Unhappy Headlights are horrible!

I have sanded them down and they aren't yellow anymore, but they are not clear, more like a foggy haze. The low beam is just awful! The high beam is great! What can I do?

Can't do HID. Should I try the top of the line bulbs? If so, what?
I can't drive at night like this...ideas?

Seems like you still need to do more polishing to them. Did you buy a kit? Which one did you use?

I'm beginning to wonder if it is inside the lens. I have polished them 2x.
