Question HID Bulbs: Low Beams & Fog Lights

I went to local place where they do these type of install and they are charging me $150 for the Low Beams and another $150 for the Fog Lights + $80/hr on the install, the guy said it should take him 1 hr or so, .....

So i'm looking at $400-$450 after tax for this install. Is this right??? Am I getting ripped off here??? What do you guys suggest.

Crestwood1001 is an unknown quantity at this point
Yes your being ripped off big time, you can get both kits for half that and do the install yourself. Its very easy. Google how to install hid's, its more or less plug and play, hardest part is finding somewhere to mount the blasts

Re: HID Bulbs: Low Beams & Fog Lights

I wish HID came as a standard option no matter what trim level you purchased. I like how they still believe it's a luxury option only when it should be entitled for all.
