Best Angel Eye upgread?

I would like to find out which ones you like best, im NOT in need of Adjustable ones and really dont want to pay alot (no more then $180 for sure).

I see the Trinity Autosport 20W LED Angel Eyes are $179 with lifetime warranty, im just want good quality that will last and are bright at a good price without error probs.

Thanks

LUX V3 used. Or man up and pay $249 for the V4. You're driving an M dude, no need to cheap out.

BTW, stay away from every other brand unless it is a full replacement solution such as OSS etc.

BMW fanatic is right. It's either Lux or OSS. If you don't want to do either I guess you gotta go home :/

I hear ya, didn't mean to offend you by the way.. LUX V3 brand new was $245 so only $4 more and you get the latest version which I've seen is much more than just adjustable but a brighter output also.

If you want to be super cheap, you can't beat GP thunder bulb swap for the money.

Agree about the Alpine HIDs! Brighter and relatively cheaper option. Only issue is outer rings aren't quite as bright as inner rings, but I still prefer over lux/aib, etc.
If many was no object though, OSS or similar is unbeatable.

http://luxangeleyes.com/products/lux-h8-v4 That is the direct link to the LUX H8 V4 lights. These are by far the brightest on the market to date and as well they dont dim, which most all of the other brands out there do.

LUX already posted their link above me, as far as OSS goes I believe you have to contact 'Luis@OSS', you will find him more on the E90post side. Hope this all helps and good luck!

I went with the oss style with full black out, but did it myself. Bought the Orion V4 from Umnitza and they look amazing. Only problem is that I get the drl error light, think I wired them incorrectly. Anyone have any ideas?

I cant believe how many ppl love the lux. You cant even see them in the day time and its basically the inside ring only. Everytime i see one on the street it looks horrible lol.

Jdm yellow baby.

I have a set of hardly used LUX v4s that I would be willing to part with. I still have the original box. They work fine and look excellent. PM me if interested.

I don't think you have seen the LUX v4. They are much brighter in daylight and very even between the inner and outer rings.

I guess but most of the people i see on the road its either a one ring brighty or barely visible. I just did a $25 piaa yellow job and imo it looks much more aggressive.

Ill let the 335i keep the led look lol.
