Predator Chromium vs. Titanium Edition: Why we chose to only sell one
I am often asked "Why did you guys switch from Titanium Edition to Predator Chromium? Where the heck did Predator Chromium come from?"
Well, (and I'm sure other people in the business will be unhappy about this) I'm going to speak my mind and tell you all my somewhat professional opinion.
Predator Chromium touts the following features over Titanium Edition
-Less ring failures
-Better aesthetics with thinner rings and nicer notches... which leads me to...
-Better light dispersion... no "dead spots"
-Better color - no 8000K ugliness, just pure 6000K color
-**LESS BULKY**... therefore...
-MUCH EASIER to install... as well as...
-No chance of breaking with autoleveling - they are thinner
-Better CLIPS! Pressure fit, only one notch necessary... easier to put on...
-Lighter - less chance of rocking around and breaking
-**BETTER LIGHT DISPERSION!** Because of the TRUE chromed backing
-Better wiring, cleaner, more predictable
-Rings can be removed and replaced - no need for a whole new ring if something goes wrong
-Clips can be removed - so we stock one kit for E36, E38, E39, etc etc... very handy
My problems with Titanium Edition are as follows:
-**Light dispersion is TERRIBLE**
-**Rings are bulky**
-Hard to install because of bulkiness
-Heavy, they swing around
-The "titanium" backing is just spraypainted silver... and it peels off...
-The rings are glued to the back. It's messy. And if one breaks, it doesn't come off. And then you can't swap colors
-The clips are crap. Sorry, but they are. Too bulky, again.
And there you have it. And now for the pics...
Chromium looks great, huh?
But look at these attachments of Titanium... don't look too full, do they?
And look at the NICE backings on the chromium?
Anyways, I don't mean to slanderize, but I had to speak my mind. I'm tired of people asking why I don't carry the "nice" demon eyes...
