The headlights on my 1998 Passat wagon were heavily clouded and not providing enough light, so I tried this kit. It is easy to use and it works!
The instructions for each step that come in the box are clear. There are amplified ones online, but I didn't look at them. It took me about an hour to assemble the necessary stuff (bowl of water, Windex, cotton towel, and electric drill), do the job, and clean up. My 14-year-old headlight lenses now look like new.
I should have used this years ago.

Woked but not as well as I had hoped. I have four headlights on my car that need attention. I cleaned and scrubbed and scrubbed again, took about 2-3 hours. I still have a visable film that I can feel on the head light. It did remove the yellowing that I had though. I am going to try it again and see if another application makes it any better.

    Comments about Meguiar's 2-Step Headlight Restoration Kit Sanding and Polishing System:

    My headlights were in fairly poor shape. The top edge was very hazy. The middle parts were a little cloudy but not terrible. After 45 minutes of hand sanding with the little pads, and using the compound, my light still looked awful.

    I took it back and exchanged it for the 3M kit which worked 100% better.

          Worked great and very easy to use. I couldn't see the headlight bulbs behind the headlamp plastic casing before I used this product because they were so oxidized. They looked almost like new when i was done with the process.

              Restored some really nasty headlights to, like new condition. I like the hand held sanding pads opposed to sanding pads thats attach to a drill. I did feel like it should have included one more of each pad. Works great. The extra you pay for Meguiars is worth it.

              Comments about Meguiar's 2-Step Headlight Restoration Kit Sanding and Polishing System:

              I was kind of skeptical about a headlight restore kit at first because most do NOT work. However, after I spent the $20 ($10 off coupon) and invested about an hour into the project I was INCREDIBLY happy with with the final results.

              I would have rated my headlights at a 6 and 7 out of 10 for oxidation and haze. And with one session all the gunk was gone. I do however need to go back over my work because I missed a few spots - user error with low light.

              I would recommend this product to ANYONE. In fact, there was product left over and my buddy used the remainder to refinish his two lights.. He was amazed!

                  Comments about Meguiar's 2-Step Headlight Restoration Kit Sanding and Polishing System:

                  Spring/Summer 2013 I decided to try my luck buying a competing (name brand) headlight restoration kit to clear up the yellow fog that had accumulated on my decade old integra. At the time, the brand I chose had better reviews and cost less. I got home and put LOTS of elbow grease and plenty of time sanding through the multiple grits of sand paper, only to be mildly impressed with the results. Drivers side was...acceptable, while my passenger lights still stood out like a sore thumb. So now it's a new year and after driving around all fall/winter with that embarressing front end, I rolled the dice and changed brands. I didn't have lots of expectation for it but man was I wrong. This kit used only 2 grits of paper (1000 and 3000) which might sound worse but I guarentee it worked twice as well with half the effort. Each side took me about 30 minutes which I'm sure was twice what was needed. I would recommend a corded (high power)drill for the polishing cloth and don't forget to use painters tape to mask off around the edges. Excellent product, don't waste your money on a lesser kit. As far as headlight restoration kits go, this is the one! I will keep this updated if for some reason they fade. A protectant was included and this is a brand I've used before and trust so I don't think it will be an issue.

                  Comments about Meguiar's 2-Step Headlight Restoration Kit Sanding and Polishing System:

                  I was skeptical this would really work, my headlights aren't horribly bad as you can see from my before picture but they were getting worse. It took me 20min to do both headlights and the results were shocking. You can see in my after picture how it's now much easier see into the headlight, past the lense that was previously hazy and is now clear. If you follow the instructions you'll be fine; my Keys to Success were 1) get some blue tape and mask the body, this comes in more handy when you're using the buffer with the drill; 2) dip the hand sander in water after each pass (I did 10 passes per light per sanding pad, 20 passes total, light pressure); 3) No pressure on the polish pad, just use the weight of it (I did 3 passes per light reapplying the PlastX each time and wiping the headlight clean after each pass). Also, when you polish you should use a 'cross hatch' pattern if you're familiar with that…up & down moving across the surface then back & forth coming back, overlapping each time; after you done that pass wipe it clean then reapply PlastX and go again. I assume heavier hazed lights will require more passes but for the price, this is an amazing kit.
