Going to contact Lux about it. Looks like it is having some problems... no bulb out warning on the dash, it just flickers a lot and never powers up on one side. For now, back to stock bulbs.
What was the result of this? Did Lux fix it?

It was a bad capacitor. Lux replaced the faulty unit and it has been fine since.

Patient man. I got home from work and didn't even take off my uniform off before tearing open that box and popping my hood.

I feel sorry for you big handed bastards on the install.

I've done it 4 times already... the install is not so bad if you drop it in with the tip facing upward and fish the tip into the hole first. Don't try to go directly in from on top. But yes, the space is quite small...

Just ordered my 5000k lights. Looking forward to it as I hate the yellow angel eyes. I hope Canada Customs doesn't hold on to them for too long on their trip to
Toronto.

I have it on my car at the beginning of this thread. I think some of the other people will post up as they get them.

It basically looks white without the blue tint. A OEM type look that doesn't standing out. A good option if you want halos that are brighter and whiter than the stock halogen halo without looking aftermarket.

Here we go, a pretty good depiction of the color... Straight up white.

Am I too late for the GB?!?

I would like the 5000k kit. I navigated your site but cannot find an option for the 5000k kit, only 6500k.
