Just ordered my H8

I just ordered the H8 from Canada, for my e93 m3. What should i be expecting, i am just super excited haha. Is it as bright as the 2013 models of the bmws? Also is the installation easy.

What are you talking about? You just ordered a H8 bulb? You ordered LUX, AngelIbright? GP Thunder?

Be more specific...

Likely, it will not be. Only two different offerings come close...HID and replacement rings.

The Lux V3 looks great but in no way are they as bright.

The LUX is not as bright as the new halo's in the newer models.

The only plug/play replacement is an HID but they have problems with being so bright that they make the headlights look like blobs and not rings. Replacement rings (OSS for example) is a good solution, but you have send in your headlights (they bake them and take them apart and replace the rings).
