Mein Auto: 2007 335xi
Expensive New Headlight

Good Afternoon,
I just took my 2007 335xi in because my headlight was flickering. I was surprised when the cost of replacing my driver's side headlight turned out to be $467.00. I am starting to think that I need to find a better place to get my car serviced in Rockville, MD.
Am I off base, or does that seem like too much to replace a bulb?
Thanks,
Mike

WTF? What kind of bulb is that? How much did VOB charge for labor?

Good Evening,
The bulb was 1 63-21-7-217-509 Bulb Xenon Light with Igniti: 074000 for 266.84. The labor charge was to replace left front headlamp unit 1627 C = 189.00

Seemed like a lot!
