Hello everyone, first of all forgive my English (I am from Spain).
In November of last year I contacted the Umnitza company to buy some headlights for my gtr, I also had doubts like you, and here in Spain it is difficult to get some headlights at a decent price.
 
I reached an agreement with them, and bought a headlight kit, the shipping was quite cheap and luckily, they charged me very little from customs.
 
The headlights look amazing, I leave you a photo of when I received them (they only took 1 week to arrive in Spain, having to go through customs and everything).

I assembled them myself in the garage, lifting the car in front a little and with patience, it takes a couple of hours. The headlights are totally plug & play, they fit perfectly, 0 problems.
I leave you some photos of the process.

As you can see they look great, the beam turns on when you put the position light, and also when you turn on the short-range lights it stays on.
The lighting I would say is better than the stock xenons, but I imagine that the OEM headlights will shine a little better, but it is more than enough. And by turning on the long-range light, it literally becomes daylight.
 
I leave you a couple of photos, the first one is how the standard xenons lit up, and the second with the umnitza headlights.

I am very happy with the purchase, I already needed about 2017 headlights.
I hope it helps you, I will also buy the rear lights kit soon, greetings!

Couple questions, if placed in this situation would you choose umnitza again over oem? Have you had any issues with condensation, leaks, water?

Yes, I would repeat without hesitation (they are not paying me much less hehe), I have not had any condensation problem, no leaks or water.
Of course I would repeat, the total price if I remember correctly was  1,629€ shipping and customs included.
The 2017 oem headlights here in Spain cost about  2,500€ each headlight, so imagine the difference ..
regards!
