Lamin-X true or false?

Hey everyone, I've seen a lot about "Lamin-x".... as I am about to get new headlights for my 01 ZX3, i was wondering, "should I get some of this Lamin-x?"
Is this something that does actually work or is it just another one of those things that doesnt. if anybody has any experience with Lamin-x, please share your stories. any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
ALSO, i am getting some SVT black housing lights, will i need to get the svt lamin-x film, or the normal lamin-x film? may be a stupid question, i just want to get it right. Thanks everyone!

Lamin-x is great it helps keep lights chip free from stones and bugs. All 00-04 Focus headlights are the same shape. The difference is the fog lights. I have it and love the stuff. My Subaru has it on the headlights(clear), fog lights(yellow), and tail lights(smoke color).

peels right off too, so if you end up not liking it for some reason its easy to return to stock.

Do not get any colored ones for the headlights either, just going to act like sunglasses decreasing your light throw
