It was not too costly from Parkview BMW.
No problems since.
Are you sure it is melted, when I changed my license place bulb I thought the connection had melted as well be as it turned out it was only a bit of corrosion on the bulb and contacts. I cleaned up the contact and applied some dialectric grease and everything has been fine.
