    as above but lamin-x

    id the best light tint I have used and iv used around 7 different kinds.
    used lamin-x around 30 times if applied correct it lasts and you still get good output with it applied.

    I used it to smoke out my rear lights, very easy to apply. It's a cheap modification but visually made a big difference for me

    They don't do pre cut for the 8v so I ended up buying a big roll thinking I might cock the first one up :p

    Got these fitted a few days ago. Fairly easy to do. Despite numerous YouTube videos making out like its a tough job.

    Hardest part was cutting the excess and not slipping and taking a chunk out of the body work :p

    Few pics. Iphone (so not the greatest)

    Very happy with the results. When light hits them it gives off a nice blue reflection. Also tints them a bit. May use the darker grey tint for the main headlights? What do you think?

    Is it just the look you don't like, or do you mean there is some sort of physical negative with it? I only ask as I'm planning to cover the fogs on my other car with yellow Lamin-X.

    I've got some yellow lamin X that came free with my headlight order... I'm torn as to whether to take the blue off that I already have and use the yellow?

    Down to your own personal taste, I guess. I'll be doing it on a blue car and I reckon it'll look pretty good. The car is fairly extensively modified though and part of my motivation is wanting to do something original and different. Easy enough to peel it off if you don't like it!
