Was told mine would ship on Nov 15. Was delayed for two weeks with no communication about that. Finally just shipped Monday.
No email or PM about the order being further delayed than I was already told. Not pleased about that.

There actually was info posted up on the for sale page. Unfortunately i had about 4 different problems that i went through in getting everything, so that pushed back the shipping date

Sorry if this question was already posted but, what is difference between H8, 4.0, and 5.0?

Do you make a 8K version for the M3?

There might have been, but I shouldn't have to check the for sale page to find out when my order is going to ship after the date promised. That is never the case when ordering. No one says check the for sale website to know when/if your order is going to ship.
Especially when you are charged as soon as you place the order, but the product doesn't ship for another 3 weeks.

This is true. I did contact NA Motorsports, and they were always responsive and apologized for the delay. Although it would have been nice not to have to initiate the follow-up, the product does seem to made well and so far seems to work as advertised. At update here would have been nice.

I just recieved mine last week. I replaced my GP Thunder's with the LUX H8's. What a difference!!!! No dimming at all when you turn on the headlights.

Just plugged mine in today. They look so sweet. The pictures really do not serve justice to how good they look. My only complaint is that it seems like the outer rings are much dimmer than the inner rings. Other then that installation was a breeze and matches OEM headlights.

Does anyone else's bulbs just loosely sit in the hole? There is no click or securing of the bulb assembly. You just rotate it and it sits there loosely. I actually had one unscrew out and fall out of the socket, making my angel eyes not lit. Wasn't surprised because they sit so loose and regular road bumps can make them back out. I don't understand why they don't fit firmly.
Other than that the product is great and well made. Light output is great too. Something has to be done about how loosely they fit.

Mine fit snug enough as well. As far as the inner and outer rings being out of balance in terms of brightness, that is purely a result of the design of the lights themselves.

I will get my good camera out and get a nice daytime pic out sometime this week.

I was just marvelling at mine tonight. Getting food a inn-n-out and eating outside and I clicked the unlock button on my key fob so the LUX DRL's came on. damn they are bright!!!! love them but my favorite thing is seeing their reflection in the back of a nice clean car at stoplights. ahhhh yess.

Now the other side has backed out. I can't believe noone else is having this problem.
I am having to go in there every couple of days to screw them back in and they still sit in there loosely. I find this to be completely unacceptable for a $225 part that they can't get them to screw in correctly.
Calling NAM tomorrow. It's clear these won't sit in there. Pretty lame driving around tonight when the passenger side was most of the way out and the outer ring had NO light whatsoever. Pretty ghetto for a $70k car...

Installed mine today. Went easier than expected, seem to fit in only one way and tightly. While driving a short time later a DRL warning light for my left DRL came on my dash then went out. It hasn't come back on, and after I stopped I checked the connections and they were tight. My car is an 2010 E90. Has anyone else seen this?

Exact same thing happened to me on my 2010. Same side. It comes & goes. Very interrmitent. I won't see it for a week then the warning light will come up 5 times in one day. It's bothersome. The Angel Eyes continue to work, but throw the error light. Spoke with Marc & he suggested I checked the black boxes for anything unusual, but everything checked out. I saw another guy on the e90 post side with the same issue. Thinking of asking for a replacement for the drivers side if it doesn't go away soon.
