1996 A6 Tail light lens

Has anybody had issues with the tail light frosting up with small hair line cracks, or bubbles in the plastic lens? i have a 1996 A6 with 50K miles and my tail light lenses are frosting up with what looks like hair line cracks or small bubbles.
The dealer says its cosmetic and will replace them if i pay for half of the cost.
Audi says that the dealer says it cosmetic and they have to go with the dealer decides.
The lights look like crap in the sun and before i pay $250 for one lens i will go after market.
The dealer stated that they have seen this before and it is from the sun, i have two other Audi's that are 5 years older and they look perfect.

Anybody else have lights that look like this?
Need a link to a good after market lens!!!

Get some aftermarket lenses, then send these back to Audi, and insist that they refund your money. Explain that you think it's a safety issue: the bubbles/cracks compromise the visibility of the lights.
