  • Orion COB Lite has no LED visible and is 25% brighter than CCFL.
  • Orion V2 has 60 LED, has a slightly more "Audi-esque" look, has a lifetime warranty against defects, is 300% brighter than CCFL. As bright as OEM 2010+ BMW cars. Note: 50% brighter than Orion COB Lite but more reliable.
  • Orion V4 has 120 LED, has no gaps between LED, is 100% brighter than Orion V2
  • Orion V2 Multi-Color  has a selectable mode where you can choose what color you can be in

2) Xenon Upgrades - (not all options available for all headlights, check drop down options)

  • SuperSlim D2S/HX/900X 35W System - AC Bulbs and Ballasts 35W - our price leader, may not work on some cars due to error cancelling
  • SuperSlim D2S/HX/900X 55W System - AC Bulbs and Ballats 55W - our output leader, may not work on some cars due to error cancelling
  • Canbus Pro D2S/HX/900X 35W System - AC Bulbs and Ballasts- our error cancelling system - this may be required for your car, it is the best option if you are unsure and most reliable.
  • Canbus Pro D2S/HX/900X 45W NHK - AC Bulbs and Ballasts - our top of the line CANBUS ERROR CORRECTING System. This is an OEM quality level kit.
  • Denso D2S Only 35W System - AC Bulbs and Ballasts - this is only for use with D2S systems - THIS IS AN OEM SYSTEM

3) Bixenon Projector - (not all projectors are available with each type of headlight)

Click on the link below for more details on the projector types.

3) Pre-Installed - All options chosen include pre-installation into the headlights. There is no longer a separate pre-installation charge for any items. 

4) Car Models - All cars that "fit" into a certain model year range are applicable regardless of features or content unless otherwise specified below.

5) Clear Film Protection - It's a good idea to purchase some protective film to keep your headlights looking new if you are in a windy, dirty, or often grimy part of the country. Or, if you do a lot of night driving or country driving where debris can damage your headlight. The film will not protect from larger rocks or accidents

6) Color - for Xenon Only

  • 4300K - Pure white with hints of yellow
  • 6000K - Pure white with slight hints of blue
  • 8000K - Pure white with significant blue 

Benefits of Bixenon Option:

  • Requires minor tap to high beam wires on some cars, on others, the bixenon function is completely transparent.
  • BIXENON FUNCTIONALITY - Does your car not currenlty have Bixenons? No problem, this application gives you a setup that is just like the factory bixenon feature without reprogramming, errors, rewiring, or new LCM required.
  • 2X better beam pattern (as compared to most OEM applications and aftermarket projectors) - beam pattern is wider, deeprer and the pattern is sharp and defined.
  • Small footprint for easy installation - dimensionally just like stock and aftermarket headlights, doesn't require any custom fitting.
  • Incredible improvement in night visibility - far better light pattern and prism - see photos above.

Advances in lighting technology have improved the quality, clarity, and pattern of newer projectors that are currently being installed inside newer headlights for the very best lighting and road visibility. Now, you too can take advantage of the improvement with an OEM style system that dramatically improves upon an already well designed and quality system of the standard headlights offered here. 

While a little more expensive and certainly not for everyone, the Bixenon retrofit is completely seamlessly integrated into the housing, retaining full adjustability, auto-leveling controls, with no additional space requirements for install.

The major benefits of the Bixenon retrofit are greater intensity, clarity, and dramatically improved light patterns with no associated glare.  And, the major benefit of going with our solution is a fully integrated setup without having to purchase and pay extra for other services. 

A simple chart below illustrates the quality differences between the various solutions:

Your Current Halogen Lights = Black and White TV
Projector Halogen Lights = Color TV
Projector Xenon Lights = LCD TV
Projector Xenon 50W Lights = LCD LED HD TV
Projector Xenon Bixenon Lights = BlueRay LCD HD TV


Summary Q/A

What is the difference between "Projector39 Hella Style with Orion V2 Option" vs the "Projectore39 with Predator Orion V2"?

The Projector39 Hella Type is based on the OE Xenon Euro headlight from the OE manufacturer HELLA

What is BIXENON?  Does that refer to the projector itself that is better than regular projectors?  Does it use a speacial type of bulb?

As described above, the BIXENON is a new style of projector system with hi/lo-shutter features. It does not use anything special as a bulb, it uses a D2S bulb.

Do all the different Xenon options come with diff. bulb?  Are spare/replacement bulbs readily available for any of them or are some/all proprietary?

For non-Bixenon applications, all the bulbs are H7. For Bixenon applications they are all D2S or H1. Spare bulbs can be purchased in our Lighting Section.

For Angel Eyes, is the Orion V4 just the newer/better version of the Predator Orion V2?  Is there a picture of what the V2 vs V2 Opaque looks like?
Orion V4 has 120 LED per ring, and looks factory perfect, though it is more expensive.
Orion V2 and Orion V2 Opaque look very similar in photos, the difference is that Orion V2 Opaque looks frosted when off, but looks the same when on.

Is the price shown for the pair or for each assembly?
Price is for a pair

Product Description :

For years, E39 BMW owners wanted the look of the more finished Hella product without having to pay the OE price. Now, DJ Auto released their Hella look alike replica headlight. While many retailers will simply repackage the DJ Auto and send it out as is, we replace the wiring and the internals to include the Orion V2 kit with all the orders for a brighter, longer lasting, and more reliable product. Just compare the photos of what you get "out of the box" versus what you get you from Umnitza.

Install Tips:


  • VERY IMPORTANT. ONCE A HEADLIGHT IS INSTALLED it's NON-RETURNABLE except to fix any warranty issues, it's always best to pre-test all the connections and make sure all of the lights turn on properly prior to installation.

  • Mount the controller UNDER the headlights on a flat, dry and vibration free surface, DS Tape works just fine for this.

  • Use existing 9006 connections to connect directly to the Xenon or Halogen connections.

  • Ensure secure connections to and from the headlight - electrical grease is a good option to use.

Install Tips for 2001+ Headlights going onto 1997-2000 cars (and some wagons).
