    My 2010 headlights got replaced by the dealer 4 years back and the inner amber lens has melted and broken again. I like the factory headlights and they light up the road great (especially after I adjusted them) but wonder if I buy another set, will the same thing happen again.
    Thanks for any and all suggestions.

    Yes it probably will. Get led blinkers and relay.

    If they replaced them under the Lens service campaign they installed the wrong ones as the replacements do not have that issue.

    Jimmy h, I bet they installed the same old headlights that had the problems, I should go back to dealer and see if they'll replace them again. I wonder if the numbers Dave replaced his with are the correct numbers for upgrade?
    Hey MadRussian what is relay about?
