Umnitza Black Friday sale? Any point in waiting?

Wanting to order angel eyes, clear corners and sides. Any point in waiting for November 25th and see if they come up with anything for the sale?

Figured since I am ordering those 3 things at once, maybe it will be worth it? Do they usually have something? I know some of you guys are veterans so you would know this best..

thanks!

If you search around the sponsors here you may find a vendor who those items you want for a killer deal in comparison to the pricing there, without having to wait until black friday.

Looks sharp. I see what they mean by the blueish tint tho.

The Helios main thread doesn't seem to have a whole lot of action going on..

Any recommendations?

Well if they had it for Canada at $150+ and then free shipping I would buy it...

Even that their stuff is cheaper after shipping it costs me more than umnitza

Hehe no worries, I know that the majority here are US so the sponsors are all also US based with the best prices and with shipping geared towards them.

The Orion V2's are the best angel eyes out there in terms of quality and brightness. Sorry Blocked Out, they may not be to your taste but they are definitely the best in terms of quality. Look at how many people have had problems with other angel eyes. I will tell you that they are a more bluish white, at first! After a few months of using them they appear more white than blue, however, yes they do have a bluish tint to them.

Your other options are the Helios, Weisslicht or the cheaper version of the V2's that Umnitza sells. The Helios are a replacement product for the original angel eyes that Khoalty carried that were just pure crap. These seem to be better but a few have already had issues with fitment and what not.

Many have gone with the Weisslicht and they are definitely good quality. They are not as bright or as thick as the Orion V2's and many people like that about them. If it were up to me I would decide between the Orion V2's or the Weisslicht's.

Thanks for the info. Yah I think I made my mind up and I want the orion V2's. Just because their warranty alone seems a lot better than the others.

Quick question, they have a few different clear front corners. Like I am not sure what the difference is between some say silver lining while others say black?

There is a bit of misinformation on this thread.

These are crucial to deciding which one to purchase if you want longevity, quality, originality, and value

LIFETIME WARRANTY - why bother with buy backs or 1 year or even 5 year. You never worry.
Damage Guarantee - we even offer you a 100% guarantee that if you are in an accident and your angel eyes are broken in the accident we will replace them free!
Options We offer both multiple OE colors, and T10 connectivity, and wiring harnesses with remote built in. Not to mention the above Opaque, the newly released version.
Steady, unbreakable clips - why bother with replacement clips that don't fit, don't work, and fail all over the place.

Finally, for the maximum value, why bother with a knock-off, when you can have the original and real thing and be safe and secure knowing that you will never have to purchase another set of angel eyes unless you want to. They will never fail.

PS: It looks like the competitive offering that is new is nothing more than the eBay knock-off that has been out for about 2 years and is copying all the components of the original Orion V2. Be weary of claims and be weary of longevity.
Despite all the competitors over the years, Orion V2 remains the best.

Also, as a general comment about our prices, for basic DEPO prices, just call us, we'll match AND beat any price by any competitor. We do buy a lot of them.

Match and beat? Fantastic. I think I'll be ordering a lot sooner then. I will get in touch with you.
