Umnitza's P46 xenon Headlights

My stock headlights are beat and not worth a retrofit. I stupidly bought $200 eBay headlights that are depo knockoffs and took some modding to get to work but don't fit my V2's. do you think Umnitza's $250 Xenon's would be a good grab?

I would check your local BMW dismantlers and find a used set if possible. I personally don't have any experience with the P46's but I think even stock halogens with a retrofit would be better.

Umnitzas aren't probably any better, try to find a used set of xenons around the forum instead

Well here in Sacramento we have many different BMW dismantlers. But just check the classifieds here as well and i'm sure you can find a set for cheap!

. So I called Umnitza and they worked me a deal on their headlights. They have depo headlights running for $250 on sale for xenon headlights. So I asked them if I could **** my rings to them, so they could install them on the headlights I would buy, then **** the headlights already to plug-and-play. For $300 shipped and they said yes that would work. And since my stock headlights are trash, and the eBay headlights are just junk but still new. I thought $300 for the headlights shipped would be a steal. What do you think?
