Umnitza, i just checked your link (http://umnitza.com/umnitza-projector...on-p-1099.html).

Is the $299.99 price for only a single projector headlight(one side only) or a pair(both sides)?

Honestly I'm ready to buy but dont know which ones the Orions or the EAS.. Which ever one has the whitest output of course. I looked at Khoalty's and they have really white ones but their price is signifactly lower and their quality looks on parr. Reasons? Can you guys give out a group discount or a decent price for the guys in Canada lol. I live in Toronto so having them shipped here is probably gonna increase the overall price even higher. undecided..

Ready to take pics and show them off too....

Orion Lite is the same as the other rings out there from many vendors under varying names. They are priced low because their quality isn't the best.

The backings are cheap, the clips don't stick, and the LED have a tendency to burn out and need replacement more quickly than Orion V2.

The Orion V2 is the whitest output. Here's a comparison of the Aurora and Orion V2 on the same car:

They will fit your lights, the Orion V2. They will attach to your lights no problem.

Hey everyone I've been a lurker at this forum for a while now, jealous of all of you because I hadn't paid off my car yet and I told myself no spending money on mods until it was paid off. That being said, I am now a full owner and ready to mod!

Angel eyes are one of the first mods I want to get and I was hoping to take advantage of black Friday, however I'm a bit overwhelmed by how much information there is on angel eyes, how much of it seems to be outdated, and how much of it simply doesn't seem to apply to me. I drive an '05 ZHP coupe with xenons and while I've found a plethora of information on pre-facelift coupes, sedans, and cars without xenons I'm a bit stuck on what exactly my options are.

From what I've seen it looks like the best are either the eas auroras or the umnizta orion v2s, and it is possible that I may need a different size of angel eye to fit the xenons. The aurora may or may not come in more than one color, the orions do but they may also be available in one multi-color option, and each one may or may not be able to be run at different power levels to change their brightness. Unfortunately each of the vendors' websites don't answer my questions, can anyone straighten these out for me? Thanks!

It's common for a lot of data to be outdated. There are some comparisons out there that still compare products from 2006, in an effort to make their products look better in side by side tests. Orion V2 has been out since 2008, entering it's 3rd year of production with no equals (yes, marketing hyperbole).

From what I've seen it looks like the best are either the eas auroras or the umnizta orion v2s, and it is possible that I may need a different size of angel eye to fit the xenons. The aurora may or may not come in more than one color, the orions do but they may also be available in one multi-color option, and each one may or may not be able to be run at different power levels to change their brightness. Unfortunately each of the vendors' websites don't answer my questions, can anyone straighten these out for me? Thanks!
Orion V2 comes in many colors, however, we've slowly started seeing a purchasing trend, most people who want colors are getting the multi-color sets which aren't that much more expensive than the regular "COLOR" based Orion V2s, while the rest of the people that want to stay stock stay with the 6000K.

Here's the same photo we have compared of CURRENT products on the market:

here is Aurora (Left) and Orion Lite (right):

Thanks for the response, I've looked at your site and the multi-color option is not listed under the colors, you say that it is not much more expensive but what is the price? Does the multi-color option include 4300k, 6000k, and everything in between? The real reason I was looking for multi-color was to possibly be able to tune the color to something in between these (it may just be my screen or the pictures but 6000k looks a bit too blue and 4300k looks a bit too yellow, I also haven't decided which I like better). My car is also not listed under the car models, is this product even available for a facelift coupe with xenons?

You cannot however tune colors. And yes, we do have a multi-color option for your car, it's simply not listed yet, but just put your car info in the comments and we'll send you the correct one.
