you will need to return it back to stock. Tint i can see getting waved but something such as AE aftermarket could cause you some hassle that you dont need. Not worth something you can change back to stock rather easily.

just post a fs thread with a trade (your OSS/LS3 headlights for someone's OEM headlights) + cash for your oss/ls3 headlights towards the end of your lease if you really want to get them done. of course all (if any) warranty work needed for your headlights and/or related parts during your lease is at your own risk and most likely will not be covered...

as much as I like the look of oss and ls3 AE's, I don't think the risk reward of doing them is worth it IMO. Flame suit on....
I know some say we take the same risk with AiB's, Lux8's, and HID kits, but at least if those kits go mad/malfuction, we can easily go back to stock without much hassle/headache.

good luck with your choice...

Personally since I have turned in my lease to BMW, is was easy to sell them and trade for stock headlights. It was not a hassle at all. If you worried about the headlights you might as well leave the car stock.

The OS3 kit is completely reversible. Other than the fact that they look great, that was one of the reasons that I went with the OS3 kit.

reversible with consequences
if the dealer finds out the headlight was opened then you have issues
its as reversible as any other mod i guess if you're willing to spend the money
HID/LUX/AIB is easy to take out with no issues
and no need to uninstall the headlights

You must be talking about if you take it in when your lease is up because there not going to have a problem when it comes to taken it in for service.

I did the LS3 without the blackout options on my cabrio that I traded in. BavX put it back to stock and I had no questions from the dealer.
