Debating going with OSS

so I think I'm going with the OSS but here is the question.

Fast forward a year or so maybe a little longer how easy ya'll think it would be to find somebody to trade their stock xenon headlights for the OSS and cash? I may eventually trade in the car for the F30 but I can't stand these stock yellow lights.

The alternative is LUX, but to spend $300 for a solution that I know may still bother me (outer ring not lightly up evenly) is also kinda meh.

I had no trouble finding a swap back in 2011, but who knows now that most of the LCI rings are white LED...

I think the resale would be good. I've been keeping an eye out for used oss or the like.

Haha I'm doing the transaction now. Trading my headlights with some key with OSS. =)

It's pretty rare but occasionally they do pop up in the FS section. Just gotta be fast about it.

IMO, there shouldn't be a debate, you're in Florida. I tried swaping out the bulbs with other bulbs and LEDs and still wasn't satisfied. Do it right the first time and be done with it. Drive to Luis and let him do yours. I drove ten hours to drop my car off when I lived in the Panhandle. It was worth every second and penny.

I saw your thread and chuckled. I posted a feeler thread because I might be parting out my car for the new stingray and I think I received almost a dozen pm's by the first week.

You can see my headlights in my mod journal.
