Surprisingly good deal

One of the things I had to buy for car repair this week was a new headlight for the Malibu. I found that the going rate on eBay was about $28 shipped. That seemed like a great price but when it got here it was even better - it came with both headlight bulbs already installed. The cheapest version of these bulbs go for $12 at local stores.

I was at the auto parts store just before coming home to find it there, but didn't buy the bulb I needed because I hadn't written down the number. Just as well, as it turns out.

The headlight seems to be absolutely fine, a perfect match though obviously from different molds (slightly different corner rounding and mold seams on the inside, identical looking on the outside, all the mounting points and everything are in the same places).
