Hi guys,

I have an alpine white e92 and will be doing the OSS upgrade in the next few days...

I'm really wanting gloss black projector housings but don't know how this will make the potential reflection from the LEDs look like.

Does anyone have any pics? Or if you went gloss black, do you regret it?

Cheers!!

Haha sorry, this was the first e92 that came to mind with a gloss black housing, just not the projector shrouds.
