Anyone tried these angel eyes?

I am looking at these two types.

One is very cheap and I assume it won't last that long.
Did anyone have experience with iJDMtoy one?

I wouldn't put the first link in your car, the MTECs are probably okay .Check out LUX, they are a tried and true brand and are the brightest available LED H8 application on the market today.

I have the MTECs and they are whiter and brighter than OEM. Have had them about 8 months but the car is only driven occasionally so I can't vouch for how long they will last.

I'm ordering MTEC at the moment. I Have some deep blue police colored angel eyes installed, and now since I have a fixing ticket, I needto change it to white one. I think MTEC is best as for quality/price.

There is no High Tech involved in the process of producing that bulbs, thus they shouldn't cost much. MTEC probably just use a fair price tag.

For instance, HDMI cables are all the same, however manufacturers have a huge difference in pricing, which they say is caused by adding golden wires, or having new technology that reduces interfering effect. It's not truth - they all are the SAME in a nutshell.

And now I see why the Mtec's are so cheap... the are not LED's.
But they claim to be brighter than most LED's?
The pic they posted there of the white Z with the Mtecs looks a bit
dissapointing i.m.o.
Anyone he who has the Mtecs who can post a picture here of the result?
thx.

I believe that the LUX H8 V3 angel eyes should fit the Z4's. Does anyone want to be a tester for me? If so send me a PM Please!

Edit - i have plenty of people interested in testing them. Thank you all for your responses.
