I bit the bullet and ordered the projectors!!! yay!
 
So on my way home on 4th of july.
I drove with just my HID fogs and angel eyes on.... and then switched between my low beams on with them and noticed absolutly no difference.
I said to my self.... well if I can't see **** at night what good are these headlights?
So I contacted Umnitza and ordered the projectors with 6k HIDs.
I will be doing the install sometime this week:).
pictures up soon!
Everything in total shipped was $387 btw if anyone would like to know.
$87 more then DDMtuning.
But at least with Umnitza you have a very good warranty.
Great support and the fact that if you already have angel eyes from them ( like I do ).
You'll know for a fact they'll fit right and everything is under warranty by them:)

Yeah:)
next will be VMR 714 rims with H&R lowering springs and a M3 front lip like yours:).
Then GTR hood then VF supercharger.
I decided the M3 hunt is taking to long and might as well fully mod my car in the mean time.

Yay!

Nice Malibu I am in the market for Angel eyes. So these projectors you purchased are they the whole headlight assembly? I am trying to decide whether to just get Angel Eyes with new lenses or the whole assembly since my lenses are fairly cloudy.

i knew you would cave in :thumbup: You'll love them.

These include everything.
Housing, lenses, ballasts for the HID kit, bulbs, nuts bolts all that good stuff.
I first started it off with just the angel eyes. Which were Orion V2s.
I was VERY happy with them and still are.
But After I recently put on a M3 front with HID fogs. My current hologen housing just doesn't fit the front of the car.. doesn't look right....
I also couldn't see very well at night either.
So that's what made me decided on these. And the help of Jryguyi lol.

Sorry if I seem a bit slow but did you have Xenons? I am asking this since I am gettting ready to get the M3 bumper as well and I currently have Xenons with foggy lenses haha. I am trying to figure out if the new housing is a good way to go versus getting (or repairing) new lenses with some Orion V2s.

I am looking at these:

Also, what do you recommend, Amber, 6000k or 4300k? Thanks!

ThreeTwoFive 07-06-2009 03:04 PM

Finally dude!!
See what I mean about halogens?
just wait untill u get hte projectors on..lol..

jryguyi 07-06-2009 03:17 PM

There on sale $249

conzbmw 07-06-2009 03:26 PM

yeah Im about to upgrade my cracked lenses...So im going to go with the DDM full kit that comes with Projectors, angel eyes, HID kit etc. But I have NO idea as to what there going to look like seeing as their is only one photo on their site...and there are options for the Angel eyes, Bulb color, and HID options...which I have noooo Idea about. 6000K is the highest u can go in Canada without getting a ticket from the pigs.

6000k is perfect

conzbmw 07-06-2009 03:48 PM

I already had Orion V2 angel eyes.
So I just ordered the projector kit from Umniiza that was on sale for $249.
You can buy lenses seperately for like $40s each or so.
If you want the whole projector housing I'd say either ddmtuning or umnitza.

Very nice justification for getting them, also you will helping out the people of Cali by blinding oncoming traffic (even though it not that bad) :D

Can wait for the new projectors :thumbup:

SeanC 07-07-2009 12:02 PM

They sure are an improvement, but almost all aftermarket projectors are designed for halogen bulbs (not as much wide angle as the OEMs, but they're ok). OEM color is 4300K by the way, light output is better with the 4300Ks than the 6000Ks.
