Vandalism done to my tail lights and is there any way around to fix them?

So what a surprise, my tail lights has been scratched and seems it has fractures too, but otherwise they work just fine but small fractures and scratches, so is there any substance or agent or anything that I could fix easily or hide those scratches and fractures or do I really need to go and get brand new ones with my insurance company?
Deductible fee is propably around 200€ perhaps but 2 new tail lights for my RCZ costs around over 700€ if I buy them from like Autodoc on my own, so I most likely would get brand new ones only for 200€ when I need to pay that deductible fee.

Best way would be if I could fix them cheaply somehow or hide them well so they can't be seen and that overall look doesn't change after that fix to those tail lights.

Sorry to hear your dilemma you could vinyl wrap them with a tinted film, this is something some owners do anyway which gives the car a different look this may possibly hide the damage?

You could try a good quality headlight restoration kit like this Sylvania one. The clear lacquer you apply as the final step can fill hairline fractures, making them virtually invisible. They work on all clear plastics, not just the headlights.

Mine have scratches from other considerate brain dead arsewipes who have got to make contact when the car is parked anywhere in public

I have a hole and chips in mine. I wondered if the outer cover was different to the whole pod and could be replaced separately?
