Have these since January this year on my x6. Love them, they look great on my car, way better than the OEM bulbs. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Ross is a great guy to deal with.

Hello-

I have just recently installed the Hellst XRT bulbs in my 2011 X6 and I couldnt be happier.

I have attached the before and after photos and difference is clear.

My only trouble was that I have pretty big hands and it took some doing to get my hands in and around the bulbs and housing.....but I got it. Took about 20 minutes total.

Very glad I did it.

Here is feedback from a customer from Australia who recently purchased and installed the Hellst XRT's in his 3 Series Coupe. Note his comments on "no flickering" as this is common with the LUX products and check out the before and after photo showing the difference between stock halogens and the Hellst XRT.

At $145/set, these are the best value on the market for premium BMW LED lighting. Order yours at www.bimmereyes.com

Hey Ross,

Great news! I managed to replace the bulbs this morning, the headlight housing is much smaller than it looked on the pictures and videos! gosh they are right when they said you'll need a small hand LOL. Even pulling the bulbs out was a challenge for my big hands...

Very happy with the upgrade! I haven't had so much fun working on a car since I had my skyline 3 years ago! I've attached a couple of before / after pics, looks like there's plenty of room in the housing for the ballast/resistor.

The new Hellst LED has a good startup and shutdown look with the right dimming, I was worried that it might flicker or give a sudden on and off look but nope, it comes up nicely and dimms before it shut down. Although the picture shows some light bleeding but in real life you can see the 4 rings individually so it's really good.

Thanks again for all the pre-sales help and fast shipping, feel free to post this in the forums

From a happy customer,

Martin @ Sydney Australia.

Got mine the other week for the M3, they look great! Shipping was fast and packaging was really nice too...I only wish BMW had made it a bit easier to get in there to install the bulbs hahaha!
