I have them on my 328i headlights and foglights and they are invisible. Just be sure when you install them, not to touch the adhesive leaves fingerprints. The best way to install without leaving fingerprints (you will end up touching the adhesive side) is to first squirt an 50/50 solution of alcohol and water on your fingers first while you work with it. Any adhesive marks under the lenses will disappear after a few days. I love them and they offer a peace of mind.
