Default Holy crap!

so I'm looking to see how much the replacement parts are for my focus (Fender, Headlight, and bumper)..

$750.60 before it even gets painted! WHY do headlights cost over 450 bucks?!

I wish I could ghetto rig the headlight (all 3 places to bolt it to the car are busted), but oh well.. I'm going to call the 2 local junkyards and find out the cost of the parts (and hope that they have it in blue).

Headlamps for my Volvo were $450. Looking in Junk yards is a good Idea. (although, my mechanic gave me some for $40) Buy Aftermarket.

you can get a aftermarket assembly from rock auto for 141.79 plus tax..

it shows to be for a focus sedan.. not sure if it's the same as yours

It's an '08, and it's not covered under warranty?
