Question LF - Headlight Lens E46 Sedan

Does anyone know of a place in Toronto that sells E46 04 Sedan headlight lens?

Mine are starting to get a little bit fogged up and would like to replace them. I see Khoalty has some for 72$+shipping, has anyone used these?

Would rather just save on shipping and pick a pair up in the city if possible.

Though not a direct answer to your thread, have you tried opening up the headlight assembly and cleaning it first? Try to determine if the fogging is on the inside or outside. Sometimes the gasket that seals the lens to the assembly begins to erode, causing a leak that allows condensation within the lens. I took mine apart, and used just a standard private-label glass cleaner and let the chemical sit in the lens for about 20 minutes, dried it out and carefully put it back together and haven't had a problem since.

If it still leaks, you can buy the gasket separately.

If the lens is sand-blasted from the outside, Canadian Tire sells kits to fix that as well. If you want to avoid the hassle, I'd suggest checking out Bimmerspecialist and ordering the OEM part from there to save on potential custom duties (although Khoalty is pretty good as long as you use USPS).

Thanks Stueyy!

I don' think it's sandblasted from the outside, I think it's just fogging on the inside - I'll have to take it out and check, the glass cleaner would be a great alternative if it works...and it'll save me some $$$ for a couple other projects I have on the go.

Bimmerspecialist has the lenses for 49, when I ordered them a couple years back I remember them being bosch branded on the site so YMMV. Order and replace the seals at the same time (I didn't, and had to replace them later as the new lenses fogged up with the old seals).
