    Does the low beam bulb go in the middle of the halo and behind a projector lens?

    Those lights might look better tinted.

    Cant be any uglier than the sandblasted lenses on my '05. I wish someone just sold the clear part of the headlight as a replacement. A glass option would totally rock.

    Too far gone to be polished?

    Do a lot of pimps own CTS's or something? Why are there several different aftermarket headlamps available for this car?

    Polished them once before. There are some tiny spiderweb cracks on the lenses that can't exactly be polished smooth, as they penetrate pretty deep into the plastic. I'll probably give it one more shot before I buy a new set of lights. If I could get my hands on just the clear plastic pieces, I would make a business of refurbishing V lights.

    Glass lenses are common on European bound vehicle. You'll never see a glass lens that is sandblasted and yellowed from the sun.
