For those of you who own a BMW, you may wonder why when you replace your OEM turn signal bulbs with LED’s, the outer rings do not light up as evenly as the inner rings. This is a result of the design of the housing itself and not the bulb. Both the outer and inner rings receive light from the same source, but the only difference is that the outer ring’s light has to travel a much further distance compared to the inner rings. LED’s are brighter and more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs, but the only downside is that LED lights do not project their light as far as incandescent bulbs do. This is the reason why the OEM bulb can light up the outer rings much more evenly since the light can project further and travel a longer distance.
Our LED angel eye bulbs will provide you a nice upgrade over the color and output in the inner rings. The outer rings will still be lit up, but it may not be as noticeable during broad and direct daylight due to the design of the housing. However at night or on an overcast day, the rings will be very noticeable and be quite a head turner.
This may bring up the question of why do the newer BMW models have amazingly bright LED rings that can be seen during direct sunlight so distinctly; this is due to the design change of the newer headlights. The latest BMW vehicles come with LED-lit angel eyes from factory and each ring is powered by LED(s) instead of using one bulb to light up two rings. Since each ring is individually lit, the light is more focused and concentrated which allows the ring to be lit evenly and with a lot of output.
