Well ive been watching this for the last few months and the headlight covers on my car, are becoming all fogged up and hazey. I was wondering if you can take off the cover for the lights and just get new ones, or if you have to buy the whole new headlight assembly to fix this.

Someone told me that there is a new cover that you can buy for it...I dont know if this is true or not but if someone can let me know it would help me out a lot..

sorry pal, you gotta buy the whole ASSEMBLY, but if you do, your better off just going with the ELLIPSOIDS, i believe you COULD replace the plastic, but it'll look bad cause you have to BREAK the plastic!!!

my zkw ellipsoids are amazing, I love them, but you can still clean up your stock headlights to look a bit better if u dont have the money for them because they are expensive

Not only do they "LOOK" better, but they perform better, they focus the light on the road way better!!

They are expensive, I got them for about $350 usd shipped to my family in new york state and picked them up from there. I forget where I got them from I think it was www.eurospeedperformance.com. But they fluctuate in price often you could find a cheaper price maybe.

they're safer then US lights, that's all that really matters. They should've been stock on north american e36's/
