Cool

I have to say that I am a revived Umnitza fan after getting my new set and installing them today. I was told by so many people that Umnitza has the best looking lights and, after installing them today and getting them to work, I must say THEY ARE F*CKING INCREDIBLE!!!! I have to admit I had HIGH EXPECTATIONS for these lights, but when it was finished being installed, I was truly amazed. I backed off away from the lights and simply stared at the headlights for about 15 minutes (yeah I don't have nothing better to do this weekend).. I am now excited as ever to go ride out and show them off.

Umnitza ZKW w. DDE Enhanced Headlites WILL BLOW YOUR MIND WHEN YOU SEE THEM IN PERSON.

If your considering getting headlites, this is the way to go. Make sure you get the DDE ENHANCED, i am not sure about the "PLUS" (im sure they look good) but the ENHANCED SIMPLY LOOK AMAZING.

Note:: sometime this weekend I will take pics of my black bmw with the dde enhanced, im sure it will inspire many to purchase them.

the dde plus uses a bare lighted ring so it's brighter but the enhanced uses a thick ribbed plastic sleeve around the ring so it's not as birght but it's a lot more clean looking

that's the difference for those who didn't know


plus .................................................. .................................................. .............enhanced

My confusion between the two types, Lighting PLUS and ENHANCE, is that ENHANCE seems to be light blue/whitish and the PLUS seems to be a darker neon blue on the umnitza website pictures. Am I seeing two colors or is that a variation of the types?

I plan on getting these ZKWs from umnitza as soon as I get the $$$.

I'm deciding between blue DDE rings w/ a white low beam light or white DDE rings with bluish low beam lights.

I don't know what is better, but I don't want yellow rings, nor the extra bright rings you get with the Lighting PLUS option.

The pic below is an example of what I want.

those are most likely different colors. because the only differenc between the two plus or enhanced is the thick plastic sleeve around the enhanced, there is also dde basic which is like 100 bucks, but i think those are really shitty

those in picture are hid's in ellipsoid projector headlights,

if you want what is in that picture, you should probably get zkw's with dde enhanced, and then you should get some HID"s that would cost a lot though, like what 600 for the headlights and dde, and then another 300 or so for the hid bulbs,

Thanks M3DUDE!

Those HID's are really $39.99 halogen imitations I saw on ebay. B)

Check this link out:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...item=7919043372

or EBAY search: "4750K MTEC 9006 XENON COSMOS BLUE HID BULBS" if the link don't work


I'm not sure how legit the effect will be in the ZKWs ellipsiods but I'm willing to test it out on my E36 if I get the white rings.

What do ya'll think?

actually "Xenon" is a term they now refer to for "color" - why? no one really knows except the average non-car guy gets duped by it.

Basic is essentially like Plus. Minus the wiring hanress and mounting hardware and minus the extended warranty.

i dont know why everyone gets the DDE's; Why not skip the DDE's and get HID for the same price? You are upgrading your lights a lot more if you get HID over DDE.

And it would be about the same price...?

Weird...

Don't do what? Are you refering to my intended Ebay purchase or the Umnitza website?

I'm not even sure what the real $299 HIDs would do for me after I pay 650$ for ZKW/DDE. On my budget, I'm easy pleased wih the basics.

actually, that was NOT the story.

Our LA warehouse never shipped them.

Get the facts straight.

Moreoever, we've continued to work through issues with the starter of the thread and all seems on the right path.
