Got mine in. Took about 10 minutes for both sides. Thanks for the tips guys. Guess it helps that I've done a handful of H8 AE changes before too. Looks amazing!!!

One tip I have would be to not only check the tab positions of the outgoing bulb, but to also mark the correct 12-o'clock insertion position on the ingoing LUX cylinder with some sort of marking tool (chalk?). After fumbling the bulb into the socket, I found I had to re-orient myself back to the correct position.

Coming from Weisslicht LEDs, the LUX are impressive! I'd say they are about 50-60% brighter than the Weisslichts. Probably not twice as bright. The Weisslichts were pretty good to start. More subjective evaluation to come. And pics too!
