Knowing how much it cost to buy the bulb from BMW itself $50 for a 2 minute job is outrageous!! I said why so expensive. He told me its a special bulb, so I then ask him does he know what bulb is it, he just said special bulb reluctant to tell me what bulb. I was acting dumb so I asked him does this cover under warranty, he said no(fair enough). I ask him how much it cost for the bulb he told me $100, so insisted me to let them to it since they can do it on the spot. I told him no worries I was passing by and didn't have time.

10 min drive later to nearest repco and paid $40 for the bulb, and loan they flat head screwdriver and replace the bulb on my own! 2 minutes later Job done! Save my self money!

Moral of the story is don't trust what the dealers say until u have done all your research as they are always there to bite you!

A few weeks ago I bought a pack of 2 from a company on ebay. The bulbs are from Korea and were $28 the pair including postage. The service was excellent and they arrived within a couple of days. When I opened the box, the bulbs looked blue in colour. The description on the box said they were for "offroad" or "show" use only. Not happy! However, I emailed the company and they replied immediately saying they shone white in use and were police approved. They also said they would gladly refund my money if I wasn't happy. So I replaced the faulty bulb, easy to do, just fiddly. To my surprise, the new bulb shone bright white and the oem bulb shone yellow in comparison. So, I replaced the oem bulb as well. In summary, I'm very happy and for $28, a great deal. A month later, still good!
