the cost of dealer setting xenon present
Right now, I'm running an aftermarket hid kit with an error canceler, draws power directly from the stock 55w, no relay, and DRL turned off. No error, all working. But I would like to have the hid also turn on as DRL. I've been reading that to keep the hid running without flickering from the lower power of DRL, i would need dealer to code xenon present on the gateway and controller. My question is, how long is this process, and how much should it cost?
I called the service guy and he quoted it would cost me ~ $120 to get it recoded... but he mentioned it was on saturday and all his guys were busy so it would be costing more, and suggested for me to come on regular day and it might be less. Anyone has any idea about the price he gave me? It sounded like a simple 5 minutes job, and that the price seemed a bit excessive, no?
So if you have had yours recoded to xenon present by the dealer, please let me know how much they charged and how long it took you. Thanks!
