    Hello all

    Anyone know if it is possible to get headlamp guards made to measure. We suffered a smashed headlamp on the Hymer when a stone was thrown up. The bill for new unit and fitting was £1500 (ouch):cry:. Any suggestions please.

    Wow! Even by today's standards that seems ridiculously expensive for a headlight. I wonder why it should cost so much?

    IMO it is not the headlights that need guards but the thieves who charged you £1500 for supplying and fitting a headlight as they are dragged off to prison...

    No wonder insurance is becoming so expensive...

    ... it was an insurance job wasn't it?

    You can call in at your nearest plastic factory and get them to cut some up, or buy some perspex from a DIY store. If you need to bend, gently heat.

    They can either be fixed by screws or velcro - your choice. Have a look on auction sites for motorcycle headlight covers, as there are a few people that custom make them.

    I experienced the same problem.I bought mine on ebay from a guy who makes them in his garage I thought they would be rubbish but they look really professional and they fit very well. They've been on now for approx
    600 miles and still look good.:thumb:

    I fitted Lamin-X film to the headlights of my 2007 B544SL shortly after buying it and am glad to say that I have not had a problem with the headlights in 28,000 miles. Hope I am not tempting fate with this post!
