Need a Ballast New or Used

So I tore my car apart today and found out why my passenger side headlight wasn't working. DEAD BALLAST.

So I can either get one new from my local BMW dealer or if one of you guys have an extra one I'll take it off your hands. Venders? I'm sure you guys can sell me one cheaper than the dealer will. New or used is fine as long as it's in good working condition.

Lmk what you have.

Thanks!!

(Pre Lci e90 330i btw)

It's like 162$ but I can most likely have someone I know get it with they're discount which I believe is 20% off that.

So if anyone has or can get one cheaper than that'd I'd most likely take it
