LUX 180!!! Review and comparison with matching foglights

Just installed the LUX 180. More pics will be posted as my car has a coil pack problem atm.
Installation will take about 15-30mins depends on your experience. LUX has a really good DIY guide on their website, which you must take a quick look at it.

For E90, theres a little knob in the headlight which you will need to pull it apart in order to fit the LUX bulb in there, takes 1 sec to pull it off. Then the LUX light bulb will fit right in there.

I coded the brightness of the bulb to the highest brightness, the results close to newer models LED AE.

Fitment: 10/10
Brightness: 10/10
Color: 9/10

LUX 180 vs OEM

Thanks for posting pictures of these. Try and get some daylight pictures as well since night pictures look pretty much the same for all bulbs.

What size would you need for the angel eyes if you used the same company as you did with the Fogs? Would you need the resistor too?
I have a 2007 335xi i want to do Fogs and Halos for i know the fogs i need an H8 with resistor curious about the angels
