Got my lights back from OSS.

After putting it off last year, I pulled the trigger and sent my lights down to Luis at OSSDesigns. I have a pre LCI e92 and I've never been happy with my angels eyes. Whether they're not bright enough or not evenly lit, they just annoyed me. Between the bulbs I've tried and seeing other posts here, nothing was going to get me the desired look I'm after except LED rings.

No one does this type of work locally so I sent them to OSS because of his track record and proven product. Luis was very informative in our initial emails laying out the different options and costs. Once he had my lights, we exchanged cell numbers which was made communicating very easy. After texting back and forth with different options, I chose to go the the V4 solid look rings with full blackout. Two days later....they were on a FedEx truck heading back home. Considering Luis' busy schedule, I was very happy with the turn around and the level of personal service.

I re-installed the lights yesterday and I can't stop looking at them....they are perfect! I still can't get over how bright, evenly lit, and beautiful they are. There's nothing that can compare with LED ring retrofits and the service that OSS provides is second to none. The pics attached don't do them justice. If you're on the fence thinking about getting this done.....just do it. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks....it's not cheap. The V4 rings with full blackout is $699 but worth it IMO. You can go with the V2 rings that are more of a beaded look for $100 less. I should of just went this route in the beginning and avoided spending money on bulbs that just can't match the uniform brightness.

For some reason i thought it was more than 700. But op, they look great.

I could never pay that much for something that doesnt serve much purpose but it does look great. And the solid rings look a million times better than that beaded look imo

Thanks....add shipping and you're closer to $800. Yeah....it's more cosmetic than anything but the way they were before probably annoyed me more than anything. For me....it had to be done.

I'd love to see a V4 without the blackout. It's starting to get played out I think.

No doubt they look great though!

Thanks. Blackout isn't a must but if you got black grills and wrapped your window trim black....it makes sense to carry that through to the headlights. If you're keeping the chrome then there's no real need to blackout IMO.

I got piano black grills coming and wrapping the window trim, mirrors, and roof gloss black Saturday.

Mine was more mainly cause i'm an E90 too. The E90 headlights are much harder to do than the E92 since they can't be baked open

Maybe....depending when he finished them. If they were just done before he sent the teaser he'll probably wait till tomorrow afternoon. The sealant has to dry before he send them out.
