    Hi All ,

    Just thought I would introduce myself .
    I would like to ask a question please? I have a Leon FR 2011 and the Headlights seem very misty . This is not a water ingress issue more like the plastic or lens has been scratched /pitted somehow however it seems to be inside . Is this possible?
    I brought a Lens cleaning kit and completed the refurb on the outside but Im still having issues with the light beam as they are still not clear.
    Can anyone help?? please - Do i need new headlights? I have also changed the bulbs but this just seems to have made it worse .
    Thanks All

    Morning ,
    Thanks for the reply .Yes it would seem like a similar issue .looks like I may need to change the unit as the damage may have been caused by the heat from the bulbs internally .Only running standard bulbs so not sure why this has happened though.

    Currently it's not bothering me as much as I thought so it will be ok for a while, standard units shouldn't cost as much as the Xenon's so hopefully you should be good to go soon!

    Enjoy reading the many things to do on you FR.

    Cheers
