Pictures - LUX 5K AE installed on 1M

To my eye, the spectrum and brightness are almost an exact match to the eyebrow.

I am VERY happy with the results.

Wow, that's a pretty good match! Can you take some direct sunlight pics when time permits?

Yes, I will try to take some direct sunlight pictures as soon as I can. Unfortunately, direct sunlight in March in the Seattle area is quite rare. Today would have been perfect, but it was already dark by the time I had the AEs installed, and the rain returns tomorrow.

Added some pics in the first post, sorry for the bad quality but the lights arrived after 5 and it was dark by the time I was done. Will shoot a few outdoors tomorrow, should be a nice sunny day.

Sorry for going OT, but do you guys also change the inner lights (the ones inside the small angel eyes) to something similar in color to the HIDs? If so, can you provide a link? Thanks

BTW, as far as positioning the ballasts, I followed this:

Open to other suggestions, but for now seems fine, no issues with the adaptive light motor

More LUX 5K Pictures

Outdoors on a rainy day -

The color and brightness match with the eyebrow is almost perfect. Both are just a little "whiter" than the Xenon headlight.

Here are some pictures from dusk, it was about 5:45PM, meant to take some pics by the beach during bright sunlight but day didn't go as planned. Will leave for the weekend and post some new pics under bright sunlight for comparo. Pics don't do it justice, looks a lot better in person. Match to stock eyebrows is really nice, feels like this is how car should've come from the factory.
