Where to get headlight lenses

I have an '05 Alpine Coach and the headlight lenses are very cloudy. I had them worked on by a detail shop and they are only slightly improved. The headlights themselves are fine. Are the lenses available somewhere? I have seen posts about people upgrading the headlight assembly, but have not been able to find a source for just the lenses. What to do??
Thanks in advance,
Mike

Nope--its a sealed unit [mostly]...lots of after market solutions [BMW 5-series 97-04????] for less than $175 and the results look great--IMHO....Even if you could, I doubt if you could find "just the lens" for much less than $100.....

Headlights

I had a problem with moisture getting inside mine when it rained and was going to replace them. I looked on Ebay and found replacements for the complete light and just the lenses were available also. They are BMW E39 headlights. I was able to reseal mine and did not have to buy any so I can't verify the quality or the fit of the headlights.

Thanks for the info. I had no idea it was all one assembly. I thought the lens was just covering the headlights.

The reason I said "mostly" is that you can separate the lens from the body but they are factory sealed and its not clear to me that they were designed to be separated....but ref post #3 apparently the lens are available.....Again, do a look-up on this forum, the after market haloes are pretty cool and not too expensive....

Ref the above, there are any number of sources on EBay or Amazon for replacement lights--both BMW and aftermarket. BMW, 5 series, 97 thru 04, E39--available in traditional headlights or the haloes above....
