overall its just personal preference where to buy from...im not hating on ANYONE

like i said i have bought from both EAS and Umnitza...the only reason i said why is yalls price higher because if MYCARR made the angel eyes then prices should be exactly the same..i know that if umnitza is buying from my car and then selling they would have to charge more...my parents have a business i know how it works...

if the lights have same features and both of yall back the product with a lifetime warranty then why sell at different prices....am i wrong? im sure i didnt say anything wrong
Umnitza is a direct distributor of the Predator Orion with Chromium backing.
We innovated this product and have exclusive on it with Chromium backing.
At this time, we have a set price that reflects what we believe is proper in the market as we are not supporting our retailers with raised prices.

You are right; this a terrible picture. That E46 is ugly!!! Not only that but this photo makes the Orion's look ugly; as a matter of fact this is one of the most unflattering pictures of the Orion's that I've seen. Ok, end of my rant.

I guess I'm going to have to check these out in person; other pictures of the Orion's in action look very good. The Orion's on the black ZHP look beautiful. http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...&postcount=143

if you can't afford to spend $10 four times a year to replace the ballast, then maybe you should own a KIA or something. those cars are cheap and relatively economical. *Most* people buy bimmers b/c they love the way they look. I would gladly spend $40/year to have a set of sick looking angel eyes, rather than driving around with a set of cheap-looking LEDS.

Sex Appeal > Cost

I think you have a point.

However, I do agree with the poster, he doesn't need to spend that much on replacement parts. That sounds more like an installer/installation issue.

We need to work with him to resolve that issue if he continues to have that problem.

Almost every customer we have installed locally has their sets working for a long time, well over 3 years, which is pretty reasonable for a product that is on every time you start the car.

I just finished installing the MyCarr LED's (Orions), and i am sooo happy i went with these instead of the CCFL. I was worried before i got them about the spacing between the LED's, but in person it looks totally different. There is a little noticeable spacing between the LED's but thats what makes them even nicer, gives it a very refreshing look, and its nothing like the posted pics you see. In person, it looks amazing..

Wow I can't f*cking beleive all the bashing from guys like Versace etc.

It's a f*cking DDE kit!!

If you don't like it, don't buy it!

Do you have NOTHING better to do than go online and bash a company that provides a product for people looking to buy that product?

Sorry to rant but every single thread turns out this way and it seriously makes fanatics seem retarded.

OP - FWIW, I bought my chromiums from Umnitza and went through an entire New England winter with no cold start issues/dead rings etc.

I would highly recommend the product and Umnitza. Don't listen to half the morons on this site that bud into threads they're really not needed in. These sponsors wouldn't still be in business if all the the haters brought up was true.

Yes.. I think so... it would be more beautiful with less gaps... - so, more LEDs please! And the Chromiums rings are wider....
But as I have written, the LEDs looks really nice - look at Audi A5...

I just need some peoples opinions with orions, how do they look? do you like them more then the chromiums? should i buy chromiums for now and wait til the orion v2 comes out?? i just feel like the orion's dont have enough led's in between.
Nether.

Wait to see what we having coming out - more info coming soon.
