    Lamin-X Headlight Protection Film

    Hi all,

    Tried the fly-eyes kit today, and although easy to install, it looked pretty rubbish - kinda like the old Vauxhall Nova "tights over the lights" trick.

    So I have decided to go down the Lamin-X subtle tint film route instead.

    Just measured and costed it up for my car and it comes out at almost £82!!!!!
    There is no way I'm paying that for a bit of film.

    I'm assuming there is a cheaper alternative film that works just as well, anybody tried anything to good effect?

    Cheers

    Dan

    there is cheaper out there
    and this is really you get what you pay for.
    get some of the 15 quid stuff that does both lights,
    and you will end up buying lamin-X

    Hi Bez,

    Yes, I had a feeling that might be the case mate.

    Is Lamin-X really that good to justify the difference?
