Thanks, all roundels are now blacked out, including the wheel caps.

Excellent response from Umnitza today via email after posting frustrations...Exactly what was needed.
At this point another 2 weeks to wait but feeling much better about my transaction and I remain hopeful lights will show soon.

Thanks for your replies...

Cheers GJ

Mein Auto: 2000 Z3 2.3
Old thread but same subject - how are those upgrades doing?

Some guy backed into my 2000 Z3 2.3. It was all original - incl. paint - with 70K miles and now I have to replace headlights, bumper and hood and paint. I can get the halos for about 25% of the cost of original OEMs or 50% less than used (clouded) OEMs.

This thread is 6 years old so I'm wondering...

1. I can find them new on ebay (trashed in thread) but sellers recommend professional install and reference alternative power source.
2. I went to Umnitza and they say - "These projector headlights are not compatible with factory Xenon H.I.D. system, it comes with its own standard Halogen light bulbs for installation." Not exactly sure what they are trying to say and what "its" is.
3. Umnitza says I've reached them after hours at 9m Pacific.
4. For those that switched to halos - any issues?
5. Ultimately, I just want a pair of complete headlight fixtures, with bulbs, mounting brackets and housing to cleanly install without adaptation.

Thoughts?

Can anybody talk about the quality of the actual headlight beam produced by these aftermarket lights? How do the low and high beams compare when compared to the original lights?
I have upgraded bulbs in mine and have very good quality and quality with my clean OEM headlights.
Thanks,
Rudy
