It is in Action stores that you can find this inexpensive product to renovate your car.

Seeing (and being seen) well in the car is the basics. This function is provided by the headlights, placed at the front of each vehicle. The light they project thanks to the bulbs nestled within them illuminates the road plunged into darkness as soon as day falls. Driving at night without having activated your lights can also be very expensive since the fine, fourth class, amounts to 135 euros, increased to 90 euros in the event of payment within 15 days. However, like any part, car headlights wear out and lose efficiency over the years. Hence the importance of maintaining them regularly.

If you don't want to bother, the mechanics do it for you. But renovating headlight optics is expensive, particularly because it takes a little time. Allow around forty euros if the polycarbonate, this lighter and less brittle plastic material which gradually replaced the glass headlights of vehicles in the early 1980s, is slightly damaged. And not far from a hundred euros if the optics are in very poor condition. At this price, it is better to try to give a second life to your headlights yourself. Baking soda and toothpaste are known to be effective in polishing plastic. But you can also find an inexpensive product on the market whose results might surprise you.

It's at Action that we can find it. In this store specializing in hard-discount, you can find a headlight repairer from the Valma brand (Headlight Restore and Sealant) in the form of a 100ml tube for just over 3 euros. And there's no need to use the entire tube, a dab of this lotion is enough to renovate a headlight by rubbing it vigorously with a microfiber cloth. The result is stunning, the headlights regain a beautiful shine and let the light shine fully again. To keep it in good condition, we advise you to repeat the operation every six months. Do the math, with one tube per year, the savings are considerable!

The Highway Code states that it is prohibited to drive a car with defective or dirty headlights that do not allow enough light to pass through. In the event of a check, the police may arrest you and impose a third-class fine of 68 euros. It can be reduced to 45 euros or increased to 180 euros depending on the payment deadline.
