Advise please headlights

so, I had some moisture inside my headlights and I'm guessing it caused a short on my dynamic headlight Motor and also blew one bulb. Long story short bmw won't warranty the parts. So I'm stuck with headlights that have moisture , not a problem they will dry. Now my main concern is replacing the 2 bad stepper motor and 1 xenon control unit.. What should I do, buy the parts and replace them? Possibly look for someone selling the headlight assembly? If I should replace parts, where should I get them? Thanks

Did you do something to your headlight that's why they didn't cover it?

The infamous angle eye upgrade ... Ballasts got into the way for a inproper seal.. I have been reading about it the last hour. Dammit.. They say they don't cover water damage. I actually took everything out before bringing it in.. I didn't wait for the moisture to dry so I left evidence , my dumb mistake .

I feel your pain. I did the same thing but bit the bullet and had BMW replace them. Big money down the drain.

How much did the dealer charge you? Replaced both sides?
