Here are some details and pictures:

Service purchased:
- DTM Corona White Halos
- Repaint inner housing and projector shrouds

Stock headlight:



DTM Corona


Were they able to rewire back to the OEM specs? I, as well as no one, was not able to find out how to make it wire back up so that the switches work with the settings. Mine right now is tapped into the SOS.

Do you mean no one has been able to figure out how to wire the DRL's to turn on like they normally would?
I though OSS design figured it out finally?

So just an update to everyone. He has had my lights since the beginning of October (over a month now) to repair the paint and a few other things. Some days he will respond, some days he won't. But it has basically all been excuses. I still haven't got my lights, the body shop has been waiting for two weeks so they can fit the bumper and start painting, and they just started charging me storage fees because I'm holding up space and they can't move any further on my car without the lights. If I could go back I would have just bought stock lights and not have messed with this. Also, he did inform me that he is no longer going to be doing this business as he has taken on other ventures

Is it safe to say OSS is still the only player in this headlight game we have?

I will personally try to reach out to him over the next few days. I don't know his address anymore but I don't think it needs to come to that tbh. I know people have money on the line and I would be pissed too but we all know life happens to all of us. Maybe he is just caught up with personal/work/life matters. I will update this thread when I find out what's up.

sorry to see that written up, seems like a convient excuse for scamming money?

Was he a sponsor vendor here at e90post? if so i think e90post might even be on the hook for the vendor running away with the money if push came to shove in small claims court... since this site makes a profit from vendors and the like to ban ppl who don't pay the vendor fee, it reasons that e90post is "vetting" the vendors and could be liable for allowing the site to be used for a criminal act without proper over sight.

hell i can pay the fee here to be a vendor and then sell ppl deposit money on a "new product" that will add 5hp to your car just by adding some seafoam into your crank case. i'll sell it for $50 with a deposit of $5 and make a killing when i skip town because "life happened"

Send him a PM. I do not think your deposit is gone. I thought I was not going to get my headlights back, it just took him a while. He had to go out of the country from what he told me and is backed up. Not taking any new customers but working on all the current orders.
