Leased e92...Messing With Headlights?

Really interested in messing with the headlights a bit for my m3, only problem is that it's leased. Anyone know if I can screw around with the headlights and not get in trouble? (I want to send them to OSS Designs if anyone is wondering)

knowing how the lease return inspections work, i doubt anyone will really even notice that you played with the lighting. the question is do you want to spend between 600-800 bucks on OSS lights when, at the end of the day, you're going to be returning the car.

Don't quote me on this, but you should be ok. That's in my opinion though. If you browse around the forums, you'll see that there are lots of members with leases that have done modifications that are far more serious and costly than the headlights. Also, headlights are practically plug and play, with the exception of the housing being opened and rings changed. If I were you, I'd do the OSS, then before your lease is due, trade with another member for a stock set.

There's also the easier route and just change the bulbs - LUX, AngeliBright, etc.

It should be pretty easy to find someone who's willing to switch with you and some cash.

Okay perfect, I'm planning on having the housing painted black ("blacked out" option), the bright angel eyes and corner delete. Saw these headlights on a space grey just like mine, haven't stopped daydreaming about them since
