DEPO or Umnitza for E46 headlight?

Hello,

Hope it is not a dumb question but I am a total newbie on this. Which one should I get DEPO or Umnitza if I want to replace my 2002Ci convertible's stock xenon headlight to brighter HIDs with angel eye?

I found this in Ebay which the seller claimed to be manufactured by DEPO.

Thanks.

As far as I know, Umnitza sells DEPO. So it's the same.

By the way,

We sell the exact same setup for CAN$459. Shipping is under CAN$25 and you won't have to pay for duty, PST, brokerage and all the other fees.

Check it out here:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Apexcone, Umnitza, they are all manufactured by DEPO for those companies, the finishing touch is whose name gets engraved on the lens... same exact headlights, just different prices.... My suggestion: just buy real OEM used bixenons off eBay. You'll pay more but you'll have high and low HID and a proper look over the copies.

I saw in some ebay auctions, e.g, this following link, that the angel eye is CCFL.

And compared with some DDE based angel eyes, e.g., Karim's product,

http://www.corner73.com/product_info...roducts_id=207

what is actually the difference?

DDE stands for Daylight Demon Eyes. Just another name for Angle Eyes

All of Corner73's angel eyes are CCFL.
