I have a pair of these on my headlights  - been on for two or three years, and they have become really badly crazed.  Has anyone else had this problem?

Yeah same for me, they have also gone really cloudy. I was debating trying to wet and dry them and then re-clear coat them.

That'll work fine. I've redone my rears several times like this, 800 wet and dry and 2k clear.

That's good to hear, I'll get cracking on mine at some point.

I've only just fitted some. Would it be worth a lacquer on them from new ? or a protective clear film ?

Probably wouldn't hurt, especially if it lives outside. If it's garaged mostly must be a lot less UV exposure

Lacquer them then put the PPF on them.

The problem isn't on the surface of the lens, the problem is hairline cracks in the plastic of the lens itself.

It will mask it a little I think. my rears had the hairline stress marks, I added a little black into the lacquer and you would never know tbh.

The UV coating should be good for two years, if you have problems before that point then please let me know as this is the minimum expectation from the UV coating supplier. There are other options out there, but they add a lot of haze to the lens from new, so it's a difficult balance to find

Is 2 years a good life expectancy for headlight UV coating? I ask as i need a new set of front lenses but don't fancy sanding back every couple of years.My RSMegane has the OEM headlight lenses with no issues  and shes 17 years old and lives outside

I'd have them 2k lacquered. A quick flat with 800 wet and dry and they're perfectly clear once done. Takes a long while for UV to affect it
