Haven't seen to much on this and I'm pretty sure I know why.
What's everyone think of these CF headlight covers (eyelids). Yay or Nay? Why so expensive? $100 seems steep for stickers.

Ricey?
Pics?

I have some and they weren't too expensive they were Amazon.
Also they are not stickers, and i think they look nice and so do other people.

Got a picture from your car with them on? Curious to see how it looks on white.

Pretty sure they're not stickers and in my opinion they look great

EDIT: Quick google search and found these. They look sharp

I think they highlight the gaps where the hood, bumper, and fender meet. Headlights ain't cheap either. If they're on for an extended period of time or you sell the car and try taking them off, I'd expect some discoloration. Just my take.

Not ricey at all. Looks good with white IMO and all my other CF parts.

I bought them from Autoteknic as well.

Looks like RW Carbon & AutoTecknic both make them for ~$100.

Does anyone have them installed with the adaptive LED LCI II headlights? If so, any issues or interference w/the turn signal?

It covers the ugly chrome strip on the top of the headlight, which is a huge improvement IMO. Would be nice if they came in gloss black or a factory paint match color instead of CF.

I have the ones from RW Carbon, but last week my MF mitt caught the pointy edge of the eyelid and actually cracked it. Time for some amazon replacements.

I bought a set and love them, really subtle highlight and adds a nice bit of contrast. My only issue is that after about a year they started fading. I'm just going to upgrade the headlights eventually but if I were to do it again I would ceramic coat them or something like that.
