I bought a set of the LUX H8 V3 Angel Eye bulbs (6500K) for my 2012 BMW X1, and they are excellent quality and produce a nice bright output. Installation was relatively easy too.

They are also, however, a very poor colour match to the xenon headlights, which are a noticeably warmer white than the rings. Therefore, I would not recommend the LUX H8 V3 Angel Eyes if your are interested in achieving the perfect colour match to your headlights, as I am.

My guess is that most BMW models having this generation of xenon headlight units will experience the same issue. Maybe you will have better luck with the new 5000K bulbs.

Cheers!
