My headlight lenses are banged up, looking for a good place to puchase a new pair. Any recomendations? Also, any one with experience using the clear bra material on them...Any noticable difference in light output? thanks for the help

Theres a product called LAMIN-X Colored Films, it goes over the lense and protects them from rock chips and scraches.

The dealer is not the only place to get new lenses...

Go to www.bavauto.com
Click on the "Lighting" department
Then "Headlights and Buckets"
You'll find them for $40 each.

:D

you use a DA sander.....you use different grits on the lights until you get rid of the haze and scratches ....buff out with a 3m compound ..then brand new lights :) ...we acutally did a BMW yesterday ...and the lights were in very bad shape (323 wagon)....they werent quite new put very close once done....they were so bad we had to use 400 grit...
