Lux V3 Installation Video in 2012 E82

Hi Everyone,

Attached is my installation video of the Lux V3 Angel Eyes.

They definitely work with the LCI 1 Series without any errors.

Hope this helps and clears up any questions about functionality.




Per Request from another member.
The left is stock and the right is Lux.
Sorry for the small pics, the site I am hosting the pics is having issues, will update later.
If you click the photo it should bring up the larger photo for viewing.

Ohh the Lux looks nice.. more of a pure white compared to the oem.

I can't tell in the video but I am guessing both inner and outer rings are the same brightness?

Yes there are but not for the LCI E82 headlights. This is just a DIY to show that it works without any errors or issues if anyone had any concerns.

Oh that's a handy tip haha, don't actually remove the whole cover. Try and leave it locked in or close to locked in at the bottom two tabs. Would be much easier to put back on especially when people have so much trouble with it (Y)

Thanks

It was just left on automatic and the headlights came on since it was a bit darker out.

Apologize for the inconvenience.

If you move the secondary air motor it gives you way more room. only takes 3 minutes

awesome vid! do you mind making another vid of the angel eyes on without the headlights on? i have a '12 135 and my only concern is that the "whiteness" won't really match the led eyebrow...
