OSS Angel Eye -Cost/Installation?

Read some threads....OSS seems to be the best choice. not a chance im sending my headlights out so how much does it cost to have this done at a shop, and where? Im inbetween hartford, ct and boston, ma all the time so a place near (30 miles +/-) would work. Ive heard Motorcepts in richmond hills, NY is good but anything more north....what is the cost of this?

I don't know where you are getting this information, but installation does not cost $50-$100. Lol

To pay someone to do the entire process, including removing your lights, pulling them apart, installing/painting etc and reinstalling them? Depending on options I would bet it's over $1000. I haven't read of any places in that area, or any other, that do the work.

Try 650-700$ LOL, and some down time, depending upon if you send your lights to Miami or not.

go with bavx, their LS3s are just as good as OSS and $150-200 less expensive. installation is easy, will take you an hour. my advice is do it right and go with an established vendor who does it.

This is a critical point. I had a nightmare on my hands a couple of years ago, thanks to an incompetent vendor who had no business doing OSS installs, let alone touching BMWs.

OSS charges 529 for installation of the angel eyes. Period. Price includes the halos but not shipping.

The umnitza angel eyes can be had for I'm assuming a few hundred. Installation can't be more than 300-400 if you buy the rings on your own. 1000? No way

Look up auto couture motoring they do the exact same thing as OSS and even more custom stuff. They're up north around you I think. Search ACM angel eyes.

Most custom auto shops will just charge you their hourly rate no matter what you have them do, whether it's installing downpipes or LED rings. Around here, it's 65-80/hr for "specialty" labor in qualified shops. I don't know if OSS sells their product in this manner however. They may only sell you their stuff if they install it themselves for all I know.

I know the feeling, but I just swallowed my pride and drove to Miami (10 hours) to have Luis do it. I was tired of wasting money on AE bulbs and still not achieving the look I was after. You have to pay to play. If you do shipping, it should be $700 + shipping.

+1, but the price could vary depending on options.

took mine out and sent them to oss designs. total cost with overnight shipping was around $850. it depends on the options you want. i just did blackout projectors and gunmetal paint. if you want bmw paint codes sprayed in the booth, you're looking at double the cost. work is fantastic, and i wouldn't trust anyone but luis or unmitza themselves to do this. there are some guys doing DIY's in here but if you're not comfortable with all that labor of love then stick to the pro's.
