In for Service

Took the Escape in for service this morning, routine oil change and inspection, all free of charge since I have the maintenance plan.

Asked if they could adjust my headlights, since I put in new HID lights. Tried to charge me 129 bucks to do so. I said get outta here and give me a call when it is ready.

Thinking maybe the HID lights may have been a premature decision. They look nice, but the light output seems to be all over the place. I read somewhere on here that the headlight housing is not meant for HID lights, which makes sense.

Might try to sell the HID lights and just upgrade to a brighter bulb like Sylvania Silverstars??

As for the HID's slavrenz summed it up nicely, softly, gently, politely and without any ounce of dielectric compound!!!
I feel the same way as slavrenz. I'm not a fan of any HID lighting, aftermarket or factory. In my area there are a lot of intersections at hill crests. Whenever there is someone with HID's on the opposite side it absolutlely blinds me. I have to wait for them to go or try to block thier lights with my hand or arm. I'm having more and more issues with my sight as I get older and things like this aren't helping...
