It's respectful to ask for information.
It's disrespectful to post pictures of objects that have nothing to do with tail lights on a thread. It's that simple. No one objects to the female form, but we're not selling females.

But I notice you still haven't answered a question that has been asked many times of you... is one side of the tail light more concave than the other as it appears to be from the numerous pictures that have been posted?
I too do not like all this negativity floating around. BUT as a potential customer, I think that's a fair question to be asked. WHY is one side of the LED taillights more concave than the other? Simple question.This is nothing negative against Umnitza...this should also be asked to Autowerks representatives. We all want to know. If this is the design, then that's just what they'll look like. We have to live with it, if we want the LED taillights. We just want an answer.

I would agree if Autowerks posted that picture in your thread of the LED TAILS FOR SEDAN. But if its their Thread I dont see anything wrong with it.
Its all marketing strategies..And a little bit of somehing good after all this drama to cool things a little bit dont you think?
Let's stop all this and keep questions and comments for the LEDS ONLY.

Ok, this is a joke right?!? Nothing to do with tail lights? Maybe you missed the fact that the picture I posted WAS of the tail lights.

I suppose this picture from your website is also disrespectful?

That's the point.
No one cares if you post 8000 pictures. None of the people that support us have been on any of the other's thread. None.

But we have all sorts of them here, posting thing, posting that, it's not cool. PERIOD.

And so the question still remains unanswered. For the record, I don't support ANY vendor. I'm just a potential customer asking a valid question about a product. I posted that particular picture because I felt it portrayed what I was referring to (i.e. the curve of the outer rings) very well. It wasn't meant as a snipe at you, your company or anybody else. If you took offense or feel direspected I sincerely apologize. I certainly didn't mean for that to happen. Having said that, I do think it's rather telling that you spend all this time defending your position and yet you won't answer a very simple question.

Thank you. I am not trying to bash your product, it just looks that way in pictures. I would ask all other vendors selling this product the same question...so nothing personal against Umnitza.

Thanks for the pics. They confirm that the right side of the tails is considerably more curved than the left.

I'm going to wait till the manufactures make something that actually looks OEM.

I don't even know how to respond to this.

They are exactly the same. Where you get that they are different is confusing.
