2012-2017 Essex Headlight Replacement

As I research replacement headlights for my '13 Essex, I'm struggling to confirm which Automotive headlight fits. The 2011 and earlier Essexs use the 2002-5 Acura RSX, which have double bumps on the bottom of the lens. My Essex looks similar but without the double bump. I've seen a later model Acura RSX that look very close, if not exact.

The issue is that my headlight lenses appear to be "peeling." I may try to polish this out but I'm guessing this won't work.

Then I've got a question about the HID bulbs vs LEDs.

Any help would be appreciated!

Here's a picture of my headlight. PS, the cloudy areas are actually reflection of the clouds. :-))

UPDATE:

After continuing to read various posts, it was suggested that I Google the DOT number. But what I found was the OEM info. I found their website and searched for my light. What I found was this came from a 2005-6 Acura RSX. At least now I have a backup plan if the polishing doesn't work.

Here's a screen shot of the info I found:
