3M Protective Headlight Film!

Just wanted to share w/ you all a good find.

I was searching for something to protect my motorcycle headlights from getting rock chips and other damages. I met someone who is a dealer in 3M protective film.
These are 30 mil (0.030") thick pvc coating that are made by 3M, are UV-resistant, designed not to yellow or fade in the sun. I liked it so much I bought and installed a set for my Commander and my Lexus, and my Sienna too.

The install on the Commander was pretty easy. Just use a blow dryer to adhere the film to the bends. The Commander took me 30 minutes, including the prep time to clean the headlights and foglights.

I did some scouting around on the net for this product. Here is a link to it's review on webbike world:

Other places I found the same Xpel stuff for around $85 a set for my Commander (headlights & foglights). The ebay stuff for cheap I do not trust...
The stuff I got are genuinely made by 3M, with the 3M label on the backing. They come in DOT-approved clear, as well as tinted (non-DOT approved) in light blue and yellow. They are computer cut custom to each vehicle make and model.

I can get the stuff for $60 + a $9(/set) flat rate shipping for a complete set for the Commander (and most other vehicles). On the Commander, this includes the headlights, front turn signals, and foglights, all areas that are vulnerable to rock chips.

If you are interested, just PM me with the make, model, and year of your vehicle along w/ the clear/color choice of film. I have them on and love them!
