Has anyone put the protective film on their headlight lenses? I was considering the clear film like the clear bra material and then I saw a nice 996 with the yellow film and thought that looked really good. Anyone had the colored film installed, gotten a ticket and had to remove it?

Thanks in advance.

I have had the clear film on two vehicles, 996 C4S and my current 997C2S, a total of 4 driving years, no ill effects or tickets. Not sure of the effect of the yellow film, I think it is illegal here in Michigan,

Good Luck

Thanks for the reply Number3. I was looking at the yellow tint as I felt it gave it a little more of a European flavor. I talked to the shop that applied my clear bra and they said the film on the headlamp is easily removable if need be.

Hey Tony,

I realize you are looking for answers for yellow lens tint in particular and if it is legal... Do you have any cop friends? Maybe a good time to just ask them if they

look for that kind of stuff to ticket. I can only tell ya about my experience with the clear bra material

and that it can be easily removed if you get into trouble from your local traffic cops.. If it is just the lens you want material for you can buy the material pre-cut and it is very

easy to apply yourself. It is also not that expensive for just the lens'.

Any thing beyond that I would have a professional install it. A great installer can make all the difference in the world covering the hard to reach spots and making

the bra as "invisible" as possible and getting it to look great .

I highly recommend the clear bra, especially if you are meticulous like most of us and hate to see paint chips from rocks :cursing:

here is a website to look for pre cut material...

http://www.invisiblemask.com/

As far as tinting your lights just for the sake of looking cool... I doubt you would get in much trouble, but if you do, it is easily removed in a few minutes.

Just make sure they are using the right material... Not a window tint material that is thin and easily tears, but a strong protective film good enough to

protect you lens for hwy and racing. Unlike window tint that strips and breaks in pieces when you try to remove it... the clear bra material is very strong and hard to tear.

If you have to, You just pull it off SLOWLY in one piece.

Thanks Bill for the invaluable insight. I did have the clear bra professionally installed and while the guy was at my house he mentioned the headlights too. After seeing the 996 here in Pasadena, CA, with the yellow film on his headlights, I thought it looked good. The vendor that installed my clear bra said he could install the same material in the yellow film on the headlights and if I ran into a problem with local law enforcement, he could easily remove it. No cop buddies to ask but I may give it a try regardless as I believe the ticket would be a fix it only and not a fine (hope). Thanks again,

Tony
