I don't follow! $125 for just shipping or $125 for the lights....


either way go to www.umnitza.com and get Depos or ZKWs. These two brands Depo (OE cheaper) and ZKWs (OEM BMW not so cheap) are the only and the best-est glass covered projectors lights for replacing and modding stock!

Anything else may fade, crack, leak, fog up, burn your wires, blow your fuze!

So becareful!!!!

$125 for lights shipped to my house!!! He says they have been on his M3, and they are OEM, he just upgraded, and I can not afford $600 just for lights, my wife would kick my ass!!! But, like you said, I am trying to be careful too, which is why I am posting this here. I found his old plastics on ebay(originals), and he said he has these too, he has very good feedback like 99.8 and has sold like 500 things, so i have to assume ny that, he is honest. Just wanting some reassurances!

If I was in your position I would jump on it. My headlights are foggy as all hell and I can't afford $600 lights either.

I doubt that...but maybe he's not sure either cause he sounds honest...I have never heard of DJ Auto brand....and I never heard ZKW had a division that manufactured their products for 1/5th cheaper....

be careful...but that is still a good price at $125. but IMO I would get Depos for like 179$ off Umnitza (if they still have that sale) and at least those Depos are warrantied and probably better than DJ Autos.

Lightings are more delicate than buyers and sellers realize. Remember that you are paying for something that is low grade glass and will sit on front of your vehicle that will be moving 50-80 mph 70% of the time on concrete territory w/ debris hitting your car 99% of the time!

Good Luck buddy...

DJ auto = semi crap, about same quality of depo's. I currently have depos and I'm not too thrilled with them but they're good for the price. I just ordered zkw's

DJ autos aren't bad, they are pretty well known throughout the forums. They are a taiwanese manufacturer, ZKW copy.

just out of interest, but has anyone ever considered the "Hella" lights, im in the uk and i've never heard of the brnads that you talk about here, but Hella are all round the world - i got my hella angel eyes for 329 delivered.
Sorry if this is a bit of a hijack but perhaps they could be worth consideration!?
