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

      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.

                I followed the instructions on the box doing each step twice before moving to the next. My headlights look brand new! Of course it requires some elbow grease, but not an enormous amount. Took less than hour to do both headlights. Very happy with product!

                the product performs well, but it requires patience and lots of polishing and using the step by step process. Time will tell if the results last or if I will need to uses as continuing maintainence.

                    I was looking for something for our 2001 Toyota RAV4. It didn't do a bad job there was still some crazing on the lens but that may have been on the inside of the lens. I did the worst side first and forgot to take a picture so I could look back. The other side wasn't as bad and after using it on the bad side I wanted to see what the sealant alone would do. I was surprised at the improvement with just the sealer. The sealer alone does wonders for a quick fix.
