    $400 dollar headlight.....(subaru)

    Ok so i'm out driving my Scooby and some idiot stops short..
    I jam the breaks and get off with only tapping him a little on the rear,
    The guy gets out, checks his f150 bumper, and suprise.. no damage.
    I on the other hand have slight fractures in the front right headlight of my car. So i figure its only a lense.. no big deal.

    I take it in for service, and they tell me I have to buy an entire new headlight for like $400 dollars...

    Is this a joke? Am i getting scammed? Can't I just buy a new lense for the headlight...

    My Impreza is a 2002 so it has the nice rounded headlights that are hard to find.

    Total = $746....Carputer = Priceless

    im afraid to say that is about how much they are. This is because A.) supply and demand B.) the lense is molded with the plastic behind it, so it is all one unit. You should call around to all the dealers in your area to see which can give you the better deal because that is the dealers set price, not subaru's.

    I hate it when morons do that kind of crap.

    One time, I was driving on a busy street, and I had my date and her sister in the car. The guy in the SUV in front of me slams on the brakes, why I don't know. I barely tap him. He gets out, looks at his car, looks at my car, looks at me, and gets back in his car.

    Fortunately it all worked out. Later on, my date asked, "What were you doing when he slowed down?" I replied, "I was looking at you."

    my brother backed into a chair with my old 93 camry, and broke a whole light section that was like 4 ft long, 1ft high, got it for $50 at a junkyard . Try a junkyard (altough your car is probably much newer, and cars at junkyards usually have the front end all f***ed up)

    That's a nice set of wheels you've got there, how come you don't have insurance?
    A few months ago some idiot smashed my front window, but the insurance covered it. Not to metion the two times my car was hit in the parking lot.

    I had a Lense crack on me because of a rock and i checked at a dealership and they wanted $300, the aftermarket and junk yards were a little better at $200. Good luck.
