MTEC products are the same from any vendor, there is no difference in quality or output

So just to clarify... Which exact product are you using in these pics and where were they purchased from?

Yes product is the same. But that is not even close to what I was talking about which you quoted. Ebay buyer protection is light years ahead of the return policy you provide. I asked for a return policy more in line with respectable business practices, which you have chosen to ignore. Nuff said.

I'm sorry if this has been discussed before, but the new standard (non-LED) 2013 headlamps look similar in design to the 2009-2012 headlamps. Is there any way that putting the 2013 bulbs in a 2009-2012 headlamp would reproduce the 2013's bright white / blue corona rings?

Wow! Angel eyes gone modern... full report no bs

So after so many discussions and topics can anyone recommend a good Halo/Corona light brand that I should go with? I love my F01 but really hate the yellow light look. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

The only solution, and it's not even a solution is to go with HID. Often it is too bright and it has cause many issues for many people (burned wiring, melted corona rings, etc). Unfortunately there is really no alternative for the 7 series.

How about Umnitza lights. They claim they are like OEM 13' coronas?

No. You have to bake the light and pry them apart.

You don't pry them apart, you have to cut your headlights open. When we started doing the work for customers, it was initially scary, you're cutting $1500 headlights open. But after about 300 sets of doing it, we've perfected it and can turn it around in about 24 hours with no issues.

Usually that cost is per, but we can order them from Euro for you for about $1700-2200 depending on the configuration of the options.
