    Refurbished my headlights tonight

    One thing that has bugged me since getting my car was the headlight condition.

    They had crazed and looked really bad and let the car down.

    I have a machine polisher and had read on the net about using wet and dry sandpaper and then polishing back up using finer and finer grades of polish.

    Here are some before and afters (Also added led side light bulbs):

    Well done. Had the same issue with mine but unfortunately I had to pay someone to do it. Looks like you have done a fine job there.

    Headlight removal is relatively easy,there are 4 torx bolts,2 up top and 2 down the back of the light unit. Disconnect the wiring (sometimes not necessary if youve small hands) and then you can access the bulb holder covers.

    Contact t8ups on here for a good price on sidelight bulbs,he supplied mine and theyre very good.

    Yeah I removed them.

    Mine just had 2 torx screws at the top on the slam panel and just 1 just behind the headlight (you can see it if you look where the bulb cover is)
