FWIW - I will just mention that I have tried this kind...and the kind for about $15 that you use with an electric drill. There is NO comparison. The one like this lasted for about 2 weeks and then looked awful again. The one with the drill I did over a year ago, and still looks brand new.

Bought something similar and it only removed about 1/4 - 1/3 of the "fog" from lens, if that.

IMHO, search for reviews for this exact brand/kit, and study them carefully.

Because in my experience, I would have been better served to save my money and get new headlamps instead.

I usually use paste colgate and it works just fine.

These "Daily Deal" type sites seem to be featuring these crappy lens restoration kits on a regular basis lately. As I have posted before, Consumer Reports reviewed them last March and found that only 2 were worth considering: Sylvania and 3M in that order. But both required quite a bit of work in several stages - not just a smear it on and wipe it off type affair as these deals imply.

Can you name the 15 dollar product?

I have used this and it works pretty good: 3M headlight restoration kit

dont buy this one... you will be disappointed...

The 3M product that cathwats noted is really great! It made the yellowed lens on our 2001 Civic look brand new and are still clear after about 8 months.

No drill version? That's gotta be junk. Might as well use a 'Magic Eraser' ... it's just as effective.

i have used the 3M version and was pleasantly surprised.

The Turtle Wax version didn't work very well. Recently tried 3M and as others have mentioned was very pleasantly surprised.

Yeah I used this too and it looked great when it was done, but has since gotten fogged over again. I wonder whether the original plastic had some kind of UV overcoat.

IMHO nothing works unless it has some kind of abrasive. I had tried every chemical miracle treatment but nothing worked like good ol' fashion sandpaper then something like the 3M solution mentioned above, then a chemical of your choice. You wet sand (2000 grit?) and know it's working when the water turns milky white. Not 100% sure on the details of the grit for the sandpaper as it's been a long time, but I restored mine to looking like new.

Looks like just $8.85 AR (w/ subscription)

It's really stupid that cars still come with lens that fog. My 03 Highlander fogs badly. But the 96 Accord I had fogged very little even after seven years when I sold it, and a relative's 13 year old RAV 4 still looks like new.

I wet sanded 1000grt, 1500grt, finished it with 2000grt and sprayed some clear coat on them. Year later and still look nice!
