You realize this is the section for Cosmetic/Visual Mods, right? Pretty sure nobody discussed HP gains.

Can we get more pics up in here? Not up close, but a little farther away so we can see what it would look like on the street. Day vs. Night?

I really like yellow halos on white and black. Not sold on yellow halos with color cars.

I stupidly ordered the PIAAs on Amazon (I'm really against PIAA, but the color looked nice.) They arrive tomorrow and I'll try to capture some images once installed.

I received my Piaa Ion Yellow on Christmas from eBay. It is really hard to capture a picture that can represent its true color.

If you do coding and keep the intensity of the Angel Eyes while the Xenon is on, it looks amazing.

I received the bulbs Friday night and got them in Saturday morning. I snapped some images in the garage of my condo facility -- it was early morning, hence the lighting hadn't yet turned on. I believe the images (somewhat) accurately reflect the difference between OE and HyberstupidYellow, enjoy.

OE:

Front-end view (the lens was not perfectly perpendicular to the front of the car, and is biased slightly to the OE bulb):

I like it, that's an awesome picture too. Might try the PIAA's when my OEM bulbs burn out.

Unhappy problem the 32W LED angel eyes

I bought a set of H8 32W LED angel eyes, the lamps are great. however, when I installed them on my bmw e92 320i 2009, the outside ring not as bright as the inside, I asked the seller and he can't find the problem. Anyone comment?

That is very common on those type of setup. You can only enjoy them at night. :-/

What coding will do with the AngelEyes is that when you turn on the HID lights, the Angel Eyes will not fade or lower intensity. Therefore you will enjoy the bright yellow with hid.

PIAAs...I've used them for years on my truck. Look good but those damn things burned out in less than two years each time. It's ok for garage queens I guess.

Not meaning to offend anyone, but I put yellow angels eyes in the category of debadging.
