OSS 2-Tone w/ V4 Rings Installed on E90 LCI (lots of pics)

So I finally got the lights installed and the car washed so I took a bunch of pictures. I did my best to try and capture how they look in different lighting situations, rings on, rings off, etc... If there's anything else in particular anyone wants a picture of please don't hesitate to ask and i'll do my best. In person they look amazing and the lights are my favorite mod i've done to the car. They changed how everything looks and the car looks so much more aggressive now.

I also posted up a review of OSS Designs detailing how they were to deal with, the process, and everything else in case anyone wants to read that. Let me know your thoughts on the lights and any suggestions you guys might have. Msport is next and on its way then I gotta save up some money and i'll probably do exhaust, lip, and diffuser then hopefully I will be done.

Pics Luis texted as soon as he finished the lights:





Pics unboxed from when they arrived:





Right after install (night pics):





















Daytime pics in direct sunlight (dirty car):































Pics during sunset with the car washed:































And one with the turn signal:

BAD. EFFING. ASS. Dude

Love the way the look. If I end up keeping my car for a very long I would definitely do this with the V4's. I just have other things I want to save for first like a mtech perf rear and lci tails.

These are so uniform though they are probably just as nice as the new LCI lights on the coupes and F30's. I also love how they aren't yellow when off like the V2's are. These are perfect

looks great! how well do the LED turn signals illuminate at night now that the chrome housing is gone? i know mine bounce off street signs in broad daylight.

The sidemarker turn signal or turn signal in the headlight? If you're talking about the one in the headlight I haven't noticed any decrease in brightness

Thanks man I love them and they made it look so much more aggressive. To be honest they are yellow when off but only if you're head on. There's really no way around that other than tinting the rings like those ACM headlights you showed me. I didn't want them tinted since brightness decreases and as I said they only appear yellow directly head on. I'd definitely recommend them though they're extremely bright even in direct sunlight

Yea they show up great in sunlight it looks like.

I love my Lux but they sure are weak in the daylight and up close at certain angles (obviously not any fault of Lux). These seem to be stunning at any angle, any distance, day or night..

Interesting they are yellow, I bet no one notices though if it's only head on. Good call on the lights man. Seriously awesome.

Thanks, I had a tough time deciding on the color scheme but knew I didn't want to do full blackout. Really happy with the way they 2-tone turned out.

Thanks! Yea the Lux were awesome while I had them and by far the best bulb option in my opinion. I think the yellowing is just the way LED's are made and they will always have the yellow back. Unless you're looking for it you can't really notice the yellow. You really have to kneel down and look directly head on.

LOL. I laugh at this every time I see the signs lighting up. I sometimes wonder if people in front of me wonder where its coming from. Its almost overkill.

By the way Smitty, they look great!
