Alright so i know Angel eyes have been talked about countless amounts of times on here but I read or see no pictures or hear anything about the ebay ones vs like khoalty or orion lite's. I figure they will be around the same quality since they are cheaper but could they be even better than those 2 from the vendors?

pictures at bottom don't look bad at all (if in fact those pictures are these angel eyes exactly)

Any guinea pigs out there who have tried these out? :dunno:

Get ones from a recommended vendor. I had some ebay ones and they were okay, but burned out after about 3-4 months. Not sure about the ones you posted (mine were pre LED) but most of the stuff on ebay is cheap for a reason.

I now have umnitza led ones and haven't had any issues in over a year and a half.

No warranty, no like. They may be fine, but if they burn out you're outta luck and money. At least if you purchase from a reputable vendor they'll warranty the product and cover any problems.

Do you have just the $60 lite ones? I think im going with those also. If you have a picture with them on you should post it up i always see only pictures of the V2's and those are so damn bright.. I think the general lite ones would look better IMO

This one you found is the same ones I have in my Depo46s. I had them for 1 month now, stills works good. It's just so bright and white.
I wish I bought the weaker orange OEM colored ones.

I am sure it clip in ok. I bought my lights with it pre-installed. It's great that this comes with the relay kit, you really need that to wire it properly.
What kind of headlights do you have? OEM halos or xenons? If you have Halos then its better just to upgrade to the Depo46 xenons with angel eyes preinstalled.
It's about 300, I mean this angel eyes alone is like $75+shipping

I already have the Xenon headlights so im good there. My first thought was to get them from ebay until i found the umnitza orion lite for the same price so i don't know anymore on which to go with!

The ebay one is brighter than the uminitza lite. I'd say it's about the Orion V2 brightness. Honestly if any brighter, it'll look stupid.
I am not sure how well the ebay ones clip on to the OEM headlights. But quality wise It's pretty solid so far. At least the summer heat for 1 month straight hasn't burn out any leds.

These are the Orion Lite/Generic/Weiis/Khoalty/etc. rings. They are cheap, ineffective, and will fail rather easily unless you are skilled at soldering (in which case you can ultimately fix them).

We sell them for $60 + shipping + warranty choice. They come with 1 year warranty automatically.

Do you have just the $60 lite ones? I think im going with those also. If you have a picture with them on you should post it up i always see only pictures of the V2's and those are so damn bright.. I think the general lite ones would look better IMO
Most of our customers buy the Lite, then move on to the V2 after dealing with issues with the Orion Lite. We don't recommend it unless you are skilled at soldering to fix issues or want to continually replace rings.

Well thats good it sounds like.. hmm I could buy both and still be cheaper than the V2 haha

It is an option. yes.

i'm pretty good at soldering but what if anything usually goes out and does anything physically need to be replaced? like individual leds or anything?

Lol. If the OP listens to everyone here then his head will explode. Just buy the ebay one to save your $ or pay more and buy from one of the sponsors to above to keep them happy. it's just some cosmetic rings and it's not rocket science technology.

Am I the only one that thinks this bit of logic is strange?

So .... if something is cheaper than something else - that means it's the same quality?

haha I said that weird but what i mean is the Orion Lites are about $60 and the ebay ones are about $60 so i am saying they are both of the same quality i am assuming.. as in neither of those are probably much better in quality than the other since priced around the same
