Meguiar'sÂ® Headlight and Clear Plastic Restoration Kit
I was skeptical but...
I must admit, I was very skeptical of this product. I went home, masked off the body and went to work. I spent about 10 minutes per light at first, and it looked great. I then went back over it a second time and they are FABULOUS! Now my lights shine as if they were almost new and you saved me over $170 for both light! This product was well worth the $24 I paid. Thanks for the great product. This was used on a 2002 Honda Odyssey with original lights." Don't forget to follow the instruction!

Works, but not a miracle solution
This kit does work to polish headlights, but really that's all it does. Other kits come with sanding pads to actually remove scratches and haze, whereas this one only comes with a polishing attachment for a hand drill. It does make headlights look newer, but if you have an old car with really bad headlights, this will only work so well. I found it very effective on my tail lights as well as the plastic badge on the front of my car, but I'm not satisfied with the result on my headlight lenses. Consider the 3M kit with sanding pads for that.

Worst ball ever
I have always used Mothers products and I wanted to try this products since it was a few bucks less and I see a hudge difference between the two products.
This product is loosing hair and it gets all over the car what a mess. since the Mothers products is way better.
I'm going back to the store to exange the product,

Works pretty nice
All I gotta say is give it some elbow grease and if the plastic dosnt get any clearer after 2 or 3 more tries then that is it.

I just did the headlights on my 2001 Ford Taurus and man what a difference! Works really well but reapply a few times to get the best results. Overall im very happy with this product.

Easy to Use, Immediate Result
It's easy to use and you can see immediate result after a few minutes. However, for big scratches, you better use wet sandpaper to sand the headlight before you apply the polisher. It is not easy to buy wet sandpaper of grit 2000. In that case, I suggest to use 3M restoration kit which includes sandpaper.

Very good results!
I almost brought this one back to purchase the 3M version of headlight restoration kit. No regrets keeping the Maguiar! It appears to be at least double the effort with the 3M but you might get close to scratchless headlights.
The Maguiar product is one step(no sanding). Just clean your headlights before starting(use a scrubbing pad to get a clean lense). Do a quick tape job and then just go at it with the drill disk provided. I've done 3 waxing applications per light but I think 2 is sufficient. The 3rd didn't do much more. After each application use the cleaning cloth provided to buff your wax application and you're done.
I have to say that the lenses went from different shades of off white/yellowish to crystal clear color(did a 2002 Focus and 2005 Grand Caravan). It just doesn't take out the scratches/rock chips etc etc. Actually it does to a very minimum. The 3M product might do a better job since you're going to sand the lights. But for $20(on sale), the Maguiar product is a winning solution. I have no regrets using this product and after a little over an hour I had both vehicles done including washing the lights.

Very Good Product
I bought this product after seeing an "instant" Headlight clearing product. I understand that any oil or polish will give you a temporary improvement to your headlights. This one from Mcguirar's really works! I used my DeWalt cordless drill with the supplied pad and had wonderful results! The more times you use it, the better it works!
You can see by the headlights and taillights on this 2002 Chrysler Intrepid that it works! I also used it on our 2003 Honda Accord, and it worked equally as well!

An unbelievable difference
Just bought a 16 year old car and the headlights were yellow and didn't throw light beyond the front bumper. I bought Meguiar's on sale for $19.99 and was extremely satisfied with the end result. It was easy to use, and in 20 minutes my headlights were clear! I recommend this product! Very good results! And I have lots in the bottle left to use on other lights.

Pondered whether to use the 3M or the Meguiar's but like the idea of one application. Was totally amazed at the results. Worked like a charm and had both lens on my 12 year old Honda Odyssey restored to about 85%, Took a half hour to do both lens. Would highly recommend.
