Clear Bra and Xenons

Does anyone have any idea if clear bra for Xenons voids the warranty? I spoke to one dealer and he mentioned that it could because of the intense heat from the Xenons.

Ridiculous. Void warranty on what exactly? The xenon bulb?

BTW, xenon bulbs burn COLDER than standard halogen. That's why in Europe its the law that you must have headlight washers with xenons - they don't get hot enough to melt snow.

The guy was telling me that the heat from the lights is hotter than normal headlights and the clear bra would or could cause premature wear of the xenons or cause them to malfunction. I was planning on calling X-pel and see what they have to say. I was wondering if anyone here heard anything.

Hum, I would suspect any paint issues under the bra could be transitioned to the film company (i.e.finger pointing). But this would be highly irregular.

I spoke to another member who is also a salesman and he mentioned that it would not void the warranty and if there were any problems to just bring it in and it will be fixed.
