    UV protectant for composite headlights?

    I have new headlight assemblies on our 2012 SRX. Is there any product that will provide UV protection to eliminate the clear lenses from becoming cloudy and/or yellowed? I imagine a high quality clearcoat, but just don't have enough knowledge on what products would be appropriate.
    Thanx!

    Re: UV protectant for composite headlights?

    UV rays clouding your headlight bezels are just one issue to consider for expensive headlight protection. A pebble thrown from a tire of a vehicle ahead of you can damage the headlight bezel requiring expensive replacement. Kill two birds with one stone using Ex-pel or 3-M headlight protectors. I've used them on all of my vehicles for years. They're easy to apply and the headlights still look like new. Google for more info.
