Could the engineer have altered something ?
Hi gareth here regarding the xenon lights they do get condensation in the lenses it tells you that in your hand book it clears when they are on its not a fault on my vel satis they do the same these lights use 20,000 volts on start up and drop down too about 28 volts after that hope this puts your mind at rest Gareth.
