Velar back. Two new lights for Christmas.

They had problems with one light as the main beam didn’t work, replacement arrived this morning and car ready for 10:30 this morning.

Dealer says it costs them £1700 for each light unit. Customer £2495 + VAT

I had similar both headlights cracked randomly this Saturday without hitting anything. Took it down to lookers landrover Battersea today, pictures are taken and now booked in for inspection and hopefully it’s covered by warranty. Cost of purchasing both headlights is £5k+ Which is an unexpected hit in my pocket especially during this corona virus situation.

My velar still lovely to drive and still enjoying every bit of the car.

That looks very bad Aklaw !

As not everyone adds the model year to their signature it's hard to tell if this is isolated to MY18 or if any MY19/20 Velar's have seen this issue. I assume the new cars in the showroom that were looked at back in 2018 were also 18MY? Also does this affect Matrix LED lights or just the LED or Premium LED headlights?

Checked mine (Matrix LED) and as far as I can tell they are crack free at the moment.
