Here's the breakdown of the EUR76.01 taxes (± US$100.00):
  • costs for advance of funds: €0.50 (± US$0.66)
  • VAT import Belgium: €50.51 (± US$66.40)
  • formalities: €25.00 (± US$32.86)
Parbleu, gotta pay the tax DJ or it's return to sender...

They look great and match the eyebrow! Have installed them in the weekend. Had them for some time but due not had the time to install. Love the 5000K and want a set for my X5 E70 also!

It's like the 1M: many want them, but they are hard to find and come at a price.

With this small feat the eyebrow does no longer look like a possible aftermarket LED gimmick, but blends in harmoniously with the LUX coronas and Xenon beams. Like puzzle pieces falling together just right. A more refined, optimized look.

Take your time for the install. No need to take off the rear covers (but a bit painstaking for the hands though). Keep maximum clearance for the adaptive headlights motor (avoid the wiring and LUX resistor/power supply box from entangling with the adaptive light motor - choose a hazard free location). Check all the seals when clipping the rear covers back on, to avoid humidity from entering the headlight unit.

Kudos to Ruf for fixing this DIY job for me (and his wife for the moral support ).
