Default 2000 Acura RL Headlight help!?

The front one went out. The dude at the shop said it's special and would cost $150. "It's not just a bulb that you take out and replace." My car's lights are pretty nice, but I highly doubt that they are HID. Am I missing something here? I'm pretty sure he's not trying to rip me off. I just don't know what the special bulb is. Any clues?Thanks for your time. Sorry for any typos.OK, I'm pretty sure they are HID now, after double checking. Now my question is, could I just replace them with like...some basic bulbs to save money?

If it is HID. It could be that cost. They can be real pricey. Some as high as $600 for some cars. Probably not a rip-off.

you need to replace them with another HID bulb...if you need to replace the bulb and ballast that would almost validate 150 bucks, but you should be able to replace a single HID bulb for like 50-60 bucks. I dont think theres a cheap bulb replacement...
