It'* not worth shipping it unless you have 0 mechanical aptitude. No one will sell this to you for less - my brother rhas been running a factory car audio ebay business for almost 9 yrs and was the first on ebay selling these bulbs. He'* having me offer them to the forums at discounted rates so there are no ebay fees involved.
As for a warranty - I doubt these'll burn out in less than a year. How many years did it take for the first one to burn out.
If you want to ship the radio off for a shop to replace the bulb ship it my way -I'll do the labor for $5 over the cost of the bulb. You will have to pay shipping each way, but that shouldn't be much. Should be under $40 and shipping via UPS will be the cheapest as long as you don't go to a "UPS Store" that is privately owned, but is only endorsed by UPS. They will not give you the discount for shipping to a UPS business address. Go to either a true UPS terminal or to their website. Shipping each way should be under $10, especially if going from a business address to another business, where both are regular stops for the UPS truck.
