Application was a little difficult due to the way the lights bend. 2 sets of hands, a hair dryer and lots of water. I am not happy the way they went.on and you can tell up close, so probably in the spring I will re do them.

When you were looking for tail light tint, did you look at any other options besides lamin-x? Wondering if there is a better option for film that won't be such a pain to install. I could see how the shape of the tail lights would make it difficult.

no. I ran Laminx on my Subaru too.,It is the best out there. All tint will be difficult because of the bends. If you take your time, it can be applied with perfection. just need paitence.

Impossible. LEDs burn at a much lower wattage and temperature than halogens.

Re: 2012 Altitude

I want my Altitude to look like yours when it grows up. I was 50/50 on the splash guards but after seeing them on your ride I think they may be my first addition.

Re: 2012 Altitude

Thanks JDamian. I did not like then at first but they are growing. The bigger tires help to offset the size of them. Too much crap on the roads in my area to not run without them.

Re: 2012 Altitude

Stupid question...do the splash guards decrease the mpg when driven at highway spped? I am on the Interstate a lot at 75 mph for 20 + miles each way to town. With E-85 we were seeing 14.1 mpg, after switching back to Regular, we are seeing 21+ on a 2013 V6. I have the splash guards, but have been reluctant to install them, do to the possible increase in drag. Am I over thinking this?
