    Looked simple enough to me - and all in just over 6 minutes. Shouldn't cost more than a few quid...LOL

    In all seriousness that is one of the reasons I went from BMW to Mercedes and skipped Audi. They use a plethora of different parts for the same model of car that are slightly different and not interchangeable. My boss was back at the dealer 3 times until he got the correct headlamp for an A6. It cost him over £250 whereas a complicated twin lamp job for my 5 series (with switchable Left & Right hand drive) was £56 back in the day.

    It's almost guaranteed that the phone would ring several times whilst doing that job.
