Headlights are a little fogged. Was quoted 250 to sand/repolish the cover.

Alternatively i looked at new headlight sets but headlights are functioning.

I turned to taobao,and found many random useful parts, but no head light covers.

Are there even such things for sale? :)

Most of the headlights are one integrated unit, there is no cover unless the headlight design of your car is different. $250 sounds too expensive, yiu may want to ask ine or two more shop for quote. car polishing shop should be able to do the job?

Thanks. Car polishing service can also restore the headlights?

The surface of the headlights feels a little grainy too.

Hi, those polishing contains abrasives that will damage the car paintwork. Before you start work , make sure you tape up the paint surrounding the lights to avoid damaging your paintwork.

Best is to leave it as it is... unless you are changing it.

 

The cataracts are there to remind you that your ride is ageing and need replacement. Good motivation for you to work harder for the next ride. :D
