Angel eye problems?

I bought my car with aftermarket angel eyes already installed. In the daytime you can't even tell they are on. Should I just get lux? I'm really wanting to go back to OEM yellow color. Anyone know part numbers?

Thanks

Lux isn't that great in daytime either. If you want to go oem best bet is to pick them up from someone who upgraded.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't OEM just a bulb?

Yes one bulb per headlight.

OP, you'd rather go back to an outdated yellow corona? most guys go with OSS, or Lux or something.

Due to how the AE rings are designed, they won't be as bright as LEDs in any case. I believe the best you can get to a more uniform color is to go with LUX. They are expensive for a bulb, but I've had mine for three years now and I think they're awesome.

If you want the amber back you could go with OEM, but be aware LUX also sells amber bulbs too

I just had to replace the H8 bulb. You can get them at Autozone for 15 bucks a pop.

I replaced mine with lux... I can't imagine going back to OE yellow, it looks so dated. I think it looks 10000000x time better with the lux upgrade

I bought LED 120v, error free, XTEx12 chips, 1250 lumens, 6000 kelvin...and they are really good. The only problem is that the intensity of the light from halo to halo is not uniform. Also someone told me about an Osram conversion kit, Xenarc. I still have not tried it yet but it looked really good when I checked the specs. Same as the one that comes with the X5s.
