Installed 2500K Angel Eyes

Got tired of the white LED rings and decided to go more unique with today's standards

Also extremely bright and visible during the day, weather sunny or not. Best twenty bucks I've spent in a while

Looks good... I like the yellow over the white too. We're in the far minority here.

Everyone has the white led rings/strips now. A few years back they were really cool and all. But the more common they got just became too boring for me. This mod really stands out. I can assure you that.

I love the yellow. I have the overpriced PIAA-stupid bulbs. When they pop, I'll certainly pickup these bad boys!

Wouldn't they overheat? Those nokyo and PIAA bulbs get real hot

Looks great. I just did the PIAA hyper yellow 2500K on my Alpine white M3 this past week as well. It's a cool retro motorsports look IMO, not ricey at all.

As requested. They have more of a yellow look that the pictures/camera don't quite reproduce digitally, but it's close enough. However, if you think they look good here, you'd love them in person.

Looks great SYZ.

In person, they're much more of a fire yellow and far brighter than any plug and play option out there.

I'll post some more pics in a few days.

Never had a overheating problem. Does it throw an error code or something? I believe they're the same spec with the OEM bulbs.

Looks great and better than the white Angel eyes. I had been shopping for a while and didn't know what to go with. Now I have a couple of options. Thanks for sharing!

Very much agreed. Pictures don't do it justice. If I had photoshop, I would have adjusted the image to better represent them.

Bulbs are the same rated wattage as OEM, so there should be absolutely no issues with overheating, unless the manufacturer is lying about the wattage.

Nokya Hyper Yellow

I just installed a set of the Nokya H8 Hyper Yellow. I just thought the Lux angel eyes were too expensive and I wanted something that did not make my car look more like all the 335's out there. I decided to give it a try since they were pretty inexpensive.

Below is a shot in bright sunlight comparing it with the OEM bulb and a pic from as slightly different angle with them installed on both sides.
You can definitely see that they are brighter and at $18 it is the cheapest mod I have ever done.
