What is ZKW's website, I hear everyone talking about how great they are. Are they a full kit or do you need to buy brackets or fabricate? Do they come with the bulbs, if not, what does everyone recommend?

Thanks in advance,

Nick

I dont think you can get them from their website.
Umnitza has them and I think m3motorwerkes has them. It's a replacement for the entire US headlight assembly.
I think there's a PnP adapter for like 30$ that allows you to just plug them right into the regular wiring harness, but I'm not sure if that's if you got the DDE (angel eyes) or not.
Either way, you want a ZKW elipsoid projector headlight. HID retrofit with the ZKW's would be even better. Angel eyes are cosmetic, mainly (partialy an other car visability factor)

Just for the elipsoid headlights, it's like $350-$400.

thanks for the info, I probably wouldn't go HID unless it was a present from my parents or something (too much $$$ for me!)

DAMN! i just checked them out and their package for $599 looks great, it would probably be worth it to go with name brand, and it has a 5 year warranty!

I bought mine from umnitza.com. Those guys are great!

m3motorwerks also sells them but they actually get theirs from umnitza.

The system is well worth the money, as others on this forum have had troubles with lesser systems...

BTW, ZKW does have a website, but it is in German and they don't sell direct...

You dont have to get angel eyes, it's like, 150$ cheeper jsut to get the ZKW's...
Umnitza's ZKW with PnP

I personally don't care about the angels, I want the ZKW's because they are glass and project the light so much better than the reflectors we have now. If you like them, it's better to buy them while they are already installed because that can be a pain I believe.
