Orion V2 LED Rings from Umnitza - Any available substitutes?

I've heard of people finding subs for this product on eBay but I haven't seen any personally.

Are there any substitutes for the following product?
http://www.umnitza.com/predator-orio...63f0bhhgrn61d5


Application is an E90 LCI w/ xenons


Guess the question boils down to cost and whether there's anything comparable for under $250 that achieves all the great feats of the Orion rings such as no code, remote fade, etc

Thank you guys.

Hi,
We are aware of this issue and are working on it ( getting flagged as a porn site).
We are not offering a substitute for the V2. We offer a better product
Our product has double the number of LED than a V2 and is brighter.
Check out this thread, we have a group buy going if you are interested

V2's are harder to find because they're becoming obsolete, therefore not being produced. There are better angel eyes out there now a days.

I'm looking to do these myself so it has to be a seller willing to sell just the rings... why is that so uncommon? I get that it's a way to make money but there should be the opportunity to still make money by selling the rings w/o the labor included...

We do not sell the rings only because people might damage it when trying to install and then blame the product.
There is also a big liability in terms of sealing the headlight.

I've opened and closed headlights before with no issues on previous Audi's that I owned so I feel pretty confident in doin it myself. Found some on eBay but would rather buy from an authorized vendor that stands behind his product etc.

Im not aware of any dealer on this forum that would sell you the rings separately.

Send a pm to 888concept. He'll get you a set of rings and replace them if you have an issue.

But you guys don't split the labor and parts. I can't go a week w/o my car unfortunately, planning on doing this over the weekend.

Sell me just the rings and we got a deal
