In desperate need of angel eyes

Really need to choose some angel eyes. Preferably LED. Just received bimmian's weisslicht but they look kinda unreliable... Thinking of returning them... Which vendor sells OSS lights??? I Couldn't find a proper thread...

I would recommend the Alpine HIDs. I have them in 8K and they are amazingly bright and look excellent. Plus, the customer service from Alex and his crew is amazing.

+1, HID AEs is the brightest you're going to get without going full OSS LED setup.

The WL product is a nice upgrade for the price point, but not sure what you mean by it seeming "unreliable", could you clarify?

I had something very similar (same materials, same LEDs) on my E92 328 (R.I.P.) - one of the lights died in coupla weeks: an LED just fell off.

Does OSS involve headlight disassembly...? Is it like LS3 LED kit?

OSS does require headlights to be removed and mail to Florida for modification.

Yes OSS involves custom work, I think you have to send in your headlamps.

For brightness and great customer service you can't go wrong with Alex at Alpine.

If you're looking for even light distribution and great customer service, then Tom and AiB are the way to go.
