    Default Headlights on vectra

    Hi,

    On my new vectra Elite 06 plate, the headlights seems to have a blue tint around the outside of them.

    What is this tint, as I do not recall it on my last vectra.

    Many thanks.

    ooo... thanks.

    Didn't know I had that LOL I assume the pull out plastic cover is the headlight washers?

    Wonder what else this car has LOL (the dealership guy I don't think even knew! ) All he could mention was the colour sat nav.

    (you can see I am not a car expert )

    I have the blue tint on the top of my lights when they are on. it's something to +do with the shape of the lens. I don't have AFL. I had the sane on my old astra g when i fitted fk angel eyes as they had the same shape headlight lens. Something to do with the way the light reflects of the inside bringing out the different colours. You'll notice a bit of yellow in there too if you put extreme white bulbs in.

    If you want to be seriously impressed, stand in front of the car while someone else starts it, watch the headlight go through it's self test cycle.

    Make sure the car's out of gear first though, or you might not like what you see!!!
