Way over priced.

First, did you find the source of the water? Perhaps replacement AE bulbs? Don't fix or replace anything till you find that, or you will pay more than once for this repair.

There are 2 modules in each light, one for the headlight control, and one for the adaptive motors.

If you are handy you can even fix this yourself but you do need to remove the front bumper so it's involved, but not brain surgery.

I would get a good indie as the cost is way out of line. See my other posts here on parts and here on replacement AEs.
