Only slightly used before my poor 2005 wagon met an untimely demise. I replaced it with an E91 so have no need for the book. Would love for it to have a good home and be well used in someone else's...

Have a good body shop give you an estimate. No one can tell by a photo or two, that's why we call it "hidden damage".
The previous posts bring up some other great points for you to deal with.

Looks like it was bad timing. Diagnosed as the module, not ballast or ignitor. Little over $450.00 for the part from the dealer. :(

Unfortunately the need for a working headlight precludes me from...

Could the dealer have caused a headlight issue?

Question Indy shop in Twin Cities?

Ayone know of a good independent service shop in the Twin Cities? Particularly on the Eastern side, like Stillwater. Would rather stay on this side of the Cities and avoid the dealer when possible.
