I have the BMS 4-LED version which looks pretty close in terms of installation and it took me 25 minutes to install.

Is there any chance you're holding sets for those of us whose "order" is limited to the speed of shipping? I sent mine yesterday.

Sorry all, however we have sold out of all 50 sets of the 5000k version already. We are going to start sourcing parts to make more in time too.

I was about to mail mine back for an exchange but I think I am going to leave good enough alone. The match is actually better IRL than is pictured, they are bright and most important they are working without any issues. I'm good!

I had the 6500k and installed the 5000k yesterday, looks fantastic! great that LUX brought this variant for the 1M drivers, they match the eyebrow really well.

+1

I am also really pleased with the customer service at LUX. They really took care of those of us who got 6500Ks and wished they were a closer match. I am glad I switched.

I took some pics of my BSM 135i with the 5000K units, FWIW, but haven't downloaded them from my camera yet. I have seen pics on AW & VO, but not black.

just swung by the dealership to take a look at the 5000k installed on my 135 as i had my buddy who's a mechanic there install them for me and i'm really undecided if i actually like them better then the 6500k... i did notice with the 6500k that they didn't match the brow exactly and looked a little too blue... not sure if the 5000k almost looks a bit yellow... the 6500k sometimes looked like they matched and others they looked like they were too blue... thoughts?

Personal preference. I think the originals look slightly blue. They match the Xenons a little better than the 5ks. For me it was about
the discrepancy with the eyebrows. The OEM H8s are obviously way too yellow and the 6500k LUX are too blue. So again...your call.
