DB9 headlight plex covers cracking. 

Has anyone come across an issue with their headlight covers breaking into a find spider cracks and also the plastic clouding? Any solutions would be appreciated.

Not enough information in your post Roth. Do you live in a hot country, is it outside under the UV all the time etc?

Hello Duncan,
Yes, I live in Los Angeles, I use the Aston as my daily driver and it's stored in a garage at night.  The temperature here  ranges from 49 to 85 degrees.

Well I think that might be the answer, UV destroys plastic. If your car is parked out in the sun every day it's getting a lot of damage. I would think you must also get terrible leather shrinkage inside the cabin as well. The only solution is keep it out of direct sun as much as possible.

You need to have the headlight lenses re-furbished. You can buy a kit on Ebay. . Or get a buffer, some G3 Farecla Paste and some 2000 grit wet and dry.

Keep the front out of direct sunlight when parked up if you can.
