Buy HID in Canada

One of my HID headlights burnt out the other day. High beam still works but would like to get it replaced. Does anyone know where I can buy an HID headlight in Canada without having to order it from pelican or suncoast or anywhere from the states. Would like to do this as quickly as possible so would like to source locally. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks

Outrageous Canadian Prices

I called around and the only place that had it in stock was NAPA autoparts and is over twice the price of the same bulbs in the U.S.... I know prices have been that like between the countries since the bigging of time but with the U.S. struggling the way it has for so long it's starting to really chap my ass!!

I would have rather sourced locally because I have some night driving to do soon and would rather have the full light effect on the road but even bimmerspecialist.com/Canada with shipping, 1 bulb is the same cost as a H7 kit (bulb, wires, ballast x 2) from pelican. Canadian retailers are missing out on opportunities or they're getting bent over like the rest of us. Either way, everyone is losing. Sorry this turned into a rant.

Either way, I am going with a U.S. retailer if for no other reason than to get twice as much for my money.
