Cloudy reflectors are the result of water in the headlight assembly. Many auto body parts retailers will be able to sell you an aftermarket headlight assembly that isn't cloudy. Beyond that, the highway department has specifications regarding how bright your headlights can be. A good, commercially available halogen headlight is about the limit.
