    Been trawling forums and Online stores for days trying to find the best option for white, bright DRL angel eyes - having just come from an F10 with the new angel eye technology I am hating the yellow angels.

    It seems to me that the best options are either:

    A. Spend best part of £200 on Lux H8 V3 LED import from the USA (plus quite possible customs import duty and VAT)

    Or

    B. Do a standard halogen swap to something like MTec H8 super White or cosmic blue

    Though, what do you think about something like this:

    Whilst these sorts of bulbs, when used in fog or head lights, are not road-legal I see no reason they would not be legal or styling/DRL use...

    Those SMD LED H8 bulbs would not be as bright as halogen h8 bulbs hence they're not legal for fog or low beam use. You may get away for using it as DRL however You should check if you need canbus/error free LED bulbs for DRL setup.

    Most people here use MTEC super White or cosmic blue halogen bulbs as it's less hassle and gives good result.

    Yeah, I think they are in Swinton - a few miles away. Thinking about getting the H8 super whites for the angels and H3 if they make them, for the adaptive cornering lights.

    i've just had to order another set of mtec superwhite Fog bulbs....
    when i took one out they are H11's... not the H8's i got....
    got a set of H8 superwhite and h8 cosmos blue left over now...

    done the H7 main and dipped bulbs, plus ice blue 5w5 sidelights.
    it was a bit fiddly as i don't have small hands...but they look much better now

    Perhaps you want to sell on the mtec H8 super whites?

    fitted the mtec H7 55w superwhites today,
    they are a lot crisper and whiter than the oem halogens, so i'm very happy with them

    took them out for a spin down some dark country lanes, and seem at least as bright if not brighter than the old oem bulbs, and i much prefer the whiter light.
    should have done comparison pics but there are plenty on the web.
    just got to wait for the 55w H11's for the fog lights to show up...

    dipped
