Burned Angel Eye

had the car for 2yrs and and when i bought it, it came with hid angel eyes. i dont know how long it has been in the car but now i had to get a new headlight due to an accident and i just noticed that the left angel eye is completely burned from the heat of the bulb and its changed color...if i changed the bulb it wouldnt matter bcuz the ring itself is burned. i know how to bake open the headlight, does anyone know if the clear inner angel eye is sold by itself? jus asking because i like the hid setup and dont feel like paying hundreds for aftermarket rings like oss.

That is sometimes the side effects of HID angel eyes. They product too much heat and causes the plastic rings to discolor. There is nothing you can do to reverse this other then replace the headlights. I would recommend not running HID lights in your new headlight or else the same thing will happen.

So theres no way i can buy there small inner clear ring? I kno it comes loose and then i can change my setup from there, this would save me from paying $500 plus for a headlight

No its part of the headlight and you cant purchase that seperatly. You could look for a junk headlight on e-bay and swap the internals yourself, but that would be risky.
