Best headlight covers?

Hi wanted to buy plastic headlight covers (to protect) for an E92.

Any recommendation?

I've ordered these from griots my last couple of cars. Work great. Stay clear. Good protection. I think the web site doesn't show for M3, but I just ordered 3 series. Works the same.

Shows M3 under the 2008's. I guess E92 and E90 are the same.

Will order them. Thanks!

Yes, they are completely transparent once they cure. Installation is kind of tricky. When you order them also get the application spray. Even if done right, they won't cure up for a day or two. And now that you mention it, I think all they listed was '08 when I ordered mine also, but they're all the same. I have an 09.

Xpel brand, http://www.xpel.com/products/headlight_protection.asp

Easy to install , use a mix of water and alcohol spay on both the headlifgt and the film. position the film and squeege out the air. A hair dryer helps to get the wrinkles out. Do not get finger prints on adhesive side of film.
Done a bunch of cars, Good stuff.

Says it has "adhesive-backed". Do I still need the spray???
I order the plastic yesterday and hasn't been shipped, so I may be able to add it to the order.

BTW, for the future.. is there any discount code for griot?
