Hi Mikendale. Is this a high intensity discharge bulb? If it is, they run a very high voltage. Improper service procedures can result in burning out the ballast which is also very expensive. These systems are very expensive to repair. Be thankful you do not have a BMW.
Sometimes there are faster ways to replace parts, but reputable mechanics will follow the published service procedures. If there are shortcuts, there is a reason the manufacturer does not want them to be used. Your mechanic will likely not try to cut corners that you are willing to do to your own car. We tend to want the job done properly when someone else is doing the work for us, but we are willing to compromise when it is our own time, skinned knuckles, or frustration that is involved.
