see if you can find lumens or LED count, most if not all 4 led are on the same level well due to manufacture and bulb source.

The ones that I got, have 8 LED's on each bulb as well.
According to the manufacturer they have an output of 1900 lumens.

20W are not too bright for todays standards.
You should check out the 40W that are readily available.

We also have an 80Watt version (160 total watts) and we have a ~55Watt coming out soon too.

As far as ordering from that website I wouldn't trust it nor would you know how long it's going to take as they probably come from China.

I know a lot of guys insist on all of these lights being the same but I can assure you they aren't. We actually tested a few of our low balling ebay competitors lights. I can't wait for you guys to see the difference between the cheap stuff and the good stuff. Although they look similar in pictures the difference in person is quite astonishing.

Not to mention good luck getting any customer service, warranty claims or passing any charge backs if necessary to China based companies.

Jeff is correct but its a gamble people are willing to take one thing I hv to ask to Jefff are your products made in CHINA or USA. Most of the Shipping from China is FREE(on this website I go into) or vendor pays a freight and taxes but as normal NON Vendors were are exempt from paying these items
