Headlight lense repair

Hey guys, I just bought a 2010 2ss rs and for some reason the headlight lenses seem to have a fog in the center right where the hid bulb is. It's almost like the heat from the bulb has clouded the lense right in the center. Also I have lots of tiny rock chips on the outside of the lense is there some way to repair this without having to buy new lights? Also My headlights make this odd clunking sound when I turn the brights on. Is that normal? Thanks

Matt

Almost like a ticking?

Sounds like something with the HIDs (I am no expert). Maybe the previous owner installed a higher powered HID and that would explain the fog from heat. Just my two cents worth.

The clunking sound is perfectly normal. That is the sound of the lens on the headlight moving.

As far as the cloudiness/stone chips...if your lenses aren't extremely bad you can wetsand them with some fine sand paper and then use polish to clean them up. If you aren't comfortable doing that on your own a body shop could do it pretty easily.
