Looks great. How much tint is that?

New York allows only 35% of light to be blocked. I always had darker tint, but this time around I don't think I want to worry every time I see a cop. Not sure if 35 is even worth it.

Yours looks great, but it's probably quite a bit more than 35% of light block.

I had film installed on a lot of my ML63 due to the heavy use of gravel chips used in winter sanding operations. My dealer did not recommend covering the headlights due to yellowing.

I am aware when the product first came out about yellowing but isnt the new stuff a lot better?

Yes no yellowing and certainly a must for headlights..complete front end and sides for that matter..too bad there's no application for the windshield too..

Yes, headlights are a must. The clear bra helps also getting dead bugs off. Although the installer told me he doesn't do lights anymore. Said he did a Cayenne and the film pulled off some protective coating on the lens.

I also have the clear bra on my ML350, on the entire front hood, bumper, mirrors and headlights. I plan to wax it once a month so the bugs don't stick. I think a great investment.

Same here in Cali. Double that if you do it through the dealership.

Does the clear bra interfere with the distronic sensors behind the front bumper?

I'm thinking of getting one installed.
