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.

Not satisfied with the product

The 3 pads were not large enough for a Monte Carlo headlight as they wore out before I got through a single headlight. Finishing products did not leave a clear finish.

      Comments about Rain X Headlight Restoration Kit:

      I just bought a 2004 Camry with 65,000 miles on it. There are a few small dings and a scratch here or there but the headlights were the biggest eyesore. They did not develop a yellow haze but a grayish white haze only visible on the top portion of each headlight. I followed the instructions and was amazed with the results. After using the sealant and taking a step back I realized that I must not have worked as hard on the passenger side headlight because there was still a small faded line so I redid all of the steps making sure I focused on the area that needed it and after I applied the sealant both headlights were as good as new. If you have extreme discoloration or deeper scratches and know what you are doing you probably want a product that uses a drill with a sandpaper attachment but for just normal hazing I would highly recommend this.

      I did my 07 vw beetle husband done his 92 chevy both head lights and taillights. .both very pleased
      I wasn't sure if it was even going to work, but I did my car as my husband did his and both were equally as easy just followed instructions and you should get same great results..Can't wait to see the difference at night
      And we have plenty enough to do again if required. ..that's to be determined.
      Overall good product at great price easy application and minimal clean up, provided plenty of material

                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

                            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.
