Here is a better link with F01 pics http://www.e92-lighting.com/products...2-1105-20.html

I would be willing to give these a shot but your limited 7 days to return and then 15% restocking fee seems overly restrictive. Would you be willing to provide a standard 30 day return policy and no restocking fee as most reputable stores do now? I would love to do a comparison of these with my Philps bulbs. Please advise.

My 20watt LED's are too dimm during a sunny day, what makes you think that a 6watt or 12watt? (not sure given their description) will work better.

This guy has never bothered to show us useful sunny day pics

Valid point. Even when I look at the pics they do not seem to be markedly different than than my Philips 5000k presently. That being said I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt if they would have policies more in line with reputable companies. Will be interested to hear their reply.

Even better yet, send out a test pair. If they are as good as they say and I decide to keep will pay for them in full and post pics of their wonder! :-)

Agree, if you believe in the product you're selling then i see no reason to charge restocking fee. it's not like you need to lift it with a forklift and have 2 guys setting it back up on the shelf.

he can however ask that buyer will pay for shipping and thats it!

I have 20Watt LED's and they look better than any halogen when dark or even on a cloudy day. In the sun, due to the color temperature, they are simply too dim.

On Ebay Germany, there are 35Watt (per side) LED's that would be interesting to try out.


Either way, no LED or halogen will be ever as bright as the current crop of 5series, etc. as the AE rings are not designed for the light output...

They seem to go for about 100 euros but need to find one that ships to US

One thing about Ebay, they have an amazing return policy with their buyer protection plan. The seller can say what they want, but ebay will refund you money most all the time no questions asked if your not happy. I may give these a shot because of that. E-92 seems to have gone dead quiet as soon as I asked for a decent return policy. Clearly they don't even have faith in their own product....pathetic.

They really don't. Certainly not straight on and in sunlight. I use the Strahl lighting and they are quite even around the rings and look super-bright in the garage or at an angle, but when you stand 20feet away from the car on a sunny day (straight on), they just wash out.

There are dealers on Ebay selling this MTEC V2 cree LED, but i'm not sure which of them are selling the V2 ones, some say V2 6W and others V2 12W?

Any idea if we could deal directly with with the MTEC dealer?
