    Order off eBay or intl site if not available locally.

    That price is way to high, does it include labour, maybe its a vehicle that needs the bumper off to access the globes, even then its crazy?

    My story..... wifes Benz also had a headlamp failure So I removed the bulb and took it to Merc.... R2850.00 Sir plus VAT..... (Each ) Ha Ha Ha.....sorry but she will have to drive during the day from now....
    So I went to Midas showed them the Xenon lamp (it is a D1S 35watt) They said sure, we have a Philips lamps and it's R1800.00 (Ummm....no ways) Luckily the friendly man behind the counter said to me...just go to China Mall and get the same there.

    Which I did and showed the Chinese shop owner the lamp. No problem, how many, was his reply....?
    Ermmmm.....price each.....? R300.00 each Yes...that was 15 months ago and still no problem to date.

    If it is 4 HID and/or LED globes it is not a typo. I was also quoted a few grand for a CLK 63 headlight globes. Bought one from Autozone for R670 ans a month later the other one as well. I think they are still in the car - 4 years later.

    So I took your advice and found the 2 globes I need at Midas
    (HELLA)
    , R1500 for both,
    Saving R8500
    It just shows, you need to shop around before paying the ridiculous prices from the agents.

    Cheers
