DDM e36 projectors questions

I got a question, I'm about to buy parts of DDM website, and my question is, am I just buying the Projector ? or the whole headlights here ?
I really don't get it.

You are buying the whole headlight (both sides), with free HID kit.

I love DDM.

ps: go with Depo.

They are all marketed as european projectors because of the E-Code Up-tick ___/___/

The picture he posted is with some shitty angel eyes installed.
This is what they look like installed, without any of that shitty angel eye crap.




BTW: I forgot to remind you to buy Lumix to protect the lens from stone chips.

This light that you have installed, would it perform just as good as the one w/ Angel Eyes, and ___/ ___/ ?

Personally, I like the Angel Eyes look, looks more intimidating and slightly more exciting if you will.

if you end up getting lamin-x don't get the 40mil stuff which is really thick, i picked up some when i ordered my headlights from ddm and I thought it looked like crap when I put it on, probably a 20mil would be much better

DDM only offers the thicker 40mil applications.

And its pretty much invisible, its on my headlights/fogs.

Guys, sorry to steal the thread but I've been looking at Umnitza for ZKW headlights and with the options I chose (Orion V2 LED angel eyes and OEM D2S xenons) the price would go all the way up to US$ 840 before shipping.

In contrast, at DDM, I'm interested in the Depos that T.Dot posted but with DDE Ultra HD LED angel eyes and DDM brand 55w xenons which comes to a total of about US$ 260 before shipping.

The question: are the ZKWs worth the huge investment difference compared to the Depos when it comes to quality of the lenses and beam pattern, cut, uptick, etc... ?? In other words, will I be having headaches with burnt ballasts, less than satisfying beam patterns and moisture if I cheap out and go with the Depos?

Should I just get Depos right now or be patient and save a "BIT" more for the ZKWs?

Thanks

Orion V2 are much better than the Mycarr supplied lights that everyone else uses.


But as for ZKWs they are well worth it if you plan on keeping your car longer than 3 years. Especially in the colder climates where DEPO plastic may become more brittle.
