Best place to get a whole new headlight

So my headlight back cover wasn't reassembled appropriately the last time a bulb was changed, and it got corroded inside. Now, the adaptive motors and Xenon low beam don't work.

The shop that last replaced the bulb agreed to do the work for free. I just need to get the part. The cheapest I've found is realoem.com... Does anyone know of any cheaper way to replace the passenger side headlight?

Also, the shop isn't sure they're going to be able to program the headlight to move with the steering. Anyone know how to do that?

Best place I found

The headlights for adaptive are split by a 3/11 build date, mine was before this date and my part number was 63127164931, which I remember being the same for a 128 too.This site will help you with a Valeo (OES) unit if your car was built before 3/11. They can't if after date. http://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/6072...FRQkgQod99wAvQ I needed the drivers side which I'm receiving tomorrow with a new control module too.
If you want the OEM option here's a dealer that's cheaper than Realoem.

You may only needed the control module and not a headlight. My Indy shop can program the module to the car, so dealership is not the only place for coding.

Thanks. Apparently, it's corroded on the inside of the headlight, and i have noticed moisture on the inside, so i think i need to replace the whole thing.
