Headlight reflector repair?

Despite upgrading to HID units in the Cup the headlights are still like most politicians... not very bright. I have come to the conclusion that the reflector finish must have been burnt off with previously fitted over rated bulbs. (read something on here about it).
Can it be recoated or are the headlights dead? Both the Spiders are much brighter on standard bulbs so the worry is I could buy some s/hand units as crap as the Cup's and I wouldn't know until they were on.

Worst case you could buy some other used headlight units and swap them out. Hoping that the reflectors in those are better than yours !
