Safeguard your headlights without impeding light output or hiding their great looks. X-Pel Headlight Protection is the clear way to stop lens-cracking enemies from creating a hefty replacement bill of more than $300 per light.

This material boasts an incredibly clear finish that uses advanced UV-inhibitors to stop yellowing and clouding. Available in an array of tints to achieve a stellar, customized-look. Beyond looks, your clear headlight protection film can take a punch, including 1oz. stones fired at 120mph!
Each X-Pel 3M headlamp protector installs fast, too. Just carefully line the film up over your lights and press down. The pre-applied 3M adhesive backing does the rest to keep your X-Pel Headlight Protection in place.

I have installed these on a number of my vehicles, and have not been disappointed. They protect, are basically invisible, and are cheap insurance for the expensive HID lights. A little patience and they are not tough to install. Use the heat source as described.

Very Clear - Installation not as tough as led to believe. Make sure you take your time. Line it up correctly you do not want over the edges (cannot emphasize enough). Pay attention to curves and grooves, use low heat and hold in place using thumb as squeegee until it is adhered.

Headlight protectors are replacements for a 12 year old set. The headlight lenses were like new after cleaning off old adhesive. I followed the installation instructions which made the task easy. Ready for many more years of on and off road protection. Great product! PS This installation included fog light protection too.

...I have done a few of these before. With a heat gun I managed to get mine flat. Some water/adhesive still underneath but these covers/film are porous so eventually that will rid itself. Heat gun (maybe blow dryer...not sure) definitely required. Be careful not to let it sit on an area too long. I have ordered a completely different product (12 mil instead of this XPEL 30 mil). Also be certain you get a film with UV inhibitors. Typically not in the paint protection film.

I used the x-pel headlight protection on my 2009 Porsche 911 . With the curved headlight it was a little difficult to apply but it does look good and gives very good protection for the light.

These are thicker than I realized (that's a good thing). Went on as described. Even though I'm good at installing window tint/ clings, etc., still had some of the "milky spots" (as described). After one week they are "fading away" (as described). If all goes well, they will disappear completely over the next week or so, and the install will be perfection. Good purchase. Great price. Great product. Great experience!

Not a difficult install as long as you take your time, follow the instructions, and are patient and give them a week or two to settle. This is my second time using these and the experience has been the same both times. So little time and cost for such a meaningful long-term benefit.

I have used Expel Headlight protection for years. They are a bit pricey, but there really is no other alternative to protecting your headlights if you drive highway often. Installation can be tricky as the adhesive is very sticky. Using a hair blower to heat it prior to installation helps as well as using some soapy water. It will appear somewhat foggy right after install. Fear not, it will clear up after awhile once it dries compeltely.
