Thanks for all the help guys, i know theres a difference between the ZKW's and the knockoff's, i've seen the downside to em in person (sorry R_JAY). Its just that like R_JAY said, if i install HID's and change around all the wiring they should be good enough!

Guess i'll stick it out a bit longer and go for the ZKW's............ now some questions for those, do they ALL have the SMILEY's on them?

And lastly, has anyone done the NON-PLUG n PLAY install of the zkw's!?
I'm ok when it comes to fixin things, but i HATEEEEE wiring, me and wires just don't see eye to eye!

The half circle of ribbed glass over the low beam ellipsoid?
I believe both the ZKW's and the Bosch have them.

The worst thing to do is be cheap when modding a car. The part will either have a wardrobe malfunction, or it will just look crappy. Seriously, just save up the money, or dont buy them at all.

SUREEEEEEE IT WAS JON!!

MK, i know what your saying, i've told myself that sooo many times, as i have purchased some SHITTTY aftermarket parts before, and done nothing but regret it, just sometimes its soooo tempting cause its HALF the cost!

Don't worry ZKW's for me!
So what about the NON-PLUG N PLAY install, anyone done it before?!
MK, were your ellipsoids plug n play, cause i remember you telling me you installed them yourself!

If you want plug'n play buy the Plug n play connector, othewise you will need to splice and solder the wires.

go to www.umnitza.com

I believe with plug and play and ellipsoids it's 400$ US.

Mine aren't plug and play, it's easy, don't worry.

PM when you get the lights, I still have my instructions somewhere.
