issues with putting PPF on Laser Lights?

Hey guys,

Has anyone ever had any issues putting ppf over their laser lights? Scheduled my ppf appointment this week and was asking if I would want to do the headlights. Mentioned some cars have delamination from it? Going to be Xpel ppf. I didn’t think it would do any damage it’s just a film. Let me know.

This is in their disclaimer “Headlights are not recommended for PPF installation due to HID feature and exterior coating. By authorizing "Prestige Car Wash Tint & Wrap LLC" to proceed with headlight film installation, the customer hereby acknowledges the risk, waives any claims”
