OSS Style Lights in Toronto

I find it hard to believe that not even one, just ONE place can't do OSS style AEs for our cars in Toronto or the GTA.

Does anyone out there know if such a place does exist for us?

I remember looking myself and not finding anything out there.

Good business idea though! Someone needs to learn this and start it up!

talk to frankie valenti at 20hz audio, he does some crazy installs (did my entire jl audio setup). Im sure he would be able to do this with ease, just checkout his projects

let him know jordan sent you (the kid with the 2 w7s) and I'm sure he would be willing to workout a deal

Thanks dude.

bb103, they only offer up "plug and play" stuff but nothing OSS related.

Why dont you guys buy the rings from umnitza and get those guys mentioned to install it? Thats what I did because really there is only 3 shops that sell and install LED rings that I know of...umnitza, bavx, and oss.

Do you have a link to the Umnitza ones?

How different are they from these lights?:

ah didn't realize when i spoke to him on the phone he thought i had a 323 and he was telling me that he uses german tech(whatever that brand is) and he'll need to open the headlight to put the halo rings.... but if u find a group buy let me know!

he sent me this image of his lights seem decent.

I'll see if he responds to the e-mail. I've noticed that some businesses are SO brutal at checking their e-mails. Why even have one? I usually establish contact first through e-mails and then call or visit.

If I don't hear from him early next week, I'll call.

Keep you guys posted.

I'd love to get the OSS lights. But if there's a different alternative I'd probably be all over it. Need to know the price before I commit

I think it comes down to buying the kit and then labour prices.

The Umnitza kit link is in this topic to help give you an idea.

Just make sure whoever installs it for you guys uses extra sealant all around to avoid moisture.

And it will throw codes cc id 378 + 379

I beg to differ, but if you have some concrete info to why you think these orbs are less superior to the other brand, please let me know so at least I am aware of it and can bring this to the attention of the dealer and the shop I went to for my upgrade. I find it hard to believe, but like I said maybe you know more than I do and can shed some light..These Orbs are really fine so far though..

Looks good. Nothing against them, just not much review of the product so I based my opinion on that. Opening headlights isnt plug and play, umnitza rings are proven solid and have life time warranty. Im sure you're backing up your friends at 180 and Im actually a fan of their work but im just not sure about the orbs

When it comes to mods on my car, there are no such thing as friend. I wonder why u would say something like that? I went with them simply because I seen their work and was very impressed. If you do post info, please post concrete info to back up your claims and not just hear say. I thought you heard negative things about these orb rings and I was curious, but if you saying there hasn't been enough reviews on them, I can understand your consumer concern. I didn't know OSS had lifetime warranty. Thats pretty awesome. I hope my AE will last for a long time. We will see. Sorry for coming on this thread, but I was reading and had a concern when you posted about these orbs that's I just had installed on my car!
