Re: Headlight Lacquer repair

Craig uses Protek for his headlight refurbs, unfortuneately out of my budget, so will be going down the DIY route over the winter.

Re: Headlight Lacquer repair

Headlight Lacquer repair

The lacquer has started to flake off my headlights, is there anywhere recommended to refurbish them in the Edinburgh area?

S3 Elise Light Upgrades

Has anyone upgraded their S3 Elise/Exige Headlights? Driving my S3 Elise this morning reminded me how bad the headlights are, on my S1 I replaced them with Osram Nightbreakers, but there appears to be less choice for the S3. Headlight (Dipped Beam) HB3A Headlight (Main Beam) H9B Driving Lights ????
