Headlight Lense

Hey guys i was hoping one of you guys could suggest a vendor or a site where i could order some OEM headlight lenses. My M3 lenses are starting to show rock chips and ruining the beauty of the car. I remember back when i had my e46 european auto source sold bosch replacement lenses, anything similiar to this but for the e92? Any helps would be much appreciated.

E46 - you can buy replacement lenses.
E90/1/2/3 - you can not buy replacement lenses as far as I know

Yeah unfortunately the e46 lens could separate from the housing - just snapped on/off. The e9x is sealed and cannot be easily separated. You can try to find the whole lamp housing at salvage but might be difficult to find any in better condition than yours.

have you tried or considered resurfacing them?

if you're not up for a DIY project, some/most auto detailers usually include headlight restoration as one of their services
