Years ago, a friend of mine had this happen with the headlights on his Saab 900. The reflectors were so bad that they were next to useless. It was a trait of the car, so replacements were like rocking horse muck. One Saab specialist recommended spraying the reflectors with chrome paint - he reckoned with care, you could get a decent (though not perfect) finish.

We never actually tried it, as we eventually sourced a reasonable set of reflectors. It could be worth a try before you splash out on new lamps though. All it's going to cost you is the price of a tin of chrome paint.
