Default Umnitza Lights

Just wondering what if any are the advantages of the lights featured on the Umnitza site. I am about to get my CSL and was wondering if these were more powerful than the std items...any other difference?

Thanks

i think u can just change the bulbs right? they offer some xenon bulbs with a much higher output.

Default i hope

i can help you out here i think that if you go with the xenon upgrades that umnitza has that will bump you up from stock 4300K to a brighter 6000K light source which will also be more "white". hope this helps but if not contact matt and umnitza and I am sure he will be glad to help you out with any questions you may have.

been hearing problems with Umnitza customer service as of late...

My buddy got 3 defective sets of lights for his car and Umnitza failed to refund all 3 sets...kept making him pay and said they would reimburse him...well apon arrival when the lights were checked using the battery terminals they failed...he sent back...Umnitza verified and this issue as been going on for well over 6months now with no support..

PM illegalprelude he is the one who is having problems...but he isn't the only one...i'm sure he wouldn't mind chiming in on his experience..

I ordered my WP phosphyre's from him...didnt have a bad experience at all when i initially purchased them...just thought people would like to hear one of the bad experiences...the one i posted about was a bit extreme...the guy spent over $1000 in lights that only cost $300 or so and he still doesnt have working lights:nixweiss:

Yeah.. i have been noticing faulty products from Umnitza.. i ordered 2 kits from him so far.. one for my friend and myself.. rings were diff color, but he ended up giving me a new one..... but one thing that really bugged me was the loseness of the clips on WP regular halos.. the clips were so lose that it would just spin on the end of the ring.... i had to wrap tape around it so that i was actually holding onto the ring...

Hope these Taiwan made rings are holding up their value...
