Came across this when looking for some headlight options. I'd be probably interested in the light black tint for a subtle darker look. What do you guys think? ..anybody wants to try it out first?? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><A HREF="http://www.nextlevelride.com/store/2004-volvo-s60-r-headlight-cover-s60r.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.nextlevelride.com/s....html</A><br>

I've seen other members with this. 1 with the blue and another with the yellow. I THINK someone else just did the dark tint on the headlights, if I recall. I would at least go with the clear to protect the lights from rocks/debris.

I've used the Lamin-X brand many times before, looks fantastic and very durable. I say give it a try with the light one, it's going to look awesome on your murdered out setup. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (-Pascal)

Others have used Xpel, which is much more expensive. The Xpel looks nice and their are dealers to apply it. The downfall is that it does not 100% cover the light, it leaves the edges exposed...

Mind you, Smoke XPEL is not for the feint of heart...nighttime visibility is reduced. Quite a bit. If your R is your only car, I would not recommend this mod.

I was looking for something lighter though so visibility would be there and I would not be harassed by the cops in the area.
