    Default headlight covers?

    hi

    When i boought my vectra it had headlight protectors/covers on it. Not to sure i like them, the dealer said they will protect the headlights. Surely the original plastic over the headlights is enough? why would you need extra protection?

    Just from chips and scratches as it's cheaper to replace the covers than replace the lights....

    Had a set fitted to mine when I bought it.

    Couple of weeks on this site soon made me think I didn't like them and car would look better without them fitted.

    Plus not a very good fit tbh, rather large screws sticking up, leaves getting between the cover and the light lense etc.

    I've never seen a Vec-C with chipped headlights. Plenty about with UV damage, but the covers won't protect them from that.

    Useful and great for glass headlamps, such as the original Vectra B
    I had them on all my cars up to the Vectra B
    Was thinking about it on my second car when a few days later the offside headlamp was smashed
    Fitted headlamp protectors and it got smashed a few months later, much easier and simpler to replace just that

    More of an insurance policy for the headlamps on the Vectra C, rather than paying the extra to replace the entire unit (as apparently the plastic is not available on its own)
