Review of LED angel eye replacement bulbs from EBAY

I purchased this kit on ebay based on his high amount of positive feedback. $49 bucks compared to Umnitza who wants $150 dollars. No error codes everything works great. really easy install took like 5 minutes for both sides.

Overall the kit is great. I know the new 7 series will have the LCI led lights that will be much brighter. I was just tired of the yellow color. So far so good. No error codes and I like the color. If you want a brighter output then stock I would probably recommend the HID version upgrade.

For me I really was not too concerned with the brightness output. I wanted something like stock brightness but more blue or white in color. The led upgrade gives the angel eyes a purplish blue hue which i like.

Here are some reference pictures.

Stock VS. LED

You can see how the stock bulbs are more of a yellowish tint, while the leds are more white



Here is an angle shot of the stock yellow bulbs

I hope that gives you guys a better idea of what to expect with the direct led replacements.

better picture to capture the color of the angel eyes.

These lights are great. There are NO instructions provided but its really simple to install. I have purchased replacement bulbs from several websites and none of them compare to these. Its so refreshing to have gotten rid of the yellow angel eye look.
