I love this product, it works awesome! there was such a huge difference in my headlights and I had just installed new bulbs in my Mazda 3 so I wanted to be able to show them off properly. I was debating whether or not to buy new headlights all together but I will most definitely keep the originals and put some work into these. My next project is angel eyes! 8-)

The Rain X kit is definitely worth the money, I had tried the turtle wax one on my previous vehicle with no where near as much success.

The only bad thing I have read about this product is it takes a bit of elbow grease, yes it does, but if youre in shape it shouldnt be a problem.

instructions don't specify if you are to use lubricant with each pad. I got tired after 2 hours of rubbing with no visual results. I used a non-abrasive car wax w 1000 grit sand paper , got better results in 10 minutes than 2 hours with this product. headlighs are not perfect, may take another time with car wax and sand paper, but are much better than they were

    My car is ten years old and the front lights were a mess. I was considering purchasing new lights but now i Dont need to. Just follow the directions. Use extra lubricant with each sanding pad if need. If your lights are in bad shape as mine were work the lubricant in a few minutes more that recommended it won't harm the lenses. I worked on each light about 15 minutes.

              Cleaned up 14 year old headlights well, they were in poor shape and needed a significant improvement to pass inspection

              Be prepared to put effort and time in each process if your head lights are old and really poor shape

              Wish it came with a drill attachment for polishing to make it easier on your arms

              Look at many reviews on more expensive products and glad I decided to go with this

              Did our 2005 mini van headlights too which were not too bad but in 15 minutes they looked like me again

                Comments about Rain X Headlight Restoration Kit:

                Used on my 01 Taurus with bad oxidation on the headlights. It does require you to use some elbow grease and takes roughly 30 minutes on each cluster, but the end results are excellent. Includes three different sandpaper pads and three different cleaning products so be sure to go slow and follow the included directions. I also recommend wearing rubber gloves when using as the oxidation starts to come off like mud as you use this product. Overall, a great product, powerful cleaning, and worth the price when you consider the cost of buying new headlight clusters vs. cleaning the ones you already have. My headlights are now clean and bright.

                    Fantastic stuff. I thought my headlights were gonna be yellow forever, but this stuff ACTUALLY worked. However, I did every step at least twice. Being said, I probably spent about 20-25 minutes on each headlight. But I figure if I did it right once, I wouldn't have to come back. Also, I have plenty of spray left to do it another couple times. The only thing you'd need for the second job is some new sandpaper.

                          I had my doubts about buying this product, but it was surprisingly great! It was very easy to use and produced great results. The kit basically consists of three different grades of sanding pads, lubricant, polishing compound, and a final shine/protectant. You can do the same with polishing compound and 1000-1500 grit sandpaper, but this kit makes it easier. I have done three headlights and two taillights so far. All look great and there is plenty of product left to do many more. It took me about 10 min per light.

                              Read and follow instructions carefully. Removed haze from headlights on 1998 Ford F-150 in about 40 minutes. I have not used any other headlight cleaning product before but Rain-X products always work as advertised. There was plenty of the product to also clean up minor haze on headlights of a 2006 Chevrolet Equinox.
