Headlight repair is not just an aesthetic issue, it is a safety issue. It is well-documented by the AAA Foundation and the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) that dirty headlights decrease visibility by as much as 90% and have played a serious role in major car accidents. Many consumers neglect their headlights until it is too late.
Millions of cars on the road today have plastic headlight lenses. Unfortunately, these lenses don’t hold up to weather and time; they become hazed and yellowed, reducing the light output from the headlamp. This problem increases with the age of the lens, and with the average age of cars on the road at about 10 years old, the problem is growing. In addition, the more sun or salt a vehicle is exposed to, the more likely that its plastic headlight lenses may be hazy. This is a common issue on many domestic and foreign automobiles, and isn’t limited to less-expensive vehicles. The average plastic headlight costs around $250+ to replace (not including installation costs). Some lenses can cost in excess of $350-$400 each (just call your local Lexus or Mercedes dealer).
Many consumers are not aware that their cloudy foggy headlights can be repaired. We begin by removing surface contaminants (bugs, tar, grime) with a headlight cleaner. We then completely remove the oxidized layer of plastic. In the event that there is surface damage (pitting, scarring, scratches) due to road debris, we seal the lens with a UV inhibitor to prevent future degradation of the lens and completely restore your headlamps to like-new condition. In the event that water or condensation is trapped inside, we offer a high-tech solution that removes all the moisture and seals the lens, increasing its overall integrity in the process.
In just under 30 minutes, our expert technicians can repair/restore your headlamps to their factory condition. This is a simple, affordable solution for improving not only the overall look and value of your car, but your visibility in the car, and the visibility of your car to other drivers. So repair your headlights and increase your driving safety at night – you will be glad you did – the life you save may be your own.
