Oh man you scared the poop out of me!!!

I just spent about 5 hours installing the Saleen HIDs and the first thing I see when I get on the computer tonight is "Saleen recall" and just about dumped a load in my shorts.

While I am relieved this is not for my items thanks all the same for posting it - I am sure it will be helpful info for someone.

:)

Bummer!

If you have a SC Saleen car please have this fixed ASAP and drive slow to the dealer!

Know a guy who's hood came off on the strip (~140 MPH), through the windshield and glass everywhere, face, eyes, etc! NOT COOL!
