A while back I picked up a set of yellow Lamin-X headlight and fog light covers for my B7 Audi S4 – these are custom cut film covers that go over your headlight and fog light lenses to protect them as well as tint the color of the lens. You can choose from yellow, smoke, clear, blue, and other finishes, so it’s a great way to tint your lights or just protect them, depending on what you’re going on. You can buy the fog lights only for <$20 or headlights and tail light covers for about $50, so it’s a pretty affordable way to change the look of your car:

Clear:

Yellow:

Blue:

Smoked/Tint:

Red:

Installation is pretty straightforward, it’s much like a really big sticker. The challenge is to apply the Lamin-X so it doesn’t leave any bubbles – they supply a water mister and a beveled edge so that you can push the air bubbles out, but it’s pretty tricky and time-consuming to get it right. The good news is that some of the bubbles will work themselves out, so after about 30 minutes of carefully installing and pushing out bubbles, mine turned out really well. The main headlights are definitely harder to install than the fog lights given the headlights are bigger and more oddly shaped, whereas the fog lights are nice and small and a pretty regular shape (circle).

I mainly installed these for looks to give my car a “track day” look, although I took off the headlight covers after about a week as it was just too aggressive looking and wasn’t clean enough for me; however, I kept the fog light covers and really like the little bit of contrast they provide.

What I didn’t expect was the Lamin-X film does change the color of the light, giving it a yellow hue, as you can see in the photo above. This is great for the fog lights to give the car a neat look when the fogs are on, but another reason I was glad to take them off the headlights as  it made everything look yellow at night and probably would look suspicious to cops to see a car with all yellow lights.

You can pick up a set for about $65 and install them yourself, so if you’re looking for a cheap way to give your car a new look, definitely check it out!

  1. I think it looks cool but since you did the clear mod it kind of hid that. I agree it looks better without the yellow on the headlights. Maybe the clear mod and a blue tint would have looked better?

  2. Not bad. I went with the yellow bulb route. You have white HIDs normally?

  3. yeah, the headlight & fog light bulbs are all 6000k right now (whitish blue), so the yellow is all due to the tint of the Lamin-X 🙂

  4. Perhaps…I didn’t care for the headlights being yellow much, I took it off in under a week, but it was fun while it lasted I suppose 🙂

  5. Did you remove your fog lights when applying or did you just stick the Lamin-x straight on the the fog lights while mounted. Thanks!

  6. I took the grilles off (which just pop out by pressing in tabs) but left the fog lights on the car and just washed them really clean.

  7. It’s a good idea that we use cover for the fog lights, I’ve tried it with the red lamin and it great! But I don’t think we should use cover for headlight, because it will limit our sight. Anyway, thanks for your nice post!

  8. Great post, it’s really helpful for me. Thanks!

  9. I think I’ll buy the smoke cover for my fog lights. Thanks so much for this recommendation!
