Default LUX angel eyes

My set of lux angel eyes finally arrived from the states today and I fitted them on, only took few mins. Love the result and the look of these compared to oem.

Let me know what you think

I bought after market LED angel eyes too, like said above my outer ring is also dull. Seems to be a common problem.

Cost me around 175. They are apparently the best you can buy and don't generate error codes (touch wood)

just to be correct, are these just bulbs? if so, they seem quite expensive to me..
I bought the CA Automotive ones for 195, they are the HID ones.. and because of this (HID) the outer rings are just as bright.. only thing is takes time to fit.. will post up some pics soon..

Are these better than the OSS Designs angel eye?

They say the OSS ones need the whole headlamp to be removed and sent away lol but they have the best look.

Are the LUX ones the best at the moment?

Cheers.

Do you know how long the LUX bulbs last? Quite reliable?
