BMS 4 LED H8 angel eyes upgrade kit review

I got this kit from N54tuning.com. I just got my 135 and I was buying the DCI's from them and I saw these on the website and I noticed they were cheaper than the Lux and Alpine so I decided to take a chance and get them for $129. I didnt expect much and told myself right after buying them...I should sell them and get the Alpine HID's but Im happy with them after installing them tonight.


My father used to work for BMW so of course before we didnt even look at the bulbs or headlights before we took the front bumber off and took the first headlight out. Then we both lol'd after we noticed we just did all that for nothing. Install was less than 10 mins. the components fit nicely in the headlight assembly cover.

Heres some pics that are self explanatory.....(taken on my crappy iPhone)


*Im not doing this for N54tuning.com...Im doing this so hopefully they could give me a discount on a future product :wink wink:....Hey its worked before!







Final product...




If I got screwed over and bought Ebay bulbs for $129.00 please let me know... but regardless I think they look great.


The pictures really dont give justice to the brightness because I think they are pretty damn bright compared to stock. I turned off my headlights driving down the street and they lit up atleast 15ft in front of my car so I was impressed.

Also...I ordered 3 items from N54tuning.com on Sunday night 3/11 (DCI's, Angel eyes upgrade, and Clutch stop) and I received all three today (3/14). From Cali to Miami, Fl. I got the email that they were shipped yesterday and came home to them today. I paid for the cheapest shipping but they still overnighted the parts so Im really happy with the shipping as I expected them to come sometime late next week. Honestly I think it was an error by them but Im not complaining.

I installed mine as well the other day, and they are great! I'm very happy with these LED angel eyes. Pretty much all the BMS products I have are great!

I installed mine two nights ago. I was still running the old Mtec bulbs that I got from e92lighting like 2 years ago. Man, what a huge difference the BMS 4-LED bulbs made. Im kinda of embarrassed I was running around with the Mtecs now. lol

Anyways, thanks BMS/Terry for another awesome product.

Daylight shots? They all look cool at night, but it's brightness in daylight which really sets the kits apart.

I'll think you'll be happy. I installed the BMS 4 LED kit last Friday and they are bright and look great at night, but I think LUX still has the better product. The LUX kit shows up better during the day than the BMS, but in lower light, they seem almost even.

Don't bother taking pics during the day time, unless you have a really good camera, it won't show the true output of the LED kit. In my case, the pictures always turn out alot brighter than they are to the human eye.

Placed my order. Is there any reason to order from N54Tuning instead of from BMS directly?

Just to clarify, those are the BMS that you have or LUX?

Also, how much was the euro LCI headlight upgrade and where did you get them? Plug-n-play?

Do the BMS 4 LED AE's have a resistor box like LUX?

Yes they do have a cylindrical resistor/ballast/cap (whatever) about the size of your thumb. I don't know what's on BMS's site, but at N54 they made sure to not include the pics of it. In fact, it seems like they went out of their way to suggest it's a direct plug n'play replacement for the H8 bulb and not mention anything about how and where to hide the cylinder.

Well i was at work during the day, and didn't get home till it was dark and I installed them in my garage. So the only pics I took were when it was night outside the evening that I installed mine.
