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!
