Powerbronze do some in various colours, only some colours are road legal in UK. Clear clearly are  :002:

I went for a clear pair of Slipscreens.

https://www.slipscreens.co.uk/bmw-s1000-xr-2015-headlight-protector-3315/

They seem okay, and when I mentioned that there was one fixing short - in the pack.......

They sent me a bag-full  :152:

Good company to deal with - I'd say.

Clean the glass and local areas of the protectors with surgical spirit to ensure the hook-pads stick well.

I took the viewpoint I'd rather be looking at that, than looking at the invoice for a new light unit.

Not sure if any other make is any more aesthetically-designed?

Yes true but still wouldn’t. Not seen any others about which look appealing.

I Looked at the powerbronze but more money, and fixings appear to be the same. Only way round that is a darker colour but not legal here.
But I followed Mareng1s view. I have bought them for the protection not the aesthetics.

I went with some clear bra stuff. Suntek brand. Goes on easy, trim around the perimeter, and protects from (further) rock chips.
