Headlight lens protection film

Are any of you using this? If so what brand/supplier? I have full LEDs with active curve in my facelifted E350 (2016) and was wondering if the film affects the auto high beam sensitivity or any other functionality.

I keep my cars for 10+ years and want to use the film to avoid the cost of having to replace the lenses if they get scratched by road debris and to prevent lens clouding. Looking online I see that each OEM lens replacement assembly runs over USD $2000 as the lenses are not sold separately http://www.genuinemercedesparts.com/...omponents-scat

Thanks in advance for your help/advice!

Lamin-x is the film I have used in the past. It is available in different thicknesses and is extremely durable.

I used XPEL on mine. Fit perfect and was easy to install. Been on for 6 months without issue. Auto high beams work normal.

I'm using XPEL Headlight Protection Film on my, uh, longroof, Longroof. I also have the Lighting Package and have seen no ill effects on its ability to throw light or on any of its functionality.

Thanks all. I just ordered the XPEL. I plan to install it in time for a 2000 mile summer road trip in 10 days.
