My right front low beam went out. I called the dealer they said 300.00 dollars just for the bulb. I went by Auto Zone and they have a HID bulb for 13 bucks. So whats the deal? Does the dealer sell electronics with the bulb? Also it looks like the whole front fascia has to be removed just to change the bulb. Has anyone delt with this yet? I was told my basic exteneded warranty does not cover the bulbs.

While $300.00 sounds hi, $13.00 sounds LOW. Are you sure Auto Zone wasn't trying to sell you a ghetto HID look-alike bulb?

I know you can get HID bulbs for a lot less than $300.

I am sure the AutoZone was pricing the non-HID bulb for $13.
Maybe $300 included the install which requires the bumper removal.
Check the FAQ for bumper removal.

I don't know any Service contract that covers light bulbs.

DDM tuning will sell you a set of d1s bulbs in what ever color temp you want for less tha $100. Still have to remove the bumper though. I have their 55 watt kit in my fog lights. It looks like landing lights on a 747. Ballasts and kit was $110 shipped.

I bought my HIDs from this guy on ebay and haven't had one problem with them it is a much cheaper solution and unlike most that you kits you buy from ebay they don't glitch or freak out. And four other friends of mine have them for about a year and we are allperfect. You could buy headlights and fog lights shipped cheaper than you buy the headlights. Just a thought
