Has anyone used this product and if so, I was told that it is for show or offroad use only, have you had any problems with tickets or trouble with the law?? Thanks in advance.<p><A HREF="https://www.xpel.com" TARGET="_blank">https://www.xpel.com</A>/

Re: Xpel Headlight Protection (GAS60RMAN)

I'm guessing your source is telling you this if you go with a tinted color of film? I have the clear film and put them on after I had to get a headlight replaced because of a rock from a truck which shattered the light. Thank god for comprehensive insurance but I just dont want to risk it again when these lights are easily over $1k. And no, I obviously have not had any problems with tickets/inspection with the CLEAR xpel

m3ntos had the smoke tinted ones, hated them because they reduced light output too much. Couple people have the blue ones, you might get a ticket for those. The clear ones no one will ever know they are on and they work well.

Hey Jack I have the tinted ones from Lamin-X for a while now and no tickets great light pattern still. And they have stood up to many track days so Lamin-X get my vote. The only down side is they look alittle purple for a week or so until they cure.

I ordered the fog lamp protectors yesterday, gonna put them on Friday. I want to get the blue head lamp, but I have <b>GiRaff3</b>'s blue and yellow fender stripes and I was worried that may be TOO much blue and yellow.<p>One day I'll get the blue covers, I'm sure.

Re: Xpel Headlight Protection (MancUnited1)

Yeah I saw someone on here with the same setup as mine... TiGrey and Black Pegs, and he installed the blue tinted ones, but like I said I dont need anymore heat from the police around here... They already bust my b*lls about my tint, allI need is a ticket for impersonating a cop or something... ( And I know my lights do not flash, but thats how stupid they are around here) They would try and pull something like that off...

How hard is it to switch between clear and smoke?

Re: Xpel Headlight Protection (sinisin63)

From what I heard from the guy I called about installing Xpel on my car, he says its kind of a pain taking it off, but that it is not a permanent add-on.

Mine has the blue film; no problems with the pigs. Looks awesome & does a great job protecting the headlights. Not aware of previous owner having problems with cops either. Blue has not affected my lights and/or output.<p><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0450_2.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>

Just peel it off and throw it away. It doesn't use adhesive or anthing like that. I just put a set of clear headlight/foglight protectors on last week with no problems, although I had to remove one to reposition it. It came off no problem and did not leave any residue (of course).<p>On a related note, I notice that I now have vertical lines in my headlight pattern after I installed the protective film. Is this normal, or did I mess up the install?

Re: Xpel Headlight Protection (jclough)

I have no idea if you installed right, bc I have not applied it yet... I was only going off what the guy that was going to do the install told me... I would have it professionally done just for the simple fact that Im retarded when it comes to installing anything... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
