    Okay i just got the Spyder CCFL projector headlights. I know they are easy to install but I dont have ANY tools so my buddy is doing it at his motorcycle shop today during work. I am leaving on a road trip in a few days that's why he's doing it during work (he's a good friend)

    I want to give him money for doing it (he doesn't have a lot) but im not sure how much to give?

    WHAT IS AN APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF $$$ TO GIVE MY GOOD FRIEND FOR INSTALLING MY HEADLIGHTS FOR ME??????

    Money would be better (he has big child support payments, doesnt make a ton of money, and is a very close friend)

    Go to a sports bar or pub for a burger/wings/etc and a few drinks and be willing to help him if he needs it. Swapping headlights isn't a hard task so you're paying for the gesture more than anything.

    EDIT, just saw your other post and agree with Brock, $50 would be plenty to help him out.
