how much did you enjoy your lux v3s?

saw the thread about the new 5000k lux v3's and had everything checked out but hesitated and told myself I would sleep on it. Just wanted to know if this is one of those smaller mods you end up really loving ( black kidneys grills and reflectors were subtle but ended up really changing the car in my eyes)

I just installed mine yesterday, excited but haven't driven the car since... I'll let you know. I may even go for a drive tonight still, just to see them in full effect.

I love them
Easy to install vs HID
looks oem
No issues
Well worth the cost
And that's something rare in the overpriced M market

Very much? I find myself inching up on darker cars at stoplights so I can see them in the reflection. I have the original 6K and don't think they are blue at all, but maybe a touch whiter than the headlights.

My friend has the GP Thunders and there is no comparison, they are about 20x cheaper and look it.

Very happy. Car should have come this way.

Although install is a tad difficult if you don't have very small hands. I'd suggest using a tool for the final tightening.

Love mine! Never gets old seeing them come to life or looking at their reflection off other cars in traffic

I have the standard LUX V3 and it's definitely worth it.

I loved mine until one burned out after 3 months of use... It took 2 weeks for company to write me back because Every few months its closed for about a month. It's been 3 weeks since I sent it to get repaired and still didn't get them back. Apparently "there is a problem with tracking my package" and they don't know when will I get it...

As far as product, I thinks it's great.. As far as service... I have to say they could do better.

Terrible rainy night time iphone pic but at least you can tell how bright they are. The color makes it look very OEM... A good thing.

I couldn't be happier or more satisfied. As far as a true plug and play solution, you can't touch these!

I'm pretty happy as well. I find myself often parked in front of large store windows at night, so that when I return to the car, the lights come to life as I light up the engine, reminding me how slick my car looks

That said, I wonder how good / bad the new Alpine HID angel eyes look like in person. They run for $179 / pair, which is cheaper than LUX, but this same reason also worries me a bit.

Had them since 2009 - decent mod but sometimes think about going back to stock to change up a bit.
