Hi HP

I'm afraid the UK and NO rules are not the same, even if our MOT rules comes from the EU.

Checklist cotains 150 checkpoints and in regards to the headlights, it's enough for the control (freak) person to look at the yellow-aged plastic lens/cover and say this is not the way it should look.

Have removed them now in order to work some magic with all sorts of stuff found in my garag e

don't attack the silver painted bit with anything stronger than water - it'll come off. The inner lens should clean up a bit but to be honest they don't look bad

Have a look at my bi-xenon refurb thread if you haven't spotted it

MOT passed after removing the tint and polishing the ldl out of the plastic covers. Got a bit better but still a bit yellow-ish.

Today it also came clear that these old ladies absolutely has a soul..

Was driving to work and chatted with my self if should sell this beauty since the MOT is passed and the whole car is in good shape. 500m further down the road, the EPC light came on..... Never ever seen this before..

Managed to "limp" it to work and will do a scan tonight.

I did mine a couple of years back. There is a guide on this on Audipages IIRC. Got the internal lens covers much less yellow.
EDIT: Look in the stickies in D2 Lights - there are two, one for external lens polishing and then a thread from this forum which shows the internal lens cleaning procedure - http://forum.a8parts.co.uk/showthread.php?t=5817

Sometimes strangely this can be related to a faulty brake light switch at the pedal end. . . worth a check as they are cheap to replace
