First BMW

Hi, I am a first time BMW owner, I just bought a 2003 325xi and it is great. I was a long time Volvo 850 Turbo owner (2 cars), and this is so great to drive compared to the Volvo. Although the older 850's were great cars too. I have a question, the headlight lens are cloudy, can they be cleaned? If so, is it difficult to pull the lens off - or am i stuck with cloudy headlights?

thanks,

325 xi you say nice AWD system...
Just get some rubbing compound and a buffer! and if there pretty bad get some 1500 grit and 2000grit sand paper and water and soap... drip the sandpaper in the sop and sand the lenswith the 1500 grit!!WARNING BECAREFUL OF YOUR PAINT !! then sand it with the 2000 grit(yes they WILL look worst at this point...) then take the rubbing compound and buffer and go at it till it's crystal clear!
