    Other brands are oneighty, TRS xB, and I think tere is another company/product called orbs or something. Orbs may just be oneightys product. I'm not sure on that last one.
    Very informative post.

    this is correct. the hardware is the same. lightmodz got a jump because of the labor involved. if it were an easy task (not thats its really difficult) people could do it at home. but it does take finesse, and thats why prices are so high

    I like the LS3 complete angel eye look at the moment. It loses the aggressiveness, but it does look good.

    There are so many possibilities with coding...coding out bulb checks, raising voltage, removing PWM manipulation, retrofitting oem modules (BMW assist TCU, upgraded FRM, CIC Nav retrofit, etc), activating and deactivating values, lost goes and on and on

    Some people offer coding for free others charge. I'm not suppose to advertise so I'll stop here Click here to enlarge

    I charge if you're only getting coding done. If you also get other work done by me, I throw it in for free.

    I know people around the NY area that do it for free. I can provide that info if you guys want. I don't mind. I'm not in this too make a lot of profit but I don't want to use up my time for nothing either.

    Why do you feel OSS is by far the best?

    Why would he got OSS when he can get Lightmodz (which offer far more custom options) done locally & fitted to his car same day?

    If they both just source from Umnitza aren't they just the same thing?

    There the same exact thing. Nothing more than opening the headlight, installing rings, and painting the housing. OSS Luis can do anything Lightmodz can do, just ask him. He did a carbon fiber housing for a guy here with RGB changing rings and light bars, looked pretty cool. I have OSS so I can vouch for it's quality

    Sounds like the deciding factor is really price and location.

    Well I know OSS was the pioneer in terms of fitting aftermarket replacement rings to the E92 headlights. Then all the other companies started to follow once they were able to source the rings themselves.

    But I agree with Sticky, I think location is a big factor. Not many people can have too much down time on their cars. As long as there is a good warranty, you should be good.
