    'Dirty' Xenons, A3 8P xenon owners i need a favour please..

    Hiya fellas...

    I've got a bit of an annoying problem with the Bi-xenons on my 06 car and was wondering if anyone else with xenons could check theirs to see if they have anything similiar please

    Problem is this, i've noticed an ever increasing collection of dust/spots appearing on the inside of the headlight lens that is shown up by the headlamp beam and it seems to 'diffuse' the beam to a certain extent, also there are what appear to be fingerprints and smudging on the surface of the projector globe of the xenon unit

    Anyone else have a similiar problem or have ze joymans only fingered my headlights...

    TIA
    Steve

    i've noticed dust on the inside of the lesn when the lights are on but i assume this to be normal to be honest - dust does get everywhere, and strong light always shows the tiniest particles of dust up
