I plan on getting Valeo E-Codes eventually, and I want to protect my investment, so what color do you think would go best with a Silver car? thanks!

Details:
-Silver car
-Silver accents (keeping the car on the lighter side...silver rims ect.)
-I am liking the clear option myself

do u have a problem with ur headlights now? im confused why u would need to put a film over plastic it cant really chip or be damaged to where ya cant just polish it out i would think that you would have problems getting bubbles in the plastic and looking stupid just wondering

they will inevitably get pitted over time due to normal driving conditions, my current headlights are pitted, and I would like to avoid doing that to e-codes

clear or yellow IMHO.

blue is overdone, you already have HID, no need to pretend.

Tint or smoked would be cool but it would hinder the light output in an unfavorable way.

my friend did laminez on his headlights and the heat from the bulbs actually started to melt and bubble the film and damaged his headlights far worse than 1 year of driving would have

just called 'em, its $30 for any thickness, and he said they're raited for a 55 watt bulb, but they wont warrenty it for anything more than that, so I dont know if its a good idea. The guy I spoke with went on to say that the sometimes the adhesive melts, but not the plastic...thats just as bad to me...it still ruins the lense...Im getting weary of this now

35w hid bulb doesnt radiate that much heat compared to a 55w halogen.

7 years to get pitted or risk the plastic film bubbling and still getting chipped hmm[down] keep them clean and stop tailgating [:D]
