Drivers side factory HID lamp out...still
 
As of today my dealer has had my car more than me because of the headlight issue. They replaced the bulb first, then the TPM, now they are waiting on the headlamp assembly. Anyone else have this issue?

how long you going to put up with this nonsense? did they order your wheel ? I'm still waiting for the answer on mine,hopefully i"ll hear by tommorrow, I think they didn't have any and figure most people won't know the difference. good luck to you and i hope you get it back soon. :(:(:(

It will be fine. Just a bit frustrated right now. The new wheel should be here this week.
The dealership has bent over backwards to help.

can you hear the ballast click on and try to ignite the bulb? Probably just a bad ballast in the lamp.....

I am sick. My dealer just called to tell me my Jeep was hit by a tow truck over the weekend. Reason number 438 why I am glad i did not order an srt8. I am sick at this happening to a $49,000 car. I would be homicidal for a 60K car.

I would be asking for a new car right about now...

that sucks, I would want them to just touch up the quarter panel chip then repair/repaint or replace the bumper. In order to fix that quarter and do it right, they gotta blend the base coat a hair then clear the whole rear quarter for it to be proper repair.

In most regards I agree with getting brand new parts, but the thing is if you get a brand new bumper and don't need paint work on the quarter panels, you are risking a possibility of the paint not matching 100% due to a butt-match. Whereas a repair you can blend the paint before the area where the bumper and quarter meet and clear the whole bumper. There are pros and cons to every decision.

Great point.
I have a shop here that I have a lot of faith in. I will keep you guys posted.
