Looks great! I just ordered them. If I don't like the brightness, I'll just switch them back to stock.

H3 is for the center light when you turn the wheels. H8 is for the rings

I too went with 7500k GP thunders. The best $17 ever spent. I was about to order Lux AEs glad I didn't. Couldn't be happier with the GPs.

What do you have to do to get these coded brighter? Apologies if this is a trivial question....

Off White

Got my GP Thunder V2 7500k from Ebay seller premiertek_com http://www.ebay.ca/usr/premiertek_com. Box seemed like it was opened as the sticker that holds the box together was slightly peeled.

After installing the unit, the bulbs were certainly not "Super White". I would call them "Off White". The pictures actually make them look "BETTER" than they actually are in real life.

With HIDs on:


With HIDs off:


If you don't care about color matching, I guess these are adequate as a temporary replacement. The bulbs are also somewhat dim especially when the main HIDs are on.
