Unfortunately, he told me that the part I requested (that thin piece of plastic) is not available separately. I'm not sure how much effort he really put in, but I think the best option is to try to obtain it at a scrap yard because I'm not spending $300-$400 for new assemblies when they're not needed.
Yeah and thats BMW service...! I think the scrap yard is the best choice
