LUX angel eyes for 1M

I'm considering getting these for my 1M

I just don't know whether these also make the eyelid section brighter or just the rings?

Also are there any better alternatives to Lux or this is pretty much the best system to make the light whiter?

If somebody has written something about these please point me in the right direction.

Thanks,

Alex

As indicated, it only changes the yellow-ish halogen color of the "coronas" (rings) to LED white.

Right, it's a long wait
N in the end I still had them shipped me the H8 v3 6500k instead of 5000k
And I'm not here to judge but the result is not good
The one out of the 2 unit can not be fitted well in the oem socket
So we had to trimmed a little on the unit to fit
Not good... :

  • 4300K has an approximately 3100lm output, which is more than 3x the light output of the traditional halogen light and is the color temperature with the most output. The light appears fairly white, and has light yellowish hue when reflected off the road identical to the OEM HID equipped vehicles. It is ideal for customers who do a lot of back road or canyon driving and need the optimal visibility;
  • 6000K has an approximately 2900lm output, which is 3x the light output of the traditional halogen light and slightly less light output compared to the 4700K. Although it has a bit lesser light output, it emits pure whiter light with a slight tint of blue;
  • 8000K has an approximately 2500lm output, which is about 3x the light output of the traditional halogen light and slightly less light output compared to the 6000K. While it has a bit lesser light output, it emits bluer light than the 6000K. This is one of the most popular of all color temperatures by customer demand;
  • 10000K has an approximately 2300lm output, which is more than 2x the light output of the traditional halogen light. 10000K produces a deep blue light output approaching violet and the blue is noticeably deeper than the 8000K. This is the most popular color temperature by customer demand;
  • 12000K has an approximately 2000lm output, which is more than 2x the light output of the traditional halogen light. This color temperature puts out a deep bluish violet light and is deeper colored than the 10000K. It is for customer who are looking for the most extreme and most exotic looking light output.

Great thread. thank you guys for the inputs!!

EINSER, I'm going to definitely consider the Alpinemss, but do these also improve the eyebrow line, or just the coronas?

Can BMW themselves sell the bulb that are fitted on the new models? Like the LCI 3 series or X5?
