My left light went out and when I replaced the bulb it still didn't illuminate! Was told that it would cost a couple hundred to repair (new wiring). I've seen several of these lights out on the same side of these models.

This the second time since new. The light plug itself shows signs of heat. Now I need to change out the plug.

Left DRL went out and replace bulb 3 times and each time the bulb only lasted several days. I did note that the plug in had a burnish color.
