Default Lamin-x??

Hey anyone here ever look into lamin-x for their headlights? I saw it offered on ddm and began to wonder how the glass lenses hold up over time.

I bought it for my headlights but didn't use it. I think they look bad. And I never had a problem with the headlights.
Fog lights are a different story. They can benefit from lamin-x since they are so low.

I can't remember the name of the brand, but I have had very good luck with covering the lights with clear vinyl on two of my cars including the ti. Price of a kit is 50-60 dollars. It's great preventive maintainence in my opinion.

Oh thanks for the heads up dave! Fogs are literally the next upgrade on my list. Man I'm glad I didn't order that lamin-x
As for the vinyl it really does sound like a good piece of preventative maintenance just like the lamin-x but i'm curious to see how it affects the headlight's clarity and beam pattern.
