Why can't he clear bra your head lights? Is he clear braing your car from scratch or a precut clear bra? Should be easy to be honest.

The person who did my tint has been doing it since the early 90s and comes highly recommend. He is the go to guy for BMWs, Porsches, Ferraris, Lambos, etc.. He told me he has done a custom cut and pre-cut clear bra on the headlights without any issues. I was thinking of going pre-cut since it's a lot cheaper than custom.

I got the precut headlights and it was a pain to do. The compound curves were just too difficult for me. Good luck on your install. If you're able to get it on please give me some pointers on how you did it. I really want to install mine.

For the price your gonna pay for the front end, hood, and lights your almost at 340+ taxes. I don't know if I would go that route since you would still have to install it on your own. Ive seen most window tint places in southern AZ quote you at 340-380. The good side to paying a lil more is having it installed correctly.

I had mine done and a few of my other cars, never had any problems. But I'm all the way in Canada though... or I'd recommend this super reputable guy. I even have my taillights and the rear bumper reflector lightly tinted, all custom so not pre-cut.
