Post Angel eyes

Been using lights from Strahl and have been thrilled. Not running too hot. Occasional fault code every few weeks. Couldn't care less. Love the white halos

Ordered the Phillips 5000k diamond vision. Will post pics.

From your picture , both inner and outer ring both look bright. I have been trying many different bulbs, only the inner ring will lights up bright. I have a 2011 bmw 740i but yours looks amazing, does the Nokya H8 opens up like a V shape when you put it in ?

Ya think? I have scoured the other threads and have mostly heard good things. Can you elaborate a bit on what problems I may experience. Still have the weekend to change my mind I guess. Thanks!
