Angel Eyes - 10W Upgrade

On my M6 I had upgraded my angel eyes to a 5W set-up, spent more money and wasn't really please with the results. So I took info I learned from the M6 forum wherein several members tried the following from ebay:

2 X 10WATTS high power for each LED
Genuine CREE R4 SMD LED chip


$58.95 I'm very happy with the results! Not very good photos since I was doing it in the daytime, but you can see the color difference before and after. They match very well with the headlights. Money well spent.

Do you have the links for this upgrade. I really want to do it to mine and don't want to pay $250 from some of these sites.

It was via eBay. Would be an old link now. There are many options out there now similar or even more wattage.

I actually like a true amber/yellow, so I went back to a traditional bulb with Nokia 2500k 35W. True amber, not bright enough but just a little different. I liked the amber on my M6 vert, so I went with the same look. Trying to get the bright, super-white like the new LEDs will never work...
