What size Lamin-X foglight protection for MTech II?

http://www.modbargains.com/dept.aspx?dept_id=12-001-004

I want a pair of the clear laminate protectors for my new fogs, which are the OEM units that come with the MTechII front bumper (E46 sedan pre-facelift). I emailed Mike, but haven't heard back, and really want to get a set of these before they get chipped.

Does anyone know what size I need, or somewhere else I can purchase these?

Okay, but 20mm or 40mm? I could obviously measure, but I want to be sure before I order.

isn't that just how thick they are?
I got the blue ones before, and they were like 20mm or something (if I recall correctly)...and they were thick enough


edit: I just looked again at the blue one, and it states that it's only 17mils thick. Which means that even at less than 20mils, it's already thick enough to protect from rock chips. Unless of course, you go off-roading and see GIGANTIC rocks on a daily basis =O. Which in that case, I'd suggest you get a car bra along with 40mils thick Lamin-X LOLLL
