FS: GTA LUX Angel Eyes H8 V3 6.5K

I have 2 sets (one from me and one from my gf) of LUX V3 H8 6.5K that have been used for 6-7 months. The reason why I'm selling is because I've changed to the LUX 5K to match the eyebrows. Please let me know if you're interested? Thanks.

Selling for $170 per set.

[Edit] I've decided to stick with the LUX 6.5K, so now I'm selling the 5Ks. One set sold, one set still available.

Are the 5k whiter and the 6.5k bluer?

In my opinion ... yea ... I'll see if I can take some daytime/nighttime shots with my girlfriend + my car ... she has the 6.5k installed and I have the 5k installed, so it should be a pretty good comparison.

Interested in seeing this as I'm located in Toronto and was thinking about changing out my stocks.

just wondering if you got a chance to take the comparison shots? I had the 6.5k and switched to the 5k but I think I'm kinda regretting it... the 5k look awesome at night but almost look yellowish during the day time...

I'm actually thinking the same too ... I couldn't take the pictures because there was moisture in one of my headlights. I had to take out my LUX to reinstall the stock lights before going to the dealer and getting the whole headlight assembly replaced under warranty.

I do like the colour match of the 5K, but like you said ... it's not as white and just doesn't seem to stand out among other cars on the road.

I go to Parkview BMW on Leslie and North of Eglinton and I'm under original manufacturer warranty. Same thing happened to my girlfriend and she was able to get it replaced under warranty as well, but we had to reinstall the stock H8's before getting it checked by the dealer to avoid any warranty voiding accusations.

I'm using the stock H8's right now until my dealer calls me back to get my headlight assembly replaced. Once done, I'll be going back to the 6.5K's.

I think I'm with you on this one... would be interesting to compare the two side by side... whereabouts in the city are you? I'm actually just 5 mins away from Parkview. Kinda just dreading the whole install process all over again! LOL. I have a F30 as a loaner right now and I do know that the AE's dim when the HID's are on however when they're not on the AE's seem to look bluer than the eyebrow.

Did you end up installing the 6.5k back?

Nice! How'd it turn out? Do you like them better than the 5k? I'm debating between leaving the 5k or installing the 6.5k or V4's Where did you go to have them installed?

I personally like the 6.5k more than the 5k because it stands out so much more (especially during the day and at greater distances) ... but if you haven't purchased either of them, just get the new V4's. I got them installed at my friend's bodyshop near McCowan and Highway 7.

What's it called? How much does he charge for install?
