Cree 20w LEDs or Lux V4?

Money aside, what's the way to go? Brightest? I've read a lot on here about the Lux but then the 20w LEDs could pump out more.

Pics of both? Day and night time would be awesome. Personal preferences?

Thanks ahead of time! Gotta get rid of the yellow...

Guess there's also a 40w GP thunder LED too.

LUX, way satisfied with brightness.

They have a good balance. Remember, the inner angel eye is not crisp (light flooded though the inner lens) if the bulb is too bright. LUX is right on the edge of this limit for me

That's a great point. I've noticed this before. Kinda the crap part about the way these angels eyes are setup. May do a little test to see what the good options are. Might spend some money to compare brands and brightness.
