Yes, the '07-'09 GT500 headlights are entirely different. I'd question the competence of any dealer body shop that wasn't aware of that, and didn't inform you up front...

About $235- each for the standard halogen bulb ones. (Cheap compared to the factory GT500 HID ones which run $1100-$1200 ea...)

And this was a dealer doing the work?
Stealership Body Shops are never very
good. There are there to lull the customer
into having the satisfaction of knowing
the dealership has a way to fix damage
on their brand new vehicle.
Be it not very good work most of the time.

Break out the Vaseline...

Stock hood works fine, I rolled with mine while my supersnake hood was being worked on, looked great.
