Hi there! Luis here. The OSSDesigns story began in 2004. I purchased an E46 and the itch to modify was in full effect. I modified my ride in my mom's garage and the modding crew took notice. In 2007, my friend took a chance and let me modify the headlights on his E92 Pre LCI. I kept it simple and classic: I did a build with V2 Angels and a blackout. It wasn’t long before local and out of state BMW enthusiasts caught wind of what I did, and the headlight modding continued.

In 2008, OSSdesigns was transferred to a bigger workspace in a friend’s auto body shop. There I was able to design and manufacture the Raptor DTM rings for retrofitting. In 2013, with the help of my partner Patricia, OSS expanded to its own workshop and welcomed other members to the team. At our new shop I was able to envision and recreate a version of BMW’s iconic renderings and brought the Icons to life! (Now called Icons V1).  

By 2014, OSSdesigns was known on the national and international level. Our builds were featured in auto trade magazines, online forums and received high praise in trade shows such as SEMA and Bimmerfest. OSSdesigns did not only become popular in the BMW world, but expanded to other brands such as Audi, Lexus, Mercedes, and Lamborghini.
