    Evening all,

    Just took my sons 308 for a short drive and didn't realise how poor the headlights are, anyone else suffer from the same problem? Any suggestions, solutions to improve the brightness and distance of the lights, better bulbs, Halogens etc?

    Thanks in advance

    Tony

    what sort of headlights has it got - normal? projector? LED? better h4 lamps can easily be bought 150% 200% but look for legal e marked ones. Is the front lens clear or gone yellow/opaque? you may need to get them polished up with a kit but make sure it includes a anti UV sealant coat once done or it will just happen again within the year. had 306, 307 with normal and projector lamps both were good and now a 308 with LED which is excellent - so must be an underlying reason.

    Hi, the car has normal headlight bulbs and we did replace them with 150% brighter ones but the end result is the same. Seems to be poor amount of light and it doesn't throw the light very far. All lenses washed and seem clear, not really yellow. Considering adjust the lights up to get better distance out of them, but more clearer light would also be better.
