I just purchased an 05 Elise and immediately noticed a 'defect' with the headlight covers. I've searched and read about a lot of issues (burning, other types of scratches) but couldn't find any pics of this problem. I have the same effect on both headlight covers.

Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, were you able to get it repaired under warranty?

Here's a picture. It looks like tape residue, but it's not. In fact, you can feel that it's not a buildup at all, but instead part of it is flaking off. Thanks for the help and sorry in advance if this was posted earlier. :bow:I did look, but there are a ton of 'headlight' issues to wade through that are not related.

Pics:
1)Closeup of peeling /flaking.
2) Area where this is visible.

I had this happen on my 06 as well. It started on the showroom floor and got progressively worse. I took it to the dealer and they warrantied both of them. I think the cost is around $800 a piece so if you're under warranty take care of it ASAP!

Thanks for the input. Just to 'close' the thread, got it to the dealer today and they replaced them both under warranty. It looks sooooo much better :D
