My car is “man’s best friend” (I don’t do dogs or pets). It serves me well with no complaints.
Over the years, he/she has to park outside half the year facing all kinds of sun and severe weather without any eye (headlight) protection. And being that it’s a senior citizen in “car years” it has developed cataracts. The eye (headlight) lenses have clouded over, not just lately, but several times.
I’ve polished and I’ve sanded, and I’ve used miracle methods to permanently remove the cataracts, but it’s short lived, they return in a few months. The tired old eyes (headlights) were weathered and checked.
Recently the driver side low beam bulb burned out, blinding my best friend in the left eye. I was about to go buy a new bulb, actually 2 (“How far behind can the right one be, I thought?”).
Instead, I rewarded my best friend by logging onto Rock Auto, finding headlights in stock, at reasonable prices (about 100 bucks for the pair with shipping) and placed an order. I ordered late Wednesday with standard shipping and the FedEx guy delivered them before noon on Saturday. They were each in well made boxes, designed to protect them and those boxes were inside a larger box with bubble wrap in it. The outer box and inner boxes arrived totally undamaged! Rock Auto Rocks! I’ve used them many times and I’ve never been disappointed!
The headlight complete assemblies came with new Phillips bulbs, low beam, high, beam, and t/signal/side marker bulbs, as advertised! I carried them to the car and had them installed in literally less than 10 minutes. The whole car looks better! He/she can see, again! And I can see the road!
What bone have you thrown to your daily driver best friend, lately?
