Little did I know they were secretly thieves replacing OEM parts with cheap knockoffs. Mechanics being one of my hobbies, I caught them at it. They gave me a new headlight assembly which I found was a mislabeled Durango headlight assembly. When I went to return it they refused to give me the correct parts. I casually mentioned to a lawyer friend on one of my beats what they had done.

I now not only have racing headlights, but a waver from the city to have said headlights and that dealership? Well there's an empty lot there now.

Unfair business practices have a way of sneaking up on the perpetrators.
Let me get this straight, you hit a deer and when the dealer was nice enough to give you a new headlight (see durango warranty excerpt below) you complain of unfair business practice and claim to have driven them out of business, for the dealer doing you a solid. Then on top of you abuse your status as a civil servant to get a special waiver to have illegal lights... Forum rules and general politeness prevent me from saying what kind of move that was.

and the excerpt from the Durango warranty:
