final total came out to be a little under $11,400 ...
the shop broke the mounting tab on my left xenon so i got a brand new one installed
so car seems fine (except for my door's weather stripping isn't 100% sealed ... i hear excess wind noise on the freeway and i can see that it doesn't sit flush against the body.. so i'll be taking it in next week to fix)
but now my back's really acting up... can't even enjoy a nice drive in my car because my back hurts so much
i wanna go find that bastard and kick his a$$ .. maybe that'll make me feel better
