Umnitza LED Tails

Has anyone purchased these? If so, how are they? Pros/Cons?

Any pictures on E46 coupes?

I have seen these on 3 different cars in the last week or so around here. They look great! I think they were stock though.

They are marginally fractionally not as bright - you couldn't tell unless they were side by side and even then you'd be hard pressed to guess.

Also, the OEMs require a new LCM, reflash, and have that adaptive braking.

Our lights are designed to have all the brakes lights illuminate as soon as they are turned on.

Is there an LED bulb in every position on the tail lights are in the OEMs? I heard something about these missing a bulb.

Could you provide us with the picture of the back side? Does it have a cover or can you see the resistor bolted on? Thanks.
