Most used car for sale descriptions are copy-paste jobs which were not proof read or checked against the actual vehicle.

Again, very much appreciate the help. You all saved me ~$750 and 1 additional week of driving without a headlight.
I hope you didn't pay for (4) side marker bulbs, new tires, or alignment from that place. Just on The Principle Of Cluelessness: "If you can't fix the headlight how am I to trust you to mount tires correctly?"

HID are funny things. Sometimes one burns out early, the other never. Sometimes both go within a week of each other. Whatever happens you are ready for it now!

There is a chance the new will burn out again, quickly. Then question whether you touched the glass or let it touch anything on installation? If so, buy a new bulb and try again. If not, then maybe one more try with a new bulb and if it goes too then it is time for a ballast.

Halogen bulbs are equally sensitive to dirt or finger oil on the glass.
