    Default Facelift headlight protectors

    My headlight protectors arrived today.
    Look easy to fit so it's a little job for tomorrow.
    Ebay bargain at 21 quid.

    dealer tryed to flog me then when i bought the car

    i personally cant stand the white rim around the edge, and its just going to be made of flimsy plastic so all the stone chips are still going to cloud your headlight beams anyway with all the stone chip marks.

    not quite sure what they achieve.

    I had these on my vecy B gsi which was black. I tinted these so they were really dark, it look supurb and then at night just remove them as they were on velcro. (tinting spray removed with thinners if you didnt like it) could be a different mod for the vecy c

    Hope they last longer than mine did, about 2 days before a stone hit one. They are more easily damaged than headlights and not worth the money. I would keep them for shows and not use them on the road

    Default Facelift headlight protectors

    I'm looking to get a set of these as I'm going abroad this summer and want to stick beam deflectors on them. Heard that if you stick the deflectors on the normal lights it can cause hot spots?
    How did you get on with fitting them and do you have any pics. I have a black Vec so think the silver rim would look O.K.

    There is a switch in the back of the lamp mate so you can drive on the continent without deflectors.
