Need Opinions - OSS Designs eyebrow or not?

Hey guys, i have a spot reserved for OSS and I am trying to figure out what looks better and want some opinions. I'm mixed between the two. My car is jet black, going with a full satin blackout, V4 rings...Not raptor style.

(ALL PICTURES BELONG TO OSS DESIGNS, I take no credit for any of these pictures).






(These three belong to forum members found off google, again I take no credit for any of these pics).

Again, The eyebrow looks cheap (unless it can light up like the newer cars like the M3 and M4)

Since you are going V4 circle rings, definitely go without the brow.

If you were doing raptors (which still look odd to me on the E9x) they need a *light up eyebrow* in order to even look good, and need an eyebrow period to even be made.

Thanks for the replies. 0/5 on the eyebrows, I changed my order to no eyebrows. Thanks for the advice!

I actually like it, but only with the raptor style. I dig how aggressive it looks.

I've heard from multiple people the raptor eyes look awkward in our headlight housing due to the curve at the bottom of the E9X housing, and the raptor eye does not fit it very well. I haven't seen one in person, so I just stuck to the tried and true of the round V4.

I'm 100% fan of oem look on headlights. I like the brow, opaque white to keep it clean and oem like. Light up would be great but even without I still think it looks great.

But agree I think brow is best matched with raptors.

You should definitely take credit for all of those pictures. And sell them.
