Can't believe you guys finally finished this. Great work. I don't like some of JLevi's business practices, but I can vouch for Jon's explanation about the cost; having a mold produced for this bulb and mass producing them is not cheap, and unfortunately that reflects in the price. The community has wanted this solution for at least four years and now that it's finally available, we should understand that JLevi/Bimmian has to recoup their investment somehow.

I've had the OSS solution in my car for a while now, only problem is you have to splice the wires running into the headlight and mount resistors on both sides of the car. Being this setup doesn't require a resistor, where does the extra power getting fed to the bulb go? LED bulbs require considerably less power than the stock halogen bulb. I'm actually going to buy these for when my next M3 arrives so I don't have to splice the wires again.
