With an eyeball comparison during the day and night... are they brighter? No, at least not significantly so as to be outstanding. Are they of a better, or cleaner color? Well, see for yourself and judge (same photo, just cropped). Is it worth $100 or so premium over eBay specials?

NB: Excuse the somewhat dirty, streaked headlamp.

Thanks for posting this Bro.... just another example of Umnitza's massively inflated prices. Same product, but significantly higher prices...*thmbsdwn*

plus their customer service sucks... I've had more orders wrong than I've had right. Even when placing them on the phone and double checking everything.

i do have to agree that their product is the best out there. with our weather conditions id be looking at longevity vs. brightness.

not a fan of the bluish angel eyes, I prefer the OEM yellowy look.

Yep. I may revert.

Service wasn't bad. "Lost" the first one, shipped another promptly. Ordered M-Tech front/rear... being received today. Call them few times and quite responsive.

I didn't post it to knock them, but still their product is better looking than the eBay variety...

To clarify...

UMNITZA on the LEFT
eBay stuff on the RIGHT

Umnitza is cleaner, and more subtle looking...where as the ebay ones are just too bright.

will prolly never consider angel eyes as they are ugly. is anything, stay with the yellow look
the umnitza look like they are two different thing. one umnitza is white and the other is slightly purplish lol

Ugly?

I think they look pretty good, ON BMWs

As far as umnitza, I have their AE and I'm happy both with the product and them as a company. I always get reply to my questions fast. shipping is fast, and they always include a few extras (angel eye rings, inverter etc)

guys. the thread i made about this in the FS section doesn't "compare" them.

THEY ARE THE !!!!!EXACT!!!!! same product, just different box.

so you could make a comparison between MyCarr and ebay. Mycarr = decent quality. One ring went out on me. I cried a little.

Keep in mind that same rings with different inverters (in most cases) won't look the same..

And these aren't after market rings folks, these are just the bulbs. This is a facelifted e39 with stock celis.
