Yet get it done one time. You don't want to keep opening your headlights. Its a one shot thing to be on the safe side .

I had RBG OSS lights on my previous E92 N54 with blackouts. The blackouts brings the OSS lights out

I think black is better than the standard gray & it will stand out.

Alright, you got me!

I guess a better question to ask is how much did it cost you?

I paid 600 and had a local company in New Jersey do the install. Same product and installation as OSS, without me having to mail my headlights and be without my car for 4 weeks. Takes one day

Personally I actually prefer the OEM look. Some of the OSS lights just look like Depo headlights to me.
