09 headlights problem

hit to this pothole with my 09 335i and the left headlight is looking down first I thought it doesn't make that difference until I was driving to vt where there are less light and I couldn't even see 10 meters away. High beam is working like the lows but tilted to the left. I took it to BMW of bayside service in great neck and they told me that the rotator is broken. And they said it has to be replaced and it will cost 3500$. I ofcourse said no. He says that this little plastic that connects to wheel is broken it has to be replaced and also he says that the bulb is not where it used to be so I need two replace them too. I think it is overpriced. So what do you guys think? What are my options? Please help

Thanks

Ps they said it is not covered under warranty since it is a customer fault.

First, contact whoever is charge of your roads. Ask them for reimbursement. I've gotten wheels partial covered from cracking.

If that doesn't work, go to a different dealership. Don't tell them you hit a pothole. Just say something is wrong with your headlight and you can't see.

Dude you could buy a freaking headlight for 700 to 1000 new.

Find a new dealership. And start looking for a new or used headlight.
