Does anyone have experience with these lights? I read in the past that these light up the rings evenly due to the way the lights are angled WeissLicht LED Halo Upgrade Kit For E60/E61 - BMW 5 Series and M5 - 2004-2009 From bimmian.com
Great advice ALPINE_M5 - that is really clear. I did think it was likely to do with the ring design but after seeing the angels of other users of the iBright and mtec bulbs i thought maybe its specific to the bulb i purchased as theirs seem to bne more even and visible at all angles etc.It's not the bulb but the actual rings themselves that causes this due to the way the optics are with the rings. You have to remember that the inside rings are where you install your bulb and then the rings are lit from the inside rings to outside rings. You can place a HID 6K light in there and it won't push the light to the outer rings much more than your current bulbs. On the new LCI LED lights and the ORION lights they are LED lights themselves and not rings that light up with a bulb so they will be much brighter and white. Unless you plan on cutting into your headlights the Cree 20W LED type bulbs will be the best we get or as some others suggest with the Halogen Type of Bulbs.
There are LUX/MTECH purchasers who will swear up and down that their brands are the best CREE LEDS on the market and the brightest. The ebay ones that are CREE LED's and even GP Thunder CREE 20/25W LED's are the same with perhaps less design thought into the resistor and bulb carrier but once it is tucked away it is tucked away. Some complain about the Radio Interference with some of the EBAY AE's with the resistors.
So far I haven't gotten any INTERFERENCE with mine. Knock on Wood. I have these in the E70 X5 and the E60 M5 without any problems.
I have the EBAY 20W Cree's and I have now made contact with the people who make the GP Thunder brands who are local to me. They have explained a lot to me about lumens, color, etc. and I got LED turn signals, license plate lights, etc.
I heard about the gp thunder, you're right they are amazing, problem is they burn easily, i would but at least 3 sets (at 8$ each big deal lol) like that you can replace them when they burn and you dont need to code the car or leave the resistors inside the housingI'm running these - 2009 LCI model; they're better than both the 6w and 10w LEDs I tried, without the big resistors clattering around in the lightbox. Whiter than stock, just as visible in any lighting conditions. Only thing the LEDs did better was instant on/off -- these fade in/out like the stockers.

For 8 bucks, you can't go wrong. Try them, see if you like them.
try them and let us know!Does anyone have experience with these lights? I read in the past that these light up the rings evenly due to the way the lights are angled WeissLicht LED Halo Upgrade Kit For E60/E61 - BMW 5 Series and M5 - 2004-2009 From bimmian.com
I tried a similar model on an x6 but with 5 watt cree and same problem inner rings super bright and outter ring super dim. Unless they're extremely bright I don't see how anything should fix the issueI would be curious as the angled approach of the WeissLicht AE lights. I see the conceptual idea behind it. Basically pushing the LEDs and concentrating the light beam towards the rings front end instead of a large disbursement light to fill the rings.
yes unfortunately.That will always be the case for the rings that we have. Unless you can get two separate rings and two separate LEDs to light them. They will be that way. Inner than pushing the light to outers.
