^ I agree. The one feature that caught my attention is the anti flickering. Not sure it's worth the price of admission though.

Honestly I had to post just to provide fair warning to people. These units aren't going to be very bright. I did a short stint working helping to engineer production cars some time ago and one of my projects was exterior LED lighting.There are relatively few LED manufacturers in the world and the LED units in these bulbs are a dead give away to me because I've seen them used in gauge clusters. These Angel Eyes aren't going to be bright enough to give a satisfactory result, and you can even tell from the photo. You can buy Angel Eyes with similar output from most ebay vendors. I also suspect the "anti-flickering system" is probably marketing speak for a capacitor. Assuming there are 5 LED units per bulb, these have approximately 1/4th the lumen output of the Angel iBright bulbs or the Lux H8 bulbs. These would be as bright as RD Angel Eyes, which run $60.

The lack of an external heat sink or power supply is a result of the low output not because these are specially engineered. The thing with angel eyes is that you need a bulb with is almost as bright as a headlight bulb, and you're simply not going to get that without a big heatsink and a big power supply.

These are actually the most expensive Angel Eyes I've seen and considering they're as bright as an entry level bulb, they don't offer a good price to performance ratio.

Hope that helps, sorry IND nothing against you guys you rock, just speaking of the product.
