Headlight Lens Covers

Has anyone found a source for replacement lens covers for headlights?

To my knowledge and research, the clear plastic lens of headlights are a non removable part of an entire headlight assembly. The entire assembly is expensive to buy but the other option is to clean the leans with tooth paste or commercial lens restoration cleaner every 3-6 months.
Examples: heaD LIGHT lens cleaner - Google Search

I am not sure these will fit the original Alpine lights but they should.

DEPO - Clear Headlight Frame Cover - E39 5-Series & M5

You can find complete light assemblies for about the same price.

Another option is to have them polished. For about $50.00 most bigger car washes in my area (SF Bay Area), will buff them. If they arn't too deeply scratched or discolored the results are pretty good. Mine were pretty messed up, and the results were ok. The deeper scratches remained, but cosmetically there was a huge improvement. You might want to check it out.

color sand and polish them out

I color sanded and polished my alpine front lens out a year ago they still look great.
If you color sand them with a very fine wet dry sandpaper Approx 1000-1200 grit
and use a quality 3M superduty compound for auto paint followed up with a final polishing glaze . They should be looking great in no time at all . Mine where almost white/yellow before I did this.

The 178 bucks for both sides of the lights
(97-03 BMW E39 5-Series Angel Eye Halo Projector Headlights) seems very cheep. almost worth ordering them just to check them out. plus they have a great look
