Please Help- Angle Eyes

What's goin on everyone. I am currently getting my car modified and need help picking out a good set of Angel Eyes. I want a set that is bright white and has a small tint of blue. Could you please recommend a good brand that has what I'm looking for?

Its a 2011 E92. I heard that the LUX AA heat up on 2010+ models.

p.s. Here are the mods I am getting:

-Frozen grey paint job
- Satin powder coated rims (ZCP Rims)
-Red and black oem brake calipers
-Oem exhaust mod (muffler bypass)
-CF side vents, grill, bmw badges, performance rear spoiler/front splitters
-Vorsteiner Hood
-Wrapping the roof in CF as it is a sunroof

First post or not, the info is already here. Use the forum as a tool and you will find most anything out there. The car has been out since 2008 in the US. Likely, most questions have been answered. Everyone wants to be catered to...geez.

FYI, the LUX are NOT the brightest you can buy. Both replacement rings and HID setups will outshine them all day long.

Were you pulled over because the cop knew you didnt have your full headlights on or because your tails were off? I have been wondering if you could code it so when you were just running the angel eyes, i.e. headlights off, your tails would turn on... would at least let you drive around around dusk/ dawn that way.

I dont know.. just an idle thought. I often want to just run the angels when it is dusk and im driving downtown, plenty of light, just dont want to get nailed because of the taillights haha

I wouldn't recommend HID for angel eyes because they will cause your rings to yellow overtime due to heat:

It's isolated at best so far. They have sold a lot of sets and I've only seen one car have an issue.

I switched from Alpine to LUX. Had some iffy customer service from Alpine as well.

Also, even if it's isolated, I'm not taking a chance on yellowing. And at night the HID kits = a blob of light. Sure, they are bright, but I got complaints from guards at the military bases I drove into to turn my headlights off, when only the angel eyes were on. Can't be bothered to turn DRL's off every time I come into the gate.

LUX was the best for me. Bright enough, but not so bright that it turns into a blob of light when the headlights are on too, and very easy to install (no wires coming out of the headlight housings).
