For what it's worth, I had a friend come over last night that has a stock LCI 335i, they are, without a doubt, blue in tint.

Yeah, the LCI halos definitely have a blue hue to them, but they match the HIDs in LCI cars. Did the HIDs also change in color temperature for LCI headlights?

The 5000k Lux bulbs match the non-LCI HIDs very closely (I have them), more so than the 6500ks. I think 5500k bulbs would be spot on.

They are worth the wait - if they were'nt, I'd be the first to tell you. I'm not a fan boy just B'cause I have them. They are a solid product.

Bought and installed mine on Sunday.

Extremely happy with the product. Light color is perfect; white but not blue.

Comment from Mrs. MMME30W: "Wow, they look soo much better - totally transforms the car."

once again, thanks for this comparison shoot. Like myself, many prob have the same questions and this gave me a lot of clarity and visual confirmation on what to purchase.

Looks good - but the outer ring should look better (even in daylight). Might be worth double checking your bulb alignment (it'll feel snug even if the tabs are set in the wrong order). GL.

I think it's just the pics. The rings look brighter in person in both day and night. I also do not think the rings could possibly be installed in any other orientation given how little margin there is in the tab/slot sizing. However, I've been wrong before. I'll take a quick look tonight...thanks for the head-up.
