sweet adaptive headlight failure :(

so hit a good size puddle today and now my adaptive headlight feature went to shit .... but my low beams and high beams and angel eyes work just fine?\


so now i have to revert my alpine hid kit back to stock for a bit so i can take the car in for service without my warranty being voided... fun

I'm sure all of us would rather it be on BMW's dime than our own

Maybe I missed the point.... I thought the HID headlight setup was standard on the 135i. The factory headlights look and work great.
Why would you mess with this and take any chance voiding warranty???

Really? I for one don't expect BMW to pay for my mistakes. I know that a lot of people don't really "get" integrity, though.
