They seem to keep coming out with new models. What is different about these? Are they brighter or something? I've seen angel eyes on the road I think are TOO bright for my tastes. Manufacturers seem to be going brighter and brighter and flashier and flashier. I may end up going brighter than I previous would have just so my car looks more up to date.

Yeah, I believe they are brighter than the previous version. I think these are as bright as they need to be. They look good during the day & at night.

I know there was a thread on here where a bunch of people noticed that the drivers side ring was not as bright as the passenger side with the previous VXX model (the one with the blue housing). Is the light output even on both sides with this new model?

I just want to know which AEs out there match the hue of the headlights. These look pretty good, but a picture is pretty worthless for determining color match.

This might give you a better idea.

I think these have been out since 2012.
VXX was originally introduced (now the V6) as a 2011 model, and 2 years later we upgraded it.

I know there was a thread on here where a bunch of people noticed that the drivers side ring was not as bright as the passenger side with the previous VXX model (the one with the blue housing). Is the light output even on both sides with this new model?
These don't have any of that issue.

VXX is our "top of the line" product. V6 used to be the VXX, but when we upgraded the modules with higher output, we re-introduced the VXX, and moved the original units (BLUE) down to the V6 and lowered their price.

the Mtech V3 is the same output as the V6, but not as bright as the VXX.

Thanks! The Angels are from umnitza.com the VXX ($~140)

Thanks for the positive comments! :goldcup:

For the E39/E60, you can't have too bright on a drop in, just due to the design of the housing, the brighter the better.

So since I have an '03 I can't ditch the reflectors without getting a whole new assembly. Do you sell a whole assembly that includes these new VXXs?

You can actually get the Projector39 Hella Style with the Orion V2 or V2.5, much better than what you have now.

Look awesome. I'm installing my lights currently, went with the Orion V4, FXR Projector, and clear lenses.
