your best bet is to take it back to the dealer, that's who covers the warranty. 3M is 5 years against yellowing and cracking. If it's peeling, that's an installer warranty issue. If it's just yellowing then it should be covered if you have the receipt.

Damn. I don't have receipts being the second owner of this car which came from Alberta Bmw dealership.

Is it advised against to cover the headlights in the 3m film to protect them?

the 3M film for headlights is a bit thinner and is DOT approved. it's not a tint, it's clear.
it's usually only $250 or so to replace the whole h/f paint protection film. if it's just a portion that you need replacing then it's cheaper.
pm me for details
