Warped A-Pillar Trim

Hi, both A-Pillar trims on my Mini Cooper S have warped. It seems to be because of the hot sun we had this summer as the side which gets more exposure is definitely worse. The garage I bought it from are refusing to do anything and saying it not a fault. BMW agreed to provide the parts free but only if I pay 150 for fitting! Anyone else had this problem?

I think they are around 40 each and really easy to fit I would asked them to supply and you fit or if you are local to nottingham I will fit them for a beer!
