Is anyone doing any protective film for their headlamps? I got a quote for $48 per light to be wrapped with xpel which seems pretty high, I want to protect my headlights against cracks from rocks and possibly prevent the plastic from turning milky color after some years like you can see on many older cars.

My first C7 got the xpel treatment. I payed 50 for each light, which I thought wasn't too bad. I haven't done anything with the red C7 because it's always garaged, and I rarely drive it. If I drove it all over the place, I'd probably get the whole front done again. Shop around because some places love to over charge.

What can't you use opti coat 2.0 on? Didn't realize you could use it on the plastic headlights no problem.

XPEL(tm) HEADLAMP PROTECTION FILM PREVENTS DAMAGE, DETERIORATION

Optically Clear Patented Material Provides Years of Protection

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - XPEL(tm) Headlamp Protection Film is an optically clear, press-polished 30 mil material that features a patented, scratch-resistant coating nearly impossible to scuff. Headlamps must stand up to years of pitting and sandblasting caused by rocks, debris and road salt, which causes unsightly discoloration and reduced light output.

Delivering unmatched durability, stability and longevity, XPEL Headlamp Protection Film prevents shattered lenses, and has been proven to withstand damage from the impact of 1-inch diameter stones hurtling at 120 mph into the lamp. The film is manufactured with the strongest, optically clear, non-yellowing adhesive available, enhancing the lifespan of the product and allowing for an unprecedented 7-year warranty.

Available for a broad range of vehicle makes and models, including universal headlight kits for older vehicles, XPEL's Headlamp Protection Film is available in sheets or in precision precut kits, and in clear or dark smoke (for show-car and off-road use only). XPEL's Headlamp Protection Film and its entire line of paint protection products are available at Paint Protection Film - XPEL Technologies Corp..

RedC7 you do not want to use their 30 mil film. Its too thick. Just get either Xpel Ultimate film or Suntek... both are self healing and will prevent chips and headlight oxidation.

Glen-E happy to see your on here also promoting your Opti-Coat, but it doesn't prevent rock chips. A protective film is the only option here.
