Post REVIEW: Lux E90 V6 & HPB Interior LEDs

I've been on the forums for quite some time and have never posted until now, but I could no longer contain my excitement with the simple, yet FANTASTIC, upgrades to my 07' 335. I could write a big, long, elaborate review, but the pictures speak for themselves. I will be changing the turn signals and sidemarkers with HPB bulbs in the near future too. (ordered the wrong bulbs, but HPB has been great in fixing this issue for me.)

(Click photos to enlarge)

Stock AEs


Free LED Amazon AE's from a friend


Lux E90 V6 (Need I say more?)


High Performance Bulbs White LED Interior Kit
(Excuse my messy car. I just moved out to Cali.)


The LUX bulbs appear to be a bit yellow upon reviewing my photos, but they actually match the stock white HIDs perfectly.

Sorry, I don't have any "before" pics of the interior. I also forgot pics of the trunk and glove box, but I think you get the idea of just how bright these lights are. All these pictures were taken with my Galaxy Note 4 for consistency Long story short, LUX and HPB have a very happy customer.

Wow thats for the great review of the LUX E90 V6 lights. The difference between these and the amazon ones appear to be a night and day difference!

Nice review of the HPB BMW E90 LED Interior Kit. Would you mind if we borrowed your pics for our site?

Feel free to use these pics gentlemen! Jeff, I'll probably be doing some ordering from you soon. Going to start on the exterior LEDs next.

I really, REALLY wish people would take a picture halfway thru the install, so you can compare one against the other fairly (since everyone uses auto mode on the camera and it changes exposure etc from one shot to the next)

Anyone know where the HPBs can be sourced from in Europe?

Thanks.

I actually have mid way pic of the OEM vs Amazon lights, but didn't even think to do so with the LUX lights.... mostly because I didn't have the OEM handy, and the Amazon lights burnt out before I did my LUX install. Sorry I can't be more help!

We can ship to Europe. We are the only authorized dealer of HPB products. Shoot us an email with the products and address.

Not sure if you were referring to the angel eyes or interior kit? If it was about the interior kit, let me know how bright you want them and I can help you choose the one that suits your needs.

There are also countless threads comparing different AE's and different interior LEDs. However, like Jeff said, he can definitely help you get exactly what you want.

Angel eyes. People always take a pic before and after, but due to changes in lighting, the new balance with a bright point, etc they aren't going to have the same contrast settings. If a picture was taken of old vs new on either side, you'd have a much better reference.

At least, that's how I'd try to advertise the actual difference between the two... Just sayin.

You mean like this?



These are HPB 80W, FYI.

Hey Austin618,
Well luckily we have a few before and after pictures already handy, so its OK you didnt take them already. Here is one of the same LUX E90 V6 lights you just installed compared to the OEMs
