Why ppl are so lazy and post these posts?? Is it too complicated to use search??? Plus they dont even specify what model it is? Tons of posts about it: parking light, angel eyes etc... Next time let's create new posts like "my tire is low on air, do I need to check it for leaks?" more posts like this and I won't be reading forum.

What's even worse are the members who lack the respect to use proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar. There will always be new members who are not familiar will forum etiquette, and there will also be people who lack general social etiquette. No one is making you read this forum.

So what's wrong with the grammar, spelling??
You don't realize that there are few ppl who do lots of things with their cars themselves and can help and explain pretty much how everything works in your e65 and therefore save tons of $ which is very useful and valuable info. And when they see posts like this..... It's kinda ....not interesting. If those ppl stop reading forum, it will become useless. Understood???

I'm not a kindergarten teacher; I don't have time to explain. I'm sure there's a forum for stuff like this. Just make sure you search before you post.

The E65/66 board has many fine technical contributors, many of which I have seen answer the same question more than once using appropriate (for a luxury car forum) grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

The point I am trying to make is that there is a nice way to say things, and there is an inappropriate way to say things. I like to mix things up, but I will never interfere with a technical conversation or make a new member/member with a few posts feel unwelcome.

Why not be a dear and make a contribution to the site. I don't know what the fees are for "sponsors" to post, but if you want to continue offering your "commercial" services here on our board I suggest you do so.

Dude, are you ok? If you check my posts you'll notice that I do help everyone with serious issues for free, even though it cost me a lot to diagnose first.
I don't offer anything commercial here. The point is that not everything can be done by regular ppl, it's a high risk even to try. What if you burn your harness or your car, just bc you didn't do a good job and didn't notice a tiny short? You'll hate me, right?

I think you are in luck here and may be able to do it yourself for the cost of the part. As 1bad said, the bumper needs to be removed on the 750 but not on the prefacelift 745. I had a turn signal blow on my 750 and the dealer charged me almost $300 labor and $5 for the bulb. For reference, not covered under CPO.
