1 year guarantee on all of services/workmanship. Not valid if the service show signs of tampering, mishandling, mis-powering, reverse engineering, disassembly, or if the vehicle is involved in an accident. The warranty is for the purchaser only, and not transferable to a future owner.

When fitting is opted for, bumper fitment will be as the vehicle arrived (at a minimum) as long as all the bolts, screws, clips and clamps (fixings) are present and correct when the vehicles arrives. If you are missing or have any damaged fixings, the same fitment cannot be guaranteed. Once a vehicle has left our premises, we cannot guarantee the bumper fitment or alignment - any issues must be raised on vehicle handover. Excess fitting/parts charges may be applicable for non factory fit vehicles, specifically on vehicles that have either; been involved in an accident, have had a previous poor bumper fit, have incorrect fixings present or incorrectly/poor fitting of aftermarket parts. We can additionally supply and fit brand new OEM fixings if in stock, or if advised beforehand. Work undertaken & vehicles left on premises at the owners risk. Wheels must be rechecked and retorqued 50 miles after fitting (if they are removed during the fit). Locking wheel nuts must be supplied on the day for the fitting to be carried out. Any snapped wheel bolts due to bolts being previously over-tightened is on the onus of the owner to repair/remove/refit.

If fitting is not being carried out by ourselves. we recommend professional removal and installation of the headlights, and we are not liable for any damage incurred from self installation. 

Coding may be required for the headlights for all features to function correctly. Coding and associated fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

If we're fitting at our commercial premises, headlight fitting/removal is covered within the guarantee for any issues raised within 28 days, after this time period any remedial work undertaken will be subject to normal fitting charge.

For any fittings carried out by a third party, no refunds/partial refunds/contributions will be made for any warranty work that we undertake.

We reference OEM workshop material & guidelines for fogging and condensation which is:

Headlight fogging fault pattern

Certain weather conditions can lead to fogging on the inside of the headlight lens.This is not necessarily a fault that requires replacement of the headlight.

Top row (A): Permissible fogging. Headlight does not need to be replaced.
Bottom row (B): Impermissible fogging. Warranty claim to be raised.

Headlights are fogged over
Repair notice for assessing condensation in the headlamp

The images show the difference between mild and severe condensation in the headlamps of various vehicles.

  • A headlamp with substantial condensation can be recognised by the formation of droplets on the inside of the headlamp unit
  • The appearance of moisture immediately following cleaning in a car wash or after the vehicle is driven in heavy rain can point to severe condensation and possibly indicate a headlight that is not effectively sealed. Usually occurs only on one side
  • The condensation phenomenon is promoted by damp, humid air that penetrates into the headlamp from the outside by entering through the ventilation system. This then evaporates in the headlamp while it is still warm, and when the unit cools it then precipitates to form condensed moisture of the inside of the headlamp lens
  • This neither causes corrosion damage to the headlamp, nor does it exercise a negative impact on the intensity of the light that it emits.


1 Light fogging
2 Heavy fogging

We will only warranty headlights if they fall under heavy/permissible fogging. Anything that doesn't fall within the above constraints is not considered to be an issue, and won't be covered under our warranty.
