I think $390 for the basics with xenon ballast, and you can go all the way to $700 if you want FXR projectors retrofitted to work with both low and hi-beam etc.

ok so i have vogtland lowering springs and i just ordered bilstein b8 sport struts and in the process or ordering bilstein rear shocks. Is there anything else i should replace aswell (bushings, mounts, bumps stops). When buying the struts most product descriptions said "For strut replacement, it is absolutely vital to also replace front bump stop". Mechanic told me that i wouldnt need anything else since my car was in pretty decent shape when i went for oil change a month ago.

Mounts for sure. Drive for a week or two then alignment. I'm lowering mine with Dinan springs. 3/4 drop, so not too bad.
