Head lamp replacement cover

Anyone have a suggestion on replacement for the clear plastic headlamp cover? Don't want to pay for full headlight replacement. 2001 X5, 4.4 thanks!

these headlights come as one unit and individual parts are not normally sold. you can try to buy an old, used headlight and bake off the covers to swap them...

Or you can try sending a PM to Mrbmwx5. I know he had a bunch of covers.

Did you try to restore your existing headlights? I had good result with 3M kit on my E39.
