I have a 2005 CTS-V with faded HID headlights. They are not cloudy mind you, just faded.
I didn't realize how faded until I had to replace the drivers side headlamp (due to a driveway mishap with an airhead).
So the driver's side is beautiful with a deep gray around the perimeter and the passenger lense is a faded gray.
I imagine those covers can come off to be re-painted on the inside. How difficult is it and is it recommended?
I'd hate to drop $800-$900 on a new passenger light.

If you're talking about oxidized lenses, you can just sand those out, polish it, and reseal it for UV protection. Mine were in horrible shape when I bought the car, but I sanded them down. I couldn't quite get the result I wanted, so I had a guy I know finish the job I started. The difference was the final polish step. He used a wool cutting pad to return the high gloss and clarity to the lens.
