Most main dealers will do this service for you. I had mine done at Christopher Neil or Oakmere Lotus as they are called now last week. It was either £180 + VAT a pair if you take your car in or £100 if you take just your headlights in. For me it was more convenient to take my headlights in as I need to get back home, so I used my other car.

The results are very good, refitting headlights was a pain adjusting. Just when you think you have it in the right place as tighten the bolts up, it moves a little!

Too late for you, but my tip is to get a permanent pen and draw around the top braket and the bolts. When you put back in, just line it all up. Easy peasy.

Blessed with the competence to be a slave to the incapable.

Thanks, i'll probably end up going to Bell and Colvill, but it's a bit of a faff as i'm in East Kent and i'd need to leave the car with them. I was hoping there might be somebody closer, but sounds like i'm out of luck.

While B&C are of course an excellent choice, there will be a new dealer just east of Maidstone opening up very soon. Might be easier in terms of the journey.

It's FG Barnes in Parkwood and it should be pretty much any time now last I heard.
