Hey everyone,
Im interested in acquiring some lightning bolt headlights. I know there are so so so many non oem versions out there ranging from spyder to depo to straight up oem. Ive come across a brand called umnitza, they have good reviews and well over 100 gtr headlights sold. So Im curious what your experience has been with them if youve gotten them. Ive reached out about a group buy, but after my last disappointment in manufacturing quality, I want to make sure I do more on my end to ensure the product is worth yalls time as well. So please If youve bought from umnitza, share. What is the product like, hows visibility, how is brightness, clarity, quality of product, customer service, shipping. There is nothing I dont want to hear except just buy oem. Im just looking for your experience with this one particular company, thank you.

Glad to hear. Appreciate the response. With enough favorable reviews Ill likely buy a set and make some videos testing.

Here are heads and tail. Would love more feedback on these. Wed be looking around 1500 for the headlights and subs 2k for them as a set heads and tails. But I dont want to set it up if people have already had bad experiences in the past. Thank you all

Agreed, and the tails are oem in design, so you can use your turn as tail if you have it which Im drawn to. But theyve sold over 200 sets of headlights so someone here must have them!

Cant you get a set at the group price to test and then if they are pretty good, we can all jump on a group buy?


And 5 years down the road when you trade it in for $30k nobody is going to give a F*** that you licked it clean. Keep it up!



It is called the "pop and bang map" in the UK and is generally used by twats who spend most of their time racing around central London acting like dicks.

If Austin can convince Umnitza to let him test a set at a discount (no matter what it is) that’s up to Austin. As Austin is taking all the risk, I would suggest he only does so with a significant discount or Umnitza offers him a set to test and report on free of charge plus shipping possibly. Whatever Austin is comfortable with.

This is exactly what Im trying to do. I just dont feel like spending nearly 2k for untested lights only to end up stuck with them. Again I have no idea how this company really is, thats why I made this post. But if I can get a set to test I will happily upload my results here and will put videos on YouTube for everyone to see first hand.

Theyre trying to get some of their buyers to contact me about their experiences. We will see what happens but at this point Im not holding my breath about it

Ill give it until Monday. If no further movement on their part aside from offering a discount Ill be done with this attempt.

Havent heard anything thus far. If someone else wants to take the lead on this I 100% understand but Ive done my due diligence and will be looking for oem unless someone else has a brand they trust. Appreciate the patience
