i hope you have some deep pockets. it is easy to install yourself, and i'm not even sure they would do aftermarket installs like that for you. regardless, it's not worth the hour or 2 of labor they would ream you for.

Its the stock AE bulb... guess mine burnt out on the driver side. Hahaha mate Im trying to get out of 10th grade with a competitive GPA before I worry about my pocket size. Maybe if I see one of the very knowledgeable at C&C they can give me a hint on putting this bulb in.

It's so insanely easy....If you make it up to C&C come find me and I'll show you how it's done. Will take literally 5 minutes tops.

EDIT: Wait, you've got a 325i? I think the headlight assembly is different than what I've got. Should still be pretty straight-forward though.

Been there, Done that more times than I cared to. Several DIY on here is how I learned but def Not a 5 min job. Last one I did was about 1.5 hrs or so car needs to go up, remove wheel, undo the wheel lining, undo torx screws holding it in. Pain was putting back in and not seeing where screws line up rather just feeling around for them. With a lil determination you can do it...Good Luck man.

It sounds like my bov is letting out a hum at idle, no C&C for me, going to investigate and nurse this hangover.

Edit: Removed and re-installed the charge pipe and i'm not hearing it, might head that way after Arsenal vs Liverpool.
