From directly in front of the car, they are easily just as bright. Because of the design of our angel eyes, they tend to "wash out" from the sides, because the light tubes need alignment to work correctly. On the road, they look pretty good. You'll notice that a few people's pictures from the sides look washed out and that is because of the above.

I like mine a lot. I've been stopped by 3 people asking if I retrofitted the coupe LCI headlights.
