    What's wrong with the lens, OP? Are they yellowy looking?

    If so they need cutting back and polishing, cost about £50 rather than ripping the lamps out and replacing them for megabucks!

    Search for 3M headlamp restorer kit on eBay or Amazon.

    that 3m kit is a miracle worker on faded lenses. 15 quid on eBay and lights are like new after 10 mins of minimal effort.

    Hi Guys,
    I’ve recently bought a C220 CDI Sport Coupe on an 06 plate. The headlights are discoloured and am thinking of upgrading the headlights as opposed to polishing the current ones. The question I have is does anyone know where I can purchase aftermarket headlights from? I found some on a website but it’s American so lefthand drive headlights!!

    Many Thanks

    Devan

    There's very little wrong with the standard lights if the lenses are clean. I'd be surprised if an aftermarket one were an upgrade.

    I polished mine last week, 2003 E320 CDI and I'm very pleased with the results, as LostKiwi said I doubt aftermarkets would be an upgrade, once the original lens are polished clear the beam is very good. If there no good after polishing them, have the aim sorted, mine were rubbish when I bought the car, had the aim sorted and there great.
