    Anyone used the Lamin-X film on their headlights?, was thinking about having a go with the subtle tint on the headlights and yellow for the fogs.If it looks gash apparently it's easy enough to remove!

    This is some "Euro fanboi" thing that is done to Clio's a hell of a lot. Really don't like it myself, but personal taste and all that.

    I think it looks ok to be honest, but only on the right colour car, giving the more agressive look.

    There is a MASSIVE thread on it on the 8P forum, so might be worth having a look over there to get some more info on it.

    Think its only meant for the headlights as well, as im sure i read that someone used it on their fogs and they left a burn mark.

    I would be tempted to use the clear on my headlights after I have polished them. Looks like its similar material to the Invisible Shield range of gadget screen protectors and that stuff rocks...

    Wouldn't want to use a colour though...
