I have spent a lot of time looking for headlights for my E39, and to my knowledge you cannot buy just those covers. Those headlights on that picture you posted are the 2001+ European-spec Angel Eyes, and you would have to purchase the entire headlight set (between $700-$1200, usually). The orange-edged angel-eyes like you say you have are US-spec, since US law requires orange reflectors on the front-side of all passenger vehicles.
Covers for the older, 1997-2000 headlights, like mine, can be purchased for just $100 for the pair to get clear corners. But I'm afraid you're out of luck unless you replace the whole headlight set.
Anyone who ever buys used cars online, anyone even THINKING of starting a "Is this deal too good to be true?" thread, anyone who wants to be more educated about protecting themselves must <a href='http://www.carbuyingtips.com/fraud.htm' target='_blank'>read this</a>.
