Does anyone have any suggestions for how to restore my fog lights back to good condition? They're all covered in thousands of little white specks, it seems. When I use a toothbrush with some water/soap they seem to disappear, but once it dries they're still there. I can't figure it out. Would sand paper work, or would that ruin the glass even further? Should I just bite the bullet and drop $130 on a set of new foglights? I hate having disgusting and dirty lenses.

Heh, yeah. I figured. I'll wait until one of my current ones gets destroyed by the road somehow. Or until the summer.

I don't have an E36 anymore but when I did, I had Bosch headlights and later on ZKWs.

Never had a problem but...I always thought the simple way to get moisture out was to take the back cover off for a while...the heat from the bulbs would dry everything up and the moisture could evaporate out...
