SPi Vision Guide Note
High-intensity discharge light bulbs (H.I.D/Xenon) may cause excessive heat build-up under sustained high beam use. This may result in melting of the vinyl. Normally, if the high-beam bulb has a silvered tip or a cowling in front of it, then this should be acceptable.
If you are fitting this product to headlights, check your headlight configuration before applying. Light clusters that have a protective coating or lacquer are unsuitable for applying SPi Vision. Like many vinyls, it may damage this coating when the SPi Vision is removed. You should check for a protective layer before any installation of the SPi Vision.
SPi Vision may not be suitable for installation on to non-factory or aftermarket fitted light clusters or where high intensity bulbs have been installed above factory guidelines. You must check before installation that the headlight is suitable.
