Clear Headlight Modifications

I've got a '01 Boxster S and want to buy clear headlights for it. I have seen many boxsters with clear indicators but very few with the orange film inside taken out, for that complete clarity. I find that if I buy a NON litronic headlight set - that even if you look inside the headlight you can see the orange strip inside (that sits in front of the light bulb). Some people claim to be able to take this out? Am i right in saying this? How can this be done? OR is this a headlight you can buy from Porsche or different aftermarket unit?

Thanks for that. I apreciate the speedy reply. Looks a bit tricky. I dont wanna break anything or burn it but il give it a go! Just one question regarding something you said in that attached post "hack is only for litronic lights"
Can't you buy non litronic and litronic headlights?
Wats the difference: litronic have the halogen and adjustable height?
Non litronic are just like the standard ones that I have except the ones I want will be clear. I can do it to both.
*I know what you mean by not being able to do it to the orange lights (the ones I have)
