Same here. I recommend you put back those covers. My lamps have become brown because of the heat.

Cant the headlight assembly be removed and cleaned to get rid of the dust? This can be done during service at your request cant it?

can be done to the extend of cleaning with pressurised air , and even for that the A.S.S would not help you out , Raghav of ignite would be your best bet.

There are kits available off the internet for doing this but havent heard of anyone using it here.

Hey,
If you have bought the ceramic holder(which i am sure you would have because you have mentioned 100/90) then they might cut the cover a little to make some space for the wires so ask them to be careful if they are going to be doing that.

Shyam
not necessary to cut the dust covers all the time in my car , i had them installed properly but while replacing the one of the headlights as the result of an accident, the A.S.S guys installed it the easy way by cutting the dust covers . the sad part is you can buy the dust covers alone it comes only with the headlamp assembly.

One of the reasons why one of my headlights in fading faster than the other.

Three options:

1. Install Osram nightbreakers with 55/60W rating, it would be a direct fit with no need of relays etc.
2. Additional Hella spot lights and leave the headlamps as stock.
3. Drill the Headlamp back cover for the wires to pass and then seal it properly with some sealant.
