E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

dim led angel eyes

I just purchased a set of LEDs for the angel eyes. I got them from ebay, listed as 20W CREE H8 LED Angel Eyes BMW. I installed on side and they kind of looked not as bright as I had hoped. I emailed the guy and he replied:

'on the new model, bmw set running light in different low mode therefore sometime the LED will not as bright even if you put on other H8. we do accept return so you can still return back to us. thanks'

I will return these but I was wondering if anyone has better experience with other lights. I read more about weisslicht and others, but haven't seen many convincing pictures that are convincing enough to switch. Also, is there a problem with the 'new model' as the ebay seller described?

You better off go with LUX they seem to perform much better than other brand.

does anyone have a comparison of the LUX and stock lights on an E82/88? I am just not so sure about how much brighter they are going to be.
