    And todays little mod was??

    Hi all,
    Had a little bit of spare time today so decided to add the lamin-x headlight tint film, not too bad to work with and the light output looks to be the same aswell but a drive later will tell, just need my S4 lower grill and wheels to complete the exterior.

    Mine is the light tint, i also have some gunsmoke here which is a little darker, i got mine from the lamin-x USA site as it works out the same price as the uk one but is pre-cut and you get some for the fog lights.

    Looks much better! I put this on mine last year. Had light tint also. It does not affect the light output, however it seems to be shrinking now!

    I have this one that shows lights on but only one headlight tinted but as you can see very little difference.

    I opted for the cheapest postage and got an email saying it could take upto 2 weeks to get here, but it arrived after 8 days and i didn't pay any import duty but that was just luck i suppose,

    It is fairly easy to use, just heat it up as much as you can with a hair dryer before you place it on the lenses, this'll make it softer and more manageable. Its quite forgiving though if you need to peel it back and re-do a bit. I found the best way to get all or most of the bubbles out was to have someone help by slightly stretching the film as it's applied and constantly use the squeegy thing provided to firmly press the film onto the lenses as it's being applied.

    As Will says it can seem to shrink a little over time so be sure not to cut it too close the edge of the light. As the edges are unseen you can afford to hang it over by a bit. Got me thinking now about this too now...............

    They look really good, quite subtle - but changes the look of the front end. Just looking at the website, did you get the 6% tints or the 12% gunsmoke?
