Looks good! I'll let other people be guinea pigs and try this out before I jump in.

Completely agree. I'm waiting for all m3 owners to spend tons of money on white light bulbs so I can be the only one with halogen... Crap I just revealed my most cost effective master plan....

Apologies for reviving an old thread but I am trying to make a pick in one of the options listed. Seems like most people went with the LUX and are happy.

For me, as long as it's crazy bright (as possible for a plug and play deal) and code/error-free I'll be good.

I'd appreciate if someone could direct me in one way.

Got some prototype MTech H8 V3. Way brighter than my previous LUX V3. Almost as bright as the LCI angle lights.

How Are these different from the normal mtec v3s? As far as I've read, the lux have been better than the mtec v3s up to this point.

I do not know any of the mtec bulbs previously, but Mtec send us lots of bulbs and modules to test. And these will be there new version. What I can tell is that these are 200% brighter than my LUX H8 V3. I loved my Lux V3, but they are just not comparable to these new mtec ones.

That's a shame, I too would like to see those pics. If they're twice as bright as the Lux, I'd be interested in upgrading.

OK, give me the real story. I see 100's of posts on here talking about which is better, brighter, true plug&play, etc. so what's the deal? Are Lux the best, or is something really out there that's better? And if Lux is the best...5K or 6.5K?
