Ewww...how do I buff/polish my fog light lens?!

Ewww look at the state of these! Didn't notice this when I purchased the car...

Can I buy the lens alone or is it one unit?

Can I polish it myself? What do you guys recommend?

Sidenote: Is it possible to take off the lower grill alone? I would like to paint it black, but I hear it's part of the bumper, I'm hoping there's some way to take this off without having to remove the bumper.

This looks HORRID! It looks like the stains of a toilet at a gas station in a remote area!

that lower grille is not factory. the OE grille is a thin black mesh.

you'll have to remove the fogs from the bumper to clean them to your liking. the bumper must be taken off the car to get them out. removing the bumper is quite easy, and i *think* there's a how-to in the DIY section. if you can't find it, let me know and i'll PM you instructions.

Thanks v3.2mc!

So, that's not OE hm...

Yep, I've checked out the removal of the bumper. Today seems like a great day to do it. Need to call a buddy to help me with this
