I've been advised to stay away from them altogether by people who sell them. They burn out the lenses and look bad in a short while. What's wrong with the OEM yellow lenses? I think they're cool.

Do a little searching on the forum and u will find threads with picture comparisons and opinions from the owners. I'd post links but the iPhone app is pretty limited in capabilities.

Hint: there's a search option on the right of the screen above the thread listings... Use this!

it's either LUX or AiB. i chose LUX because of the positive results from those in my area that i could see in person.

LUX AEs are pretty bright in daylight. they have a whiter/higher color temperature to them than OEM AE bulbs; i would describe it as icey white/blue/purple. the same bluish ting you get with HIDs.

as for uniformity, i think the design limitation is the OEM AE glass tubes, not the LEDs. i'm sure with a little bit more tweaking, one could design an AE LED bulb that could be even more uniform than LUX, but for the most part i would consider the design fairly clean and OEM looking.

You're talking about hid kits
Not LED

I have the AiB v3.0. They're only a little brighter than stock but have a nice cool white colour.

[ponders over why people even debate such subjective topics as which is better, etc.]

[WARNING - THE COMMENTS IN THIS POST ARE ENTIRELY SUBJECTIVE. THEY ARE IN NO MEANS THE THOUGHTS OR OPINIONS OF THE POSTER..[SCRATCHES HEAD...]

Suggests we change topic to "Angel Eyes - HID or LED." If you want the absolute brightest avaialble, go with HID, otherwise, buy AiBs or LUXs...both are LED and comporable to one another, just not as bright as a HID halo kit, or even a custom LED halo kit, which is a close second to the HID; may even be more money.

So, to answer your subjective questions, here goes:

Question 1: can anyone tell me witch brand of angeleyes is the best? i need the brightest one!

Answer: No one but each of the manufacturers can tell you "which brand of angeleyes is the best." All will claim their own product. If by "best"," you mean brightness, then see my comment about HIDs vs. LEDs above.

Question 2: I`ve been searching on internet, and i found Angel iBright V4.0 and Lux H8 V3. how are them? are they the best on the market?

Answer: They are both good in terms of quality and light output for what they are. My opinion, supported by facts from numerous consumers of each product. As for being the "best on the market," not sure as I have yet to see a comparison test short of consumer feedback. "they are both expensive, $279.00 and 245.00!~," sure, compared to buying a holegen replacement buld, but not compared to a HID kit or custom LED kit.

Conclusion: If you are worried about $279 being expensive, then what you want is not the brightest on the market. What you want is the brightest for no more than $279, which would, again, my opinion, would be the AiBs or LUX.

[THREAD CLOSED]

[P.S. NOT TRYING TO BE A DONG, JUST NEED TO AND , THEN READ IT AGAIN BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN DISCUSSED, PONDERED, ARGUED, TO THE 9TH DEGREE.]

[P.S.S. GOOD LUCK]
