Headlights become tarnished and worn as the age of the vehicle progresses. Once they are dull they create an old feel and look to the car, as well pose as a threat for poor light and can mean you will fail your next safety inspection (pink slip). Under Rules for Authorised Inspection Station, rule 106.5. Headlights must be visually inspected and may be rejected if; (a)headlight reflected is tarnished or peeling to the extent that headlight performance is impaired.
Headlights also affect the resale of vehicles. When buying a second-hand car, like many things in life, first impressions last. Before even taking a look under the hood a buyer will judge how well maintained a vehicle is by the general appearance. Things like dents, scratches, interior seats and tyres. However, sometimes we miss the obvious, the small things that leave a big impact. The condition of your headlights gives off an instant feel of either old and worn or new and fresh.
