Never rains, but it pours! :crying:

After the carry on with my rear lights, I had a dipped beam go on the drivers side. :frown:
Into MB Glasgow .... yes they had a new bulb but couldn't fit it .... Paid the ghastly sum of £110 :surprise: for the new one ...... drove over to MB Giffnock .... their mechanic (having swapped bits side to side) then informs me it's not the bulb but the control box that sits beneath it .... Back to Glasgow and change the bulb for the control box after parting with a further £300 :surprise::surprise: ..... back to Giffnock and sit about for 2 hours waiting for it to be fitted. :crying:

Shouldn't complain at the prices really, as I had two "free" cups of coffee and 6 bourbon creams whilst I waited, and at least I've got lights again. :smile:

Those control boxes are such a ripoff.
I had to replace one of mine a few weeks ago and I nearly had heart failure when the parts guy gave me the price!.
I said I only needed one!
I upgraded my bulbs at the same time to 6500K and they look much better the the oem ones.
