Non OEM H8 Bulbs dont look that hot ...

With non OEM H8 bulbs like your GP thunders, PIAA etc etc etc

... the inner DRL's ... yeah those ones closest to the kidney grills ... are just sooo much brighter than the outers that it actually does not look good in my opinion ... the intensity of the outer coronas seem so weak

I ended up puting my originals back on ... (with pain ... damn stupid three grooves were hard to find before i twisted the damn thing in)

Are there any H8 bulbs around that will be just as good as the OEM's in terms of all four coronas being lit up more or less the same?

(BTW i do prefer a white look than a yellow)

IMO, Lux does it the best...but they only offer e90 solutions. hopefully something e92 style will be out soon. you can check out plenty of pics on e90post to see if you like it. Most buy Lux 4.0 or 5.0

LUX is the way to go! Just wait for them to come out w/ something.

There's also the PIAA route you can go with. You can search on the board for pics.

Other than that, a few on e90post have retrofitted HIDs for the halos but that just bleeds too much light.
