Got these installed today on the headlights. I had to do it quickly as it was taking a bit too much time and I had a wedding to get to. I might pull them off and reapply tomorrow morning before the meet we're having out here. I'll get the fog lights on there too at the same time.

Lets just say it took a lot of heating to get them to fit properly. A good hair dryer on max heat and max fan, and a lot of patience.

You need a lot of patience. Start with the very center, stretch it upward, and work your way to the sides one half at a time, one vertical inch at a time, and use as little soapy water as possible. The end product is great. I have a few bubbles in mine that I'll have to get out tomorrow with some more heating and pushing out to the edges.

I'm going to work on getting the bubbles out tomorrow. I had read that they're supposed to slowly disappear in their own, but I'm not going to wait.

Headlight performance has been very minimally affected, if at all, and you can see the turn signals perfectly well even in broad daylight. I'll try to get some more pictures tomorrow.
