I have had my S type nearly a year but owing to illness I have not driven it a lot. Last night we were out in it and I think it is the first time I have driven it using the headlights, and am I disappointed, the lenses are clear but there is not enough light to illuminate road signs,or road markings. I have heard the the X type has lighting issues,has the S type too?  My daily driver is a 20 year old Volvo with really good head-lights.

I soften see an S Type in my locality, and it is noticeable for have its headlight cover completely badly in need of a clean.  The fact that the state of them is noticeable made me have a good look at mine, which although they looked OK, still got a good clean.

It is possibly the headlamp covers that nee attention.

No,the lenses are as clean as a whistle, In normal driving the h/lights are not bad but when out in the sticks there is not enough light to read road signs or to show up road markings. The strange thing is when I put the car in the garage the lights are bright as you like.I tried the trimmers and they seem to work OK . Next step is to check the alignment and the actual candle power ,a friend of mine used to have a gizmo that did that ,lets hope he still has it.

I replaced all the bulbs with uprated Osram ones and they're great, especially the high beams. I didn't quite sit a bulb right when I did replace them and I had a dodgy headlight for a couple of months before I figured out what it was like - don't do that 👀
