    Having tonight driven our 97 S70 in the dark, its obvious that dipped beam
    is awful. Main beam is good.

    Closer inspection of the reflectors shows that they are crazed and dull,
    probably from 10 years of the car running around with the DLR dipped beams

    Are the reflectors available separately from any source, or has any one had
    any success with say, re-spraying them with automotive silver paint or

    Check with a wrecking yard, or Volvo for a unit.
    Not a good idea. The heat of the bulb will likely create a huge mess
    and I don't think you will find a spray on product with the proper
    reflective properties.

    No way to repair, that's a special coating. I don't believe that the
    reflectors are available separately, but you may be able to get some
    good ones inside lights with broken housing and/or lenses.

    Tim, I found this site for headlight lenses (actually lights all
    around) for my 86 240 DL.
