Yellow Headlight advice wanted

I have a 1999, there have been several owners. Like a lot of others, the headlight lenses are yellow at the top probably due to too high of watt bulbs.

I would like to just have them clear without a ton of cost. Would it be best to keep an eye out for used ones from a Boxster being parted out, search places like E-Bay, or try to locate some new ones? I see where people bake them to get the lenses off, but I don't think I want to go to that much trouble.

Any suggestions?

The inner lenses are yellowed, or the outer lenses?

If the outer lenses are yellowed, Meguiars Plast-X and a buffer/polisher will work wonders. If the issue is the inner lenses, the only option is to replace. Used headlights almost always have yellowed and/or burnt inner lenses, but the occasional good pair comes up once in a while.
