can you fix water in the headlights problem?

Get a lot of condensation inside my headlights just want to know if there is something I can do to fix that or do I just have to buy new headlights?

Consider replacing the rubber gaskets for the clear plastic headlight covers.

Also, check for cracks in the covers, and make sure the bulb covers/boots on the back sides of the headlights are intact and in place.

The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Extra credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3" not "I'm looking for a M3".

Is there anywhere to buy the gaskets and bulb boots other than the dealer?

Yes, look up the part numbers on realoem.com and paste them into pelicanparts.com.
