Well, didn't learn anything since they don't import the H8 LED replacment into the US. It's gotten some negative reviews on brightness, anyhow. Still looking.

GP 8500K H8 35W
GP 8500K H3 55W

Total cost: $42.45 including shipping at hidlightsusa.com
Does this work, or do they have to be the same wattage? 55w H3 and 35w H8?

The wattages you quote are the stock wattages.

Thanks Greg. I should have checked that out. I misinterpreted what Chino said about "same". I get it, same as stock, not same as eachother. Sorry...

QUESTION

Im interested in doing the GP 8500k but what I would want to know is there a
way to make the Outer (Larger) Rings Light up just like the Inner (Smaller) Rings?
Even at some points and angles the Outer Rings don't look like they are lite at all

Is there anything I can do to make the Outer Rings Light up stronger just like the inner
Rings?

Thanksq

the simple answer is NO. it is very difficult to get equal illumination, LUX is one of the best for this, but it is not available for e92.

GP Thunder 8500 all the way. They are inexpensive and give results that are on par with expensive (overpriced) LED solutions.
