I don't think so. I know they should have it at a local dealership unless they just don't carry BG products. It's a little more coin then other kits but its a million times better and lasts longer

I called AM when my lights starting peeling and they just made me send pics of the lights to an email and then they sent me a new pair for free and I just had to send the old ones back free of charge!

If urs are stock then they probably wont, at least shouldnt. I got a 3m kit from walmart, ive seen them at auto parts stores too. It takes a little TLC but its easy, u have to follow directions, if u dont then u will be one of those people who say they dont work. Mine look like new.
