Cheap 75W H8/H9/H11 LED for angel eyes

Hey guys,

Recently I bought a LCI BMW E90 and also joined the forum. I have the adaptive HDI lamp but the angel eyes bulb is a halogen apparently. I have these bulbs laying around at home and was thinking if I can directly plug them into the car to get a better matching colour?

Through the vendor section here there area few really great choices, including our LUX H8 180 angel eyes. These are have designed Only for the BMW Angel Eye replacements.

LED Angel eyes replacements will be brighter, whiter and optimized for what you are looking for. For example, our LUX H8 180 angel eyes are over 2x brighter than stock, a pure white 7000k and will make the inner and outer rings look more even in brightness. We have been manufacturing angel eyes for 10 years making all of our own products, and they have been tested and verified by countless members of this community.

If you already own them, try them out.

The 75w wonít be an issue right? Like they wonít burn things up? Because Iím guessing the stock halogens are 20w or something if Iím correct?

Product information from bulbs like that are notoriously fake and generally only theoretical numbers, but in reality have no correlation to what they actually are. In short, no they do not use 75 watts of power because if they did they would burn up in about 5 minutes or less.

There is no way of knowing what they use unless you actually measure it with a Multimeter

Most pull about the same power as stock so as not to throw errors. Some folks get caught up on the wrong details.

Do they fit?
Do the function?
Are the bright enough?
Do they last?

Check out the vendor section, lots of options here that work, tested and proven.

The cold and warm bulb checks can cause some LED's to twinkle.
