Headlight bulb replacement

Post by jackronner »

Having just healed from my latest bulb replacement, I was frustrated and amazed to just learn that Concord BMW in the Bay Area installs them for free after purchase!  It's worth the trip if you're within 50 miles.  Now that's what I call service.

Took my bike for an oil & filter service at BMW Sunderland. The bike was presented to them will all lights/bulbs functioning. When picking the bike up, switched on the ignition (without starting) to find a headlight bulb warning symbol on the dash. If I purchased a "BMW" bulb, the dealers offered to fit it FOC. At £12.85 for a bulb, I politely said, leave it, I'll do it when I get home.

Got a spare bulb out of the cupboard in the garage & replaced the RHS dipped beam.

Looking for a replacement spare bulb, came across CarParts4less, https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/car-parts Ordered a bulb for £1.46, inc. free P&P.
