Lux V4 what color setting do you use?

I have mine set on 5200. It reminds me of the new LCI BMW's. What color setting is everyone else using?

No it really looks like the "NEW" LED rings but not as even. Inside on the Lux are brighter than the outside

Not that I've seen. Looks good and seems to be the common setting.

Thats the design of the headlight. the inner ring will always be brighter no matter what you do. The outer ring can only emit so much light from it.

yeah looking inside the "ring" is 1 piece and the light starts at the inner ring thus making is brighter is how I see it.

i feel like there's still a hint of blue at 5200, color wise you can't really tell 5000 or 5200 apart.

I agree with you. I think 5000 is as white as it gets. 5200 has a super small hint of blue.

I wonder if anyone runs them at 12000k

We've gotten some requests for colors above 12,000K actually because that wasnt blue enough.
