Gosh. Things have changed since I last did "proper woodwork".

Yep, & so the dealers get to charge more. I've heard that it's an 8 hr. job to change a headlight bulb on Audi A8's !

I had reliable information that about 12 years ago an A8 headlight replacement was quoted at £2600.Not sure if the VAT was included in that figure.

The point about carrying spares is well made.Given that the EU managed to get phone charging plugs standardised,is there any reason why they couldn't insist on reasonable access to headlight bulbs?It is definitely a safety related matter and plenty of those have been imposed over the years.I used to run a car that blew a headlight bulb most winters and the miserable access meant I was always happy to pay Halfords the £5 to fit the replacement.
