Sorry another xenon thread, horrible glare

recently got a e46 330i sport touring, Uk spec with factory xenons, but they have this horrible glare on the inside of the lense. I have used a restore kit on the outside so the glass is perfect but the glare is still there. Looked online at different pictures and most look crisp and clear. any ideas?

not my car but what it looks like.

thanks for the help

You can take the lenses off quite easily. Maybe try the restore process on the inside too. They are actually plastic, not glass. Mine were so faded that I just didn't want to deal with it and bought two new ones.

Thanks, The lenses are definitely clean, looks like they are not there. just kind of get an oval shaped glare in them. Can the reflectors or projectors cause this?
