Oem angel eye bulb

Can someone shed some lights on the cost of the oem bulb? My e92 per-lci angel eyes bulb is blown. I just rang BMW and they said it cost $70.25 for just the bulb? Can I get it cheaper or can I get a replacement bulb from Osram bulb that hopefully can be bought from repo?

I was thinking of going lux but its too much to pay for lights. So I just want to replace the oem bulbs.

Thx

Yeah apparently they are pretty damn good, not quite as good as the LUX, but for the money they are suppose to be good. I don't have a pic, but do a search on here and you will find heaps!

Other then that there maybe someone here willing to give you their oem bulbs that they have kicking around (I'm keen to hang onto mine in case I ever part the car out)

tell me about it! I initially wanted to hold off replacing the H8, but that warning sound was driving me crazy, so I decided to fork out the $$$ to make it shutup!

Just want to share something with you guys....I drove by a service dealer hoping that they will change my bulb coz I still have warranty. So I pretended I didn't know what to do. Spoke to this gentlemen and he told me sir, your lights are out. So I said yes it just came up, he told me he can change it for me for $120 and can be done then and there. 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!

I know how it feels! Hence why I just had to get it done !

I bought repco bulbs for half the price and it is a bit brighter than oem! So I quite happy.
