number plate lights
i have a e46, and the rear number plate lights are fused. i took the car to the bmw service center, and they claim that i have to buy a new holder get it painted, and get the new bulbs in there.. is that true? cuz he said that he has seen that in a couple of cars, not many and in all cases, they sold them a new holder, as the actual bulb holder gets corroded. please let me know how this works? or can ijust get the bulb replaced.
