Lux V4 vs V3 Pics

Installed the Lux V4 last night to replace my V3's, they are definitely brighter than the previous versions.

I found setting the temp to 6300 to look perfect for me. Sun was going out so I couldn't grab more pics, but will take some more later if anyone wants a specific shot. I'm still waiting to test them this weekend if its sunny out to see how they compare in daylight.

LuX V3

The color saturation of both pics were different. Can you do side by side pics please.

Something is off. Notice how the led light on the top of the turn signal seems to be much brighter as well.

Different color saturation and brightness levels in photo. Utterly useless comparison.

Yea I know about the contrast difference fellas, like I said sun was going down last night and I snapped these in a hurry. I have some more pics I can upload later and I want to test them out in sunlight.

Btw ironman, your links above aren't working.

Something doesn't look right! Maybe it's the lighting or the angle but the outer ring doesn't appear to be on... Is the bulb seated correctly?
