    Lamin X tint on e36 headlights

    Has anybody used it on e36 headlights as I've got a few questions
    How easy and how do you fit it?
    And how did you get around the 5 or so little bobbles along the top of the headlight?

    Easy to use IMO (have used it before tho......)

    Start applying the film from the bottom of the headlights working towards the bloobs. Heating the film with a hairdryer helps it mould over the bloobs & around the corners.........

    I used SubtleTint on my headlights & rear lights

    I bought some tint film and tried tilting my lights but it keeps creasing where the lights curve

    Might have to give the lamin x a go u think
