Kit is set of four 6k angel eyes. All rings are matching 6k in color. They were bought new and were installed for a few months with receipt to validate.

What's the lowest you'll go since they're used and could fall within the next of having them with no warranty.

@peyton, thank you for pointing that out.

I try to refrain from responding to such posts, I am simply trying to sell my product and have no interest in engaging in senseless comments. Having said that, I don't know where you would get the notion that angel eyes that were used for three months would be likely to fail??

That's why they give a warranty man, you never know. I'm interested, I would just like to know if I could somehow hold the lifetime warranty since I'm buying them used.

They're LEDs. If you have any idea of how LEDs functions you'll understand that there's really no way they're going to "burn out" with a mass produced product like this. The only way is to over power them and that would require armature custom wiring from a noob.
If they're functioning correctly at the time of sale there's no reason why they would ever fail other than user error. And the factory warranty doesn't cover user error anyway.

Thanks for clearing that up, it's always a battle between khoalty and umnitza. Sound like umnitza beats it, agree?

As far as I know khoalty doesn't sell high end angel eyes. I might be wrong though. The v2s are "high end"

Actually khoalty angel eyes led usually go out. V2's don't really have such problems.

And Trent if you purchase them his lifetime warranty will not follow

It's not the LEDs burning out though. It's the soldering going bad because they are cheaply made. That's what separates a premium ring from a cheap ring.
The LEDs going out is actually 100% fixable because the LEDs are still good.
