umnitza.com ICE VXX for E65/6

For those of you that want an interim upgrade to your 7 series 2002-2008 without going to all the trouble of cutting your headlights open or downtime, our ICE VXX is a great way to get that white look. It's bright and daytime visible.

On the car model selection, you have 2 choices:

1) 2002-2008 E65
2) 2002-Present E65 (7-series) OE Headlight

What's the difference between these 2 selections? Bluntly, what should one choose for a 2008 E66 with OEM Headlight?

Thanks

These are brighter than the Mtec V3, they are the exactly the same as the mtec V4 as far as output but about $100 less than the V4 and built as well.

I called him the other day and he was down to earth and explained the differences to me in detail .. Just alone with that I feel confident doing business with him ..

That's great! I might order a set in the next few days since my bulb just went out. Can you post pics after you install them bc I'm interested if these are so bright at night that they wash out the halo's. I hope not bc that's a great price for a great product

Just an update, I placed my order with Umnitza thru the website Friday afternoon and I'm impressed by how fast handling and shipping was. My lights arrived in the mail yesterday! The box isn't as fancy as MTEC's, but the lights themselves feel sturdy and hefty as I remember my E60 Mtec v3. Excited to install them, hopefully when I get outta work today.

Thumbs up

Ok...installed my VXX's from Umnitza today, IMO....DEFINITELY WORTH THE PRICE & they are much brighter than the V3's I had in my previous E60. Very happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone thinking about V3's...pocket the extra money and pick up a set for your car! Price from Umnitza is amazing and still blown away by how fast these were shipped out and received.

before...afternoon, ISO 800


comparison 1:


comparison 2:


This was the only thing I didn't like...factory plug goes right into the V3's (which I liked).
***HOWEVER, PLENTY OF ROOM IN THE LIGHT FOR THIS AND AFTER I POWERED THEM ON, I WAS SOLD FOR GOOD!!!...MTEC's?? what MTEC's???***


Side-by-Side....late afternoon, ISO 800


Drivers side....Night pic taken w/ HTC One and ISO 100. (Picture still doesn't do them justice).


Night pic taken w/ HTC One, ISO 100.....They are BRIGHT...but the best thing is, they don't wash-out the headlight, I can see them with my headlamps on & they match the OEM HID's nicely. You just simply have to see these things with the human eye to appreciate them!
