Here is my summary to date: I just got Alpine HID in and installed them and they look stunning, no codes, no flickering, no bleeding like pictures would suggest. They have to be seen in person. I couldn't be happier. Some people say they are too bright...they are probably the same people that baby their car and worry about every little detail. I say fuck that and I could even use them a little brighter. It took a while for them to come in but I'm in Germany.
I had LUX at one point but never installed them since i got a 2010, one thing i know is I got the pimpest angels around here.
