Angel Eye bulb life

Hello.
I am looking in to getting my angel eyes upgraded with Lux.
Can anyone tell me how long the bulb will last? My stock ones went out once (replaced under warranty). I would hate to spend 200+ for the lights and keep having to replace it...
Any warranty on the bulbs? replacement bulbs available?

Thanks

The LUX 3.0's, which I put on my old 335i 2yrs plus ago, are still going strong.

I imagine there's a variety of factors that impact life besides hours of use.

How have you been? Long time no talk... see you moved on to a M3 as well

We expect these to last a few years but just in case we have a 1-year warranty on these to cover any defects

Good question... Thats why I wont buy them. I'm on my 3rd set of factory ones, luckily covered under warranty. When its up, I'm going to switch them off.
