Another set of Lux rings installed

My first try to install them was a failure.
But that was my mistake for not following directions.
This time, that angel eye cover was tight but it closed properly.

This is a comparo.
Lux installed on driver side
OEM on passenger side

No problems this time.
I tried the install a while ago and could not fit the angel eye cover.
it would not snap into place.
But that was my mistake. I did not screw the kit properly.

This time, I did it correctly and it all went fine.
the angel eye covers closed with a little push.

I really like your E90, I am hoping to make mine look very similar to yours! I just don't know about Blacklines on arctic? The pic you have of the rear of your car, i don't think does justice to the blacklines! I havn't seen a pic of blacklines on arctic that I like, I love the splitters, and I am going to get a chrome grill to look like a 330. Not big on chrome trim around the windows that the 330 has though!

Thank you!! I can't take good pics, but the Blacklines do look great on the car. I think Blacklines look good on all colors though.

Good luck on the install!!

As oneshare325 has mentioned, I am passing my LUX kits to another fellow enthusiast and LUX fan. I know they will be well used and taken care of...

To reiterate, I unistalled my LUX as they were highlighting a pre-LUX condition/damage on my car. They remain a well-engineered and stoutly-built solution.

Group install?!?!?! It takes all of 3 minutes to change the bulb . I would like to get those bulbs, but I am wary of them.

I tried the silvervision bulbs from bimmian.com. The bulbs were significantly more orange than amber. I like the lighter amber look as opposed to orange...

Yeah but AJ, these are OEM bulbs...they should work better than the aftermarket stuff (by better I mean the colors should be better matched).

Hey we desperately need an excuse to get together...I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel here...work with me
