Any good shop in San Antonio, TX?

Hi, I am new to this site and new to San Antonio, TX.

My 2009 BMW 328i Sedan has an OEM headlights. They are in excellent condition, but I want something like "High powered LED" or light-blue halo rings something like this: http://ossdesigns.net/.

The service guy from the local BMW car dealership told me that they wouldn't do the upgrades and retrofits, because upgrades/retrofits will potentially damage my BMW car. Damage my car? I doubt he knows what he was talking about.

If there is no shop in San Antonio, TX then any guys from San Antonio, TX have experience with retrofits/upgrades and willing to help would be awesome. I am willing to pay.

Thanks!

Hi,

Fellow SA resident here.... It's been decades since I've taken my BMWs in for service outside the dealer, however, Rhine West on Broadway outside of Loop 410 used to be really good.

Try them out.

Thanks guys! Just went to Rhine West this morning and one of service advisors told me that they can do the halogen to xenon conversion. ($1,000 to $1,600 each)

I wouldn't spend that money on lights. Just my $.02

Maybe get wheels or suspension if you don't have it already?
