Looking for LUX

Hello folks,

I'm seriously thinking about buying some LUX halo bulb replacements. I'd like to see them in person first. Anybody here in the greater Tacoma, Olympia or Seattle area with those bulbs installed?

I'm a fan of AIB. I had LUX on my M3. Got rid of them, I like AIBs way better.

These differing opinions are exactly why I started this thread. I'd like to see them for myself first :-)

Why?
LUX has a green hue. The AIB is crisp white with a purple hue. I started with AIB, replaced with LUX and with AIB again.

I ordered the LUX H8 6500 pure white. There is a little blue, depending on the angle. My car is Alpine white and the green comes out. As far as AIBs, there crisp white with purple hue is so clean looking with my white. Just my opinion.

LUX are the way to go - They look great & I have yet to find anything better for the price. Too many issues with AIB & their lousy customer service - ..There's a reason why LUX continue to sell out. Even the used ones sell for $200.

Get the Lux, I have a 2011/Alpine white, there is NO green at all , IMO they are perfect, and not over the top where every oncoming driver flashes you because they think you have your high beams on.

Appreciate the review!

FYI: Customer service was a bit lousy with 3.0 kits, we have since taken over all AIB machining/production/assembly as well as customer service since release of the 4.0 kits.

This keeps kits readily available and ready to go when you are, no waiting.
