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).
Glad you are happy with the way the LUX h8 V3's turned out!!!!

As well ot the OP - All LED Angel eyes will get hot but this is normal and it will not cause any problems or issues.

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
Lol. Not taillights man. Headlights. I didn't turn them on. I mean cops know there's a light that comes out of those angel eyes. I think they have seen enough BMW's. I can still drive around at dawn time. These days I go until 5:30 and then turn on the lights.

Haha I think you misunderstood what I meant. I know you had your headlights off, what I meant was when you have your DRL's on only, which for us is angel eyes, your taillights are off. I would think this is much more noticeable to a cop than DRL's versus headlights, since there is nothing on at all back there. So I was basically just wondering out loud if you coded your tails to be on while the DRL's are on, if you might be able to run around like that at dawn or dusk. I imagine middle of the night you are gonna get pulled over regardless, since as you said I am sure most cops know there should be a headlight coming on inside those rings.

First use google and type out what you want to search.
Copy/cut what you type out on google. Go to search on m3post and paste it on.
The screen will move but don't worry. Just click on search again and the words you paste will be there. Now click search and it should start searching for what you need. This is how I search on my iPhone.

Damm no shit! I didn't know about that! Our taillights are off when we r on DRL's? Hmm. But he didn't say anything about taillights cuz he was on the opposite direction while I was driving. I am pretty sure BPM can do the coding. get in touch with THE TECH. He should know about this coding.

ALL LED upgrades heat up. Just put your finger on the heat sink after they've been on if you don't believe it.

If you want your tail lights on while the angel eyes are on just turn your headlight switch to the first position.
