How much does repairing a rear right brake light cost?

Mine just went out for an unknown reason. Was fine, parked to go play basketball, came back turned car on, woop, red light and verified it was out with friend.

How much should I look for when I get estimates back from people for repair costs?

Nevermind these super helpful folks...

Start here: http://www.ehow.com/how_7314455_chan...-e46-330i.html

It's not specific for an M3 but the operations are pretty much the same.

In the future, keep in mind a google search can yield some fast results.

Well you are pretty much fvcked because it is the right one. A shop is going to charge $1700-$2000 just to fix it.





Really bro? Either change the bulb or get LED tails.
