Custom 5000k Lux V3 Angel Eyes

I originally got the regular 6500k Lux V3s and I noticed that it had a distinctive blue tint to the light. It looked a bit aftermarket compared to the OEM Angel Eyes on the LCI cars and didn't match up with the HID headlights very good when it was on.

Lux suggested a custom V3 that would address this and use lower Kelvin colored LEDs. We settled on 5000K because it is less blue than the 6500K that come on the regular ones. These definitely do the trick. They match the HID headlights color much better and no blue color from the Angel Eyes - just pure white light.

So if you want a more OEM look but love the intensity of the Lux V3 LED, here's an option to consider. I like it!

Here are the units when they arrived today.



Here they are on the car with a back to back comparison.







Okay, some people wanted to see daylight shots of the 5000k Lux. I'll give you one better. I went to an autocross and a photographer took this picture of my car while I was lapping the track. Totally untouched photo in bright noon-time sun. You can definitely see the Lux 5000k.
