Did you see fifth gear rip the sh!t out of renault bulb replacement? they had a meg against a golf - for NON XENON an experienced green flag engineer took an hour to replace the meg bulb whereas the dippy presenter took 53 seconds to swap the golf bulb, while drinking a cup of tea. Renault even say in the manual "you may need to contact a dealer" and the price to change a bulb? 50+ ... For Xenon you have to take the bumper off but they didn't say if other manufacturers were better in this respect. Renault's excuse was "it was so we could get 5 stars NCAP" - yeah but the golf had 5 stars too!!! Real answer is a) their engineers are less talented and b) they ran out of dev time/money
