Default Headlight Lenses distorted

I noticed that there are opaque distortions on my headlight lenses. Anyone else have this happen? Its almost like they're melting.

No, I don't have this, Just took apart my headlights yesterday to clear the corners out. That sucks, What kind of bulbs you got in there?
I highly recomend clearing the corners by the way looks excelent. Even my mom thinks it looks better now. More aggressive and cleaner front end, order some mesh grill too. Getting new pics of my front end for my sig soon!

My 2000 SLE has the same problem with the front light covers. The glass or plastic seems to be melting just in front of one light bulb and it is only on the right side. A friend told me the heat of the bulb was the problem and only a new cover would fix the problem. My car is approaching 4 years old with 78,000 miles, so we are starting to see a few minor problems. While it was under warrantry, we had the trunk water leak fixed The leak is now back at a much smaller scale. Before it was a spoiler leak. I also had a lot of brake dust and squealing problems until I broke down and purchased the new less noise, less dust brake pads at NTB. Probably about $40. more per wheel but worth it. Looking to change the alloy wheels to chome, but only Pontiac wheels. If you know anyone that has any, please send them my way.

At night when I look at the head lights while standing in front of the car, the lenses appear to have a sand blasted effect on the interior part of lens. The head light lenses on the newer Bonnevilles are plastic.
