Thanks! The only reason im running them is because of how the optics work in the angel eye light pipes. It seems like you need a bulb with a particular height and beam angle and while i've spent $70 on really bright ones, they mostly illuminate the inside ring. Somehow the cheap ones I got fluked the formula and work really well in the E82 housing. I have since fitted a higher current power supply from a more powerful angel eye into these bulbs which bumped up the brightness a bit.

The photos make them look really bright and while they're not bad at all, it would be nice if they were a little brighter. I need to get around to buying a spare set and soldering on some really high quality LEDs in them, upgrade the heatsinks and then ill have the perfect angel eyes

The link I bought mine from are long gone (was like my first mod 2 years ago)

These look the same as the ones I got though:
