E39 LED angel eye bulbs

So i have been looking to upgrade my yellow angel eyes. Looking around i found many very cheap led bulbs with horrible reviews. Finally when i checked Umnitza, seems that their bulbs are better quality. Here are my two choices:

1. http://www.umnitza.com/umnitza-ice-v...6prfu9d0aujm36

2. http://www.umnitza.com/umnitza-ice-v...wl-p-6041.html


I am leaning towards the first choice due to the fact that they are almost 50% off.

Does anyone have experience with these products? or does anyone recommend something better?


p.s. i do not know if it matters but my car is a 2001 540i m package


Thanks

Derek

I've heard they are good, but my experience with Umitza is about one of the worst in my life, I'd rather deal with Satan.

Pretty sure the 01-03 5 series lights were the same; even through to the M5.

Are your lights self leveling? What is the reason you want to change out the yellow rings?

I believe they are self leveling and the reason i want to changr the color of the rings is to match my 8000k hids. Also i want to see the rings in the day a bit more

Did you ever come to a conclusion on what to buy? I too am torn between those two and MTEC v3/AiB v4... basically just want whichever works best in the daylight. I find it hard to find any daylight examples on e39's, they all look great at night though.

Is this because of poor service or just bad products in general?

In the daytime they are visible but not that much. At night they match the hids perfectly.

I do not have the link but the sellers name on ebay is bmw_led. They almost have 100% feedback


Hope that helps

Got pix? glad you didn't go with Umnitza, those guys drove me crazy with my rear bumper that took almost 3 months to deliver.
