Unhappy Headlight TROUBLE!!!

Hey guys!

So Iíve got a huge problem. My girlfriend ordered the wrong headlight HID bulb(my fault I was too vague) and well, it kinda melted the housing unit (these damn cheap lights.

Iíve attached images of the melted housing. I need your guys help. What are the parts I would need to replace? Do I need a new headlight?

The problem isn't that you need a whole headlight because it's all one piece - it isn't - but that you won't be able to find that reflector bowl anywhere as a listed part #. You can try to find a used one that may has a cracked lens or housing but it's a gamble that the bowl will be in any decent shape when the housing's been cracked open, exposed to elements, etc.
