Anyone try this film at the site below? I heard of the clear-bra that 3M makes I think. What about the one below for protecting the lights.

I've heard of it, I think they offer different colors too, guess it might be worth it to give it a shot...Im just afraid after 2+ years down the road taking the stuff off and having ruined headlights.

Laminex has great products and service. Their film is much thicker than the 3M stuff, and there is no residue when it is removed. I had their products on my BMW for five years and was very happy with it.

My headlights and ambers are getting beat up, hell the whole bottom spoiler is also for that matter.
JS what color did you put on? I'm thinking about the blue but I don't know. The blue may stop other traffic from thinking I have my brights on.

Yeah I can't drive down the highway without getting new hits on the front facia and/or hood. :(
Clear Bra kits have been ordered for my car and the dealership should be putting them on later today or early next week, whenever they get in.

I used the Laminex blue tinted film on the fog lights of my BMW to try to get a better match of the fog light color to that of the xenon headlights. It worked, but only after I changed the stock fog bulb for a Silverstar. In the case of the V, you might as well use the clear film, because the blue tint will also cover your xenon low beam (making it "bluer" - if that's a word). Even if you change the high beam bulb to a Silverstar, your xenon low beam's color will be very different than your high beam light color.

I have my headlights covered on my Corvette with the 3M film. It's been on for three years with no problems. I have had peices replaced and if there is any residue they use some 3M Adhesive Remover. I have never heard of Laminex, it sounds similar.

I purchased this kit:

http://www.weathertech.com/store/vehsearch.asp?make_id=10&year_no=2004&veh_id=790&item_group_id=2&veh_opt_choice_id=0

This kit is strictly for the lights and includes both headlights, both windshield washer triangle pieces, both driving lamps. The material is a very thick 40 mil 3M film (the best there is, in my eyes); it's thick, and there is very little that can inflict damage on it in the way of normal sized debris.
