I just purchaced a 1995 525i touring wagon and the 3rd break light located on the tail gate glass under the spoiler has some bulbs burned.

teh dealer wants $187 for the bank of 24 bulbs already mounted and soldered in the printed circuit board or each bulb for $6.05

the bulb soeems to be a somple part, element type of bulb, 12volts, 4 wats two leads. does nayone knows another source for these bulbs, or a less expensive light?

You might be able to use the part number and find them cheaper.
