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.
Do they come with install instructions?? I just purchased them so I was hoping they did.

Thanks

No instructions came with my set but I had experience from swapping the original H8 bulbs last year. You can also find install vids on youtube.

If you have big hands, it can be cumbersome especially the passenger front corner. Do the driver's side first. When replacing the headlamp covers, make sure the 2 bottom tabs are actually seated in the slots.

I just received them today! I really like them a lot! Color is almost identical to the xenon headlights! During the day the outer ring is dull but the inner ring is perfect! For the price I am happy when comparing these to other products! I am glad that I waited this long to get aftermarket angel eyes! When the sun goes down they look perfect! Pics don't do them justice...

Mike i read through that thread that you attached to one of your earlier posts. You state 2 day shipping. I ordered mine yesterday and it shows that it will arrive on Monday. Did mine get shipped ground? I should get them on Saturday if it is 2 day right?

Yes.. With USPS sometimes the Saturday gets missed as a day in their quote. It should be 2-day but USPS is known to take an extra day once in a while. It still can show up on Saturday. Their estimates are not necessarily very reliable

I installed mine today. These things are really well made. I'm a pro with the covers now, got both swapped out in 20 minutes. The passenger side is such a pain.

The color on the $80 wide angle kit I got on eBay is whiter - the BMS have a slight blue tint. They don't seem all that much brighter, but I was looking at them in the garage. They look real nice, certainly happy with them.

Cool. Can't wait to hear your feedback. We've sent a few to Australia already.

These were designed to be just a little bluer then most kits so you have a good eye

I noticed that too compared to the older 2 Led version. But this is for sure brighter
