Awesome. Can't wait to see them. When you get the lights, can you take a photo of the resealing job?

Just sent mine over also. Had an issue with one of the halos and Luis has been super helpful getting it resolved.

The lights look amazing, plus the customer service so far has been top-notch.

Glad to hear they are doing this. I asked about this about a year ago and they said they weren't doing it for the 1ers, to low a volume or something.

Ok who exactly is this guy and can you give his contact info like a number or email? I'm interested to see if maybe he could do a tail light project I'm interested in.

Oh me oh my. What's the best way to get in touch with OSS/is anyone else interested? I'd have to ship mine....Hm I wonder if this can be done start to finish for under 1K. Labor for headlight removal and reinstallation+shipping, I have no idea how one goes about removing the headlights, I never fiddle around in there. Don't mean to steer your thread off track OP, please take as many pictures as is possible when you get 'em back

you can contact luis via sales@ossdesigns.net .

They have a facebook page also, but he prefers email for faster communication.

regarding removing the headlights, it's very straightforward in my opinion. the bumper needs to come off, which consists of some fasteners up top (same ones you undo to change kidney grilles), some fasteners under the bumper (about six or so), three screws on each side of the car that bolt the fender liner to the inside of the car (so you can peel the fender liner back) then a screw or two inside the fender liner that bolts the edge of the bumper to the front quarter panels.

once you get the bumper off, removing the headlights is very straightforward- just look for the screws holding them on and undo it.

just make a note that if you have headlight washers, pop the top caps off before removing the bumper.

I took my headlights off in about 30 mins
All you have to take the bumper off and then there are 4 screws to take off the lights. I think you can definetly do it for less than $1k.
Should be getting the lights tonight and will take pictures tomorrow

Great review: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=374002

3 series folks have had access a lot longer than us. From communications with Luis he seems to be very customer focused and his work is top notch. Can't wait to get my custom set in a few weeks

The pricing listed above was for the standard rings and blackout but Luis wants to include the Center LED modification which will have a new pricing .
The pricing will be :

1-2 sets $649+shipping

3+ sets $600+shipping

10+ sets. $550+shipping
