BTW... for those not following the other thread... it would def appear that these ARE NOT the same as RD. EFX is different in many ways. Night time pictures will help us see how white and evenly lit they are. Can't wait for these pics!

Well my decision has been made! Where can you buy them? So how many sets do I need to change? Did you change the corner angel eyes? Or will the one set of EFX H8 will be enough? Sorry, prob a dumb question..

There's 1 H8 bulb on each side that powers all of the halos on that side. There's a separate bulb for the inner headlamp which lights up during cornering, but that's not a halo.

OK gotcha. Thanks. So I just need to buy the one set off ebay and I will be all set and the halos will all be the same color?

Yep. For the inner turning bulbs (not related to the halos at all) you need a pair of H3 bulbs. I suggest reading the sticky at the top of this forum for all your bulb fitment needs!

Yeah, I read that a while ago, but I guess it just didn't register haha. I guess I thought the H3 bulbs were for the other set of halos, just one of those days haha. But I got it now after your explanation, thanks again.
