Aftermarket Lighting/Angel Eyes

I ran a 92 Spec Miata at this year's 25 Hours of Thunderhill. The aftermarket lighting we ran was a light bar with (4) H9 Bulb HID lights, Hella housings, all from our UM*NITZA who specialize in automotive lighting - whether you're looking to put HIDs on your car, Angel Eyes, or any lighting needs, their service and help is excelent.

Matt at umnitza was very helpful, as for the product themselves the lights worked flawlessly, Lasting a 25 hour race is a difficult thing to do for anything let alone working flawlessly with absolutely no issues with burning out bulbs, cracking housings, or failing ballasts. Each light worked throughout the night and are work as well after the race as they did before the race started. The housings were fully exposed to the weather and even running with debris, rocks, dirt, and weather in the 30's, never had failure. Our lighting was commented on by many people on how impressive the package was, running 4 H9 HID lights, HELLA housings and the fact that none of them failed is really impressive.

Racing is the place for testing and the reason products become better. Umnitza's products and service are great. My friends and I have BMW M3's with Umnitza lighting on them and I thought they were great lighting systems, but after punishing the lights for myself during a 25 hour race, it really shows the quality and durability of their products.

If anyone has any aftermarket lighting needs, I would definatly check them out: www.umnitza.com
