    Headlight replacement

    Getting new headlights replaced under warranty due to peeling lenses. The service department says the headlights need to be programmed? The car is a 2014 Cayman S with standard headlights, why would they need to be programmed?

    Hmmmm, this would be interesting to understand better, they should explain this to you if you ask, at least as it is warranty the 'programing' will be covered!

    I was going to say they might need programming for left and right movement but you said standard headlights. Perhaps "Programming" really means leveling them and making sure they are pointed straight ahead.
