which is better/easy to install LUX H8 or LUX H8 Amber?

The website recommends LUX H8 as the most popular lights, however LUX H8 Amber are advertised as brighter?

What do you guys recommend?

Thanks!

Ok, I did some research (seen photos on their website, sorry about that) and decided will go for LUX H8, unfortunately they are out of stock. Was contemplating earlier to buy them and they were out of stock too. Will wait until they are available.

Was going to buy LUX H8 V3 but they went out of stock and couldn't give me a date. So I went with NSSC H8

SmartBastard - testing lights with a bench power supply and with the car will give you dramatically different results. a lot of brands will dim to about 30% brightness with the headlights are on, such as the one you have in your first and last picture

These are NOT the same as LUX, not even close. They may have copied out design, but the electronics are not the same and they are about 1/3 as bright when you turn on the headlights. Also we still manufacture all the parts yourself domestically and these are Chinese knock-offs

Concur with PapaB - the LUXs I added to my X6 have been the best value of any mod. As a matter of fact, I can't believe I almost ordered a 2013 just to be able to add the $3000 LED lights to the car. These aren't the same, but for less than 10% of the cost of the factory LEDs, I couldn't be happier (especially since I never really get to see them since I'm always the one behind the steering wheel!)

Don't spend a dime buying Chinese junk

Order them anyway! I ordered mine even though it said out of stock and they showed up at my house within 4 days! I was extra surprised! Thanks Lux!
