Broken DRL Lens on 4x4 Antarctica

Well after a couple of months I've got my first big problem. A stone chip not on the screen but on the DLR lens and not so much of a chip but more of a massive hole!

So the car's going in for a few bits to be checked out under warranty and I asked for a price to replace the lens. I've been quoted 133!!!

This seems extremely steep to me. Can anyone give me a view on this?

I posted a link to these a while ago. Not sure if this is just the bulb and they don't list the 4x4 variant but it is a lot less than you've been quoted.

Re: Broken DRL Lens on 4x4 Antarctica

You can buy clear, orange or red repair tape from Halfrauds for a couple of bucks.
This will keep the water out until you replace it, looks like Philboo has linked to a reasonable priced replacement (reasonable AND Dealer don't often go together in the same sentence!)

If you trim the tape up well, clean and dry the lens, you can cover the new one (and the other) this should help cushion the lenses from further blows.
