This product ... http://www.umnitza.com/product_info.php?products_id=145

I'm confused as to what exactly that is. Is it the glass headlights? Is it the entire headlight enclosure including bulbs? Is it is, why is it so cheap and is that price for 1 headlight or both?

Thank You.

sounds like a full kit to me.

from site
* Each headlight will come with our new Vizu™ 1 year warranty H1 bulbs in both low and high beams.
* Each headlight will have a value-priced plug and play connector.
* Each set of headlights will have StonGard/Xpel protective film.
* Each set of headlights is ready for shipping.

Depo i think is a cheaper brand. ZWK is better/oem... if i remember right

Alright awesome. You are right. Thank you very much. I really want Euro Ellipsoids, just can't exactly break the bank but I obviously want a quality product.

Anyone have any experience with DEPO? Good or bad.

Depo are on the more of the bad side IMO then the good side. because they tend to leak and cause problems. and they arent as clear as OEM

Yeah I hear this alot!!!


I'm saving for the ZKWs....should get them by X-mas.
I would say save for the ZKW. Cause if the DEPOs mess up you'll have to pay to replace them cause you can't really fix them...right?

used I believe BIGRED318 has them on his ride. He gave me advice on them a while back before I decided not to buy them . Most heads in here either got ZKWs or OEMs

Email him or just ask the Umnitza folks,
they're pretty honest with what they sell.

Also umnitza (and autowerks too) always got those DEPOS on sale like that so don't feel you have to rush to get them, they'll still be there for $179 when we're eating turkey in November!

i have mine coming this week. I know lots of guys with them on their rides. Some leak and you get moisture, but all you have to do is take it apart, no biggy. I would defintly reccomend them, being a hell of a lot cheap than zkws. I think you should get the DDEs with them, 369 for the depo w/dde. Umnitza is the best guy to go to, that is the whole kit, includes the bulbs and pnp adaptor so all you have to do is plug them in and ur set. Matt is a great guy and if you have ANY problems he will help, and replace unit if needed.

DEPOs are not bad. Rather, they aren't AS GOOD as ZKW. The Depos has slightly lower optcially quality in the lense, and the housings can fog in severe humidity. I have Depos, with HID, and have not have any problem with anything melting as some like to claim, and they project the light far better than the OE NA spec. If you absolutely cannot afford ZKWs and don't mind the occasional fog up (which does not really affect light output noticeably, just cosmetically looks bad) then there is nothing wrong with Depos.
