Just a quick one, I've been recommended to get a set of fly eyes for my fiesta but I'm not to sure on them.

Has anyone ever fitted them and if so how did they look?

Also just wanted to get people opinion on them and if they think its a worth while mod

cheers


I have had fly eye tint on my rear lights for nearly 6 months doesnt seem to have faded at all and I like the look of it :)

Previous car had headlight protectors on that at £20 a pair saved me a £100 headlamp unit replacement, but I don;t see the film really stopping a flying stone to make it worthwhie as a protector.

Ah.

Ford=Win implied they were more a grid than just a cosmetic film. Sorry for the confusion...

I'll add my two pennies worth here regarding fly eyes.They are purely cosmetic and do not protect your lights.I had it fitted on my fez when i first bought it in 2010 was the first mod i did and it did look good especially with me having a dark blue car.I had the stuff on for atleast a year and it never come unstuck,but it did eventually fade,when i say fade i mean the black actually comes off as its printed or sprayed onto white (why they did this is beyond me) and they look really tatty and poor.This was the kick in the knackers for me.When i removed the stuff off my headlights it left cracks tiny ones everywhere that are noticible.the reason i think this happened was because one the sun has been shining on them for long periods of time it doesnt let the polycarbonate expand and contract like it naturally should do when there is nothing applied to them.So be warned even though it looks good cosmetically it can damage your headlights.

Sweet,
is their any perticular brand of the stuff that you used, because i spoke to a mk2 focus owner before on another forum who said he removed his due to the brightness of the light being cut,
but them again i didnt ask if he wore glasses lol

Brightness of the light being cut? Wow. I've been driving in the pitch black and it looks exactly the same as before.

I used www.flyeyeskit.com 'coz their reputation was second to none and I can't fault it either
