Anyone has comparison shot of this new LUX with BMW's new stock white LED halos we have seen in new 5-series and 3-series? Below is comparison shot of LUX AE on Z4 vs BMW stock LED halos on 335i.

Seems that among M3 aficionados there's also a consensus of preference of the new 5000k LUX Angel Eyes over the older 6500k version: less blue-ish, more white:

We dont ahve a 1-series to test on so we are waiting to get pictures back from our customers that we have mailed them out to already. We have 8 sets of these going out in the mail today and should take 2-3 days to arrive. There should be pictures posted by the weekend.
As for price, they are the same price as the standard color which is also $245. The brightness is the same on these as well.

Open to other suggestions, but for now seems fine, no issues with the adaptive light motor
Pulled the trigger and just ordered a set of those "LUX H8 V3 Custom 5000k Color" though their website http://www.luxangeleyes.com/products.

Posted pictures convinced me that these will be much more harmonious with the white eyebrow than the OEM stock set.

Match to stock eyebrows is really nice, feels like this is how car should've come from the factory.
lol , I'm loving the Hialeah warehouse photoshoot. Didn't realize you were from Miami, too. We should organize a SoFla 1M meet one day.

LOL indeed, I needed to go to a custom ironworks fabricator which led me to the Hialeah part of town, needless to say not many 1///Ms have been spotted in that particular section.

We should organize a So Flo meet, spotted a few 1///Ms over the last couple of months but fairly scattered about. There was a VO in my garage actually for a few months but haven't seen it recently. BTW, I am hoping to get this guy to come over for some Euro coding (e.g. delete a). amber lights while headlights on, b). double pull for door open, c). seat belt chime, etc.), maybe we can make it a group thing if more folks are interested. Had it on my 135i prior and loved every bit of it.

The VO on the left is dying for a coat of wax. The owner needs to be flamed for lack of care.
