I wonder if you did a yearly or semi yearly ceramic coating if that would make a difference?
That would be pretty cool to see

All ceramic coatings worth a damn claim UV protection. Some claim 6mo, some claim 5yrs of protection. And everything inbetween, all with varying price points. Most are in the $60-$100 range, but it can do multiple cars. Here we're talking only headlights, so for $60, you'll be able to do like a hundred pairs of headlights...

I'm going to do it to mine this week or next. I may make it a routine maintenance process twice a year or so as part of my normal wax/polish schedule for the whole car.

Is it pretty easy to do? And is it the same kinda of ceramic coating they us on regular paint?

Same.

Clean, wipe with a denatured alcohol mix, apply ceramic coating, buff. Possibly repeat for another coat. There are some spray on stuff that has easier application, but lasts less in time.

I always protect headlights with a 600, 800 & 1500 grit wet sand (depending on condition) then topcoat with Spraymax 2K Glamour clear coat (#368 0061) and they don't fade, stay crystal clear & haven't chipped either.

Thank you guys, I will give that a try, I don’t need the bulbs because I have Kevin’s led bulbs and they work great! I guess I will start off by ordering a new set of GM headlights and than protect them this time with some ceramic coat sealant

The best "actual like replacement I found were the ones on Amazon, and here is the link; https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JW200MA/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
These were almost identical in every way to OEM. I ended up returning and going with the blacked out ones, but I gave this a great product review as they are so close to OEM.

Nice! Do they have the passenger side too?
Yes, when you go to the link it does give you "left or Right" side choices. They're decent quality for sure!
