    You mean the plastic clear front piece, just so we're clear on what you're asking.

    Yes mate the plastic lenses that seal on the lenses are cracked in mine In stead of buying new ones I thought potentially I might be able to swap the lense with a halogen one save me some till!

    Ok 1st, is this a result from accident, as I know 1st hand that these facelift bixenon headlights are supplied from factory on new cars with cracks on them, trust me I've been to hell & back with audi over these cracks on new headlights, checked 10 sets ordered in & all had the same cracks on the drl area's about 1cm long, also bottom edge a minor crack.

    We checked showroom cars as well, all had the same cracks.
