I was at my local ford delaer today and went over to the parts department today to find out how much it would cost to get the 2008 shelby HID headlamps. Each headlight aseembly costs 725.00, which is 1450.00 right there and you still have to buy the modules (ballasts) to power the bulb which are also probably expensive. I just said nevermind and didnt even ask for the price of the modules.
Just going to go with aftermarket HID's with a lifetime warranty for about 500.00.

Ouch! That seems a bit excessive.

According to the Ford 'Marketing Strategy and Mix Recommendations' list under the 'Key Options Rates' section, Ford expects that 15% of the 2008 orders to have HID Headlamps.

I ordered mine with HID and my dealer told me that it is not shown as an option on the Canadian cars (yet!). I even gave him the order number specified as '51H' and he still could not find it. Maybe they are slated to be added to the later versions of the 2008 vehicles bound for Canada (I'm number 12 of 12 coming to this small market SVT dealer).

I'll forego the HIDs though if I can get my car sooner than later.

I want my Shelby!
