Talk to AE Performance. They have been using them and have had great success while pairing them with the correct springs!

Eventually I want to switch to them.

Here you can see how little working space we have due to the MASSIVE heat sinks of the LUX units.



We were very impressed with the light output of these units.

The outer ring is extremely bright compared to some of the other units we've come across.

From the correct angles, they seem to be just as bright if not brighter than the inner ring! Hands down, these units are the best of the best.















Stay tuned Gents, next few days will be very hectic.
Glad you got them installed with no problems. Awesome pics too. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!

AE list two models, the one for the E9X M3 is the true hardcore motorsport version, not really for street use and the other version is a the non E9X version suitable for street/track.
Which is going to be used on this car?
