Well, yes, it's done again. DDE just got brighter. Starting on March 18th, all shipments from that day forward are 60% brighter

But, but, I just ordered

If you've ordered and you've paid, you get the brighter ones for free, if you've not received shipment yet.

If you've ordered in the last pre-payment, you got the LumenX Enhancement for free but not this brighter kit.

You can pay for the upgraded lighting if you like, though prices are not yet determined for those, contact me for details.

Prove it
Pictures coming soon, for now, it's just:
Brand Rev1 = 101.3 lumens (existing LumenX)
Brand Rev2 = 168.4 lumens (LumenX rev 2)

ok, ok, where do I sign up?
Just go to my site www.umnitza.com - the info is already updated there.


Now for the fun stuff.
You can order from VinnyMac, Bimmian, or myself.

You get tapped into the Installer network that way.

What the hell man there should be like a yearly subscription or something where we get all upgrades included :)

What does this new upgrade consist of? New lightbox? I just bought a new lightbox! I think that's enough spending on the one mod lol....

i have a feeling that next year, the "eyes" will be so bright that we don't even need to turn on our headlight at night to drive..

"xenon-power" demon eyes will do the job :eeps: :eeps: :dunno:

This mod is improving faster than our computers w/their CPUs. I'm glad I haven't bought it yet. Might as well wait till it becomes a XENON technology DAE =P

Well, it's kind of funny you mention Xenon powered DDE.
We tried that, it's not that bright :p

See, wha happan;)

When we made Gen V Rev 1, it helped us buy out all the illuminators of one type in the country. So, we went looking for a substitute. Since none of the same illuminators existed, we found another one, lo and behold, it was brighter.

This doesn't have anything to do with new lightboxes or any of that.


Ok, the mystery is over, it's a new light bulb/illuminator.

It's a plug and play upgrade, unlike your PCs and CPUs, this one you just unscrew the top two bolts and slide it in.

That being said all existing purchases are still getting a free enhancement currently worth (based on our costs) $40, so I don't feel too bad for ya:D:D

Either it's me or it's the poor quality a photo can actually represent but, the DDEs that I see currently seem way too bright for its purpose. Actually it looks like the whole headlight casing is lit up.

Why isn't this so with regular daytime running light pictures?

Yes, you get Gen V.

Dukes, if you take a few second to look at my signature, I have a picture of a car with DRLs on them (the M5), and you can see the same affect.

The camera just doesn't meter that well, it's not the photographer it's the limitations of hte camera:(

So how many lumens do the OEM M5 lights kick out?

Rocky has 6 :p
Well no definitive answer on if there will be a 6.

Besides, I have FAITH in you guys over there. Will DDE technology surpass medical technology to keep Sylvestor Stallone in the ring? Oh I THINK SO.

Matt,

How do we get the new bulb? Do we have to send you the old one back, and do we have to pay for shipping?

Is there any way I can just pick it up from Jim?

Thanks.

Eric

What's the difference between the LumenX "Enhanced" and this brighter kit?
