    I bought Lamin-X clear headlight film back in September 2010, and after almost seven years of abuse, it was looking a little rough.

    So I peeled it off and replaced it. The condition of the headlights underneath the film was astounding.

    I did absolutely no polishing of the headlights. Just took off the old film. The moral of the story is use headlight film, kids.

    I agree, but it is nice to see an actual result. I have film on all of our headlights, and on my MS3, I put in new headlights and immediately had the film applied. Small price ($95) of the film is a lot less than replacing the units!

    Very nice! I'm getting another set of headlights and was going to add film. Couldn't decide what brand, was thinking maybe 3m since I've had luck with their other products.

    Actually, it's not. I just polished the headlights on Erika's 2012 Pu, then applied headlight film.
