No vendor can say there isn't any bc the car hasn't been out there long enough to do long term testing and no vendor can say, we did our research...since when? The car came out in 08, its not like they did research before it came out.

I have seen people stick HIDs in the halogen headlights, blind everyone and after 5-6 years, you see the chrome in the headlight housing burn away from the hid bulb.
And all they say is "we've never had any problem before, must be install error, bla bla bla, or this is an 'isolated case'" Like Umnitza before when a car caught on fire.
There is a reason I am leaving my car stock for the most part.
