E82 LUX Angel Eyes DIY (W/ Adaptive Headlight Error Fix)

Hey all,

DIY I did for installing LUX. This will probably work with other brands that use a ballast as well. I just purchased LUX.

Enjoy!

For LUX? There isn't one really. Google "Kelvin color temperature and common bulbs"

Incandescent bulbs are often between 3000-4000 Kelvin (K) which is a yellowish color. Think your standard household 60W bulb.

LUX V5 ranges between 5000-12000K (bright white, to blue-white) the factory xenon color temp is likely around 6250K, in that neighborhood at least.

If you wanted the factory look in an LED bulb I think they have a yellow LED option.

If you're referring to matching the LED in the eyebrow, 5000K worked well for me, matches up nearly perfectly.
