I just searched ebay, and to have both right and left headlight lense covers shipped from the US including US$28 shipping is $84US not including any customs.

The ebay seller says it is stamped AL, which is a subdivision of Bosch, so OEM quality.
I've tried cleaning my headlight lenses before when retrofitting projectors into previous vehicles...and it is a pain and never really looks as good as brand new(from my experience, although i've seen some amazing results online).

for myself, one of my headlight has a crack in it, so I'm just gonna purchase it off ebay.

as for the step by step process for cleaning, there are plenty of DIY guides on the internet for headlights in general

this is for 99-01, RIGHT side, he has a listing for left side, same price, and messaged me saying $29USD for shipping together, equalilng $85USD total shipped, not including customs.

go to the link and look up his other items, i'm sure the 02-05 are similar price.

They are OEM quality, made by AL - a subdivision of Bosch. I double checked with the seller and he said it has the AL stamp on it.

Call Mike at Maranello BMW 905 856 0245 and tell him your from maxbimmer. I priced them out about a year ago and he said they would be about $99 for the pair.

On another note the diy is very easy but its time consuming. I think you need to start with about a 400 or 600 grit and work all the way up to at least 1500 or 2000 grit. Then after polishing and buffing they will be as good as new. I did this on my car and it worked great.

good luck!

I just picked up mine from www.khoalty.com for $72 ... got a few other goodies so it was worth the money spent on the exchange rate right now.
