instead of cleaning, has anybody seen replacements for these, either in plastic (OEM) or hopefully an upgraded glass form?

Plastics can not be upgraded they are glued on. Glass ones can be purchased and that glass is replaceable. Regarding the plastic I just rubbed mine down with Turtle Wax Polishing Compound and they look much better.
