Seattle: Body shop recommendations for headlight lens replacement

Hello,

The driver side headlight lens on my 2011 535i xDrive got smashed after it got hit by a stray piece of lumber from a pickup truck in front of me
Thankfully, only the polycarb lens cover is broken, and the all the lights inside are intact. I'm currently driving around with the headlight taped up with a clear plastic sheet.

Went to a couple of body shops in the Seattle eastside area to have this looked at, and they said they will not replace just the lens, but the entire headlight ($1000+ in parts alone).

I have already purchased the replacement headlight lens ($80 on eBay), and now just need a fitter to put it in for me.

Any recommendations on a body shop or mechanic who could help me out?
