I used Meguiars Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish (PlastX) from Schucks on my headlights, $7.49 for a 10 oz bottle. Worked great for me. This is the description.

"This easy-to-use, rich gel formula quickly restores optical clarity to both rigid and flexible clear plastics. Cutting-edge advancements in Meguiar’s exclusive Microscopic Diminishing Abrasive Technology (MDAT) remove light oxidation, chemical degradation, surface contamination, stains and light surface scratches with ease. Special highly water resistant polymers provide long lasting durable protection to keep your clear plastics clear and beautiful longer. Meguiars recommends applying PlastX with a High Tech Applicator Pad or Ultra Plush Super Terry and using an Ultra Plush Super Terry or Supreme Shine Microfiber for the final wipe-off."

I also had good results from the PlastX, but for $6 the eBay stuff is worth a shot. As long as it doesn't destroy the headlights you won't really be out anything if it doesn't work.

Price was cheap and the item also, so it's ok.
fast shipment, but product was not a custom fit, nor did it serve its purpose
Repackaged commercial product and charged more

Well got it, used it like 10 minutes ago. It helped, but not nearly as clear as I would like. So PlastX here we come. Part of it is also all the moisture in my headlamps. Im probably gonna remove them today and polish the inside if I dont have to break any Glue to get into it. If the plastx doesnt do It My buddy said he bought a headlight buffer, Im guessing its Mothers cause he got it at wally world, so if all else fails Im calling Paco.

Bummer. I was hoping for a better report. I ordered some for my g/f's 98 Stratus ES, cuz her lights are like milk, with a hint of urine . I'll do a before and after shot of it, in case anyone is interested.

I also saw some stuff at WalMart, in a mylar bag for 20 bucks. Probably the same thing, if it's a one step process.

Then there is this guy..

Anyone used his stuff?

Tell you what, my aunts Econoline van had this problem with the yellow headlights. A little plastix and some elbow grease and they were almost twice as clear as they were.

Yeah, I kind of figured it would be something like that. I'll try this stuff, since I already bought it, but explore other possibilities if need be.

Oh yeah it does help dont get me wrong, Mine just have alot of inside haze and it left the really really thick stuff still on there. I just got back from autozone with some Plast x so we'll see if itll work for my very far gone headlights.

Go to a Harley Davidson bike dealer. They sell swirl scratch treatment. It's like $4.95 a bottle. It works very well.

I am NOT a fan of GM but I have to say this: my mom has a 1998 Olds 88 and whatever they make the headlight lenses out of on that car, at the age of eight years the lenses are crystal clear and shiny. I had to buy new ones for my 96 Intrepid to get them clear. (Actually I replaced one where the housing had broken the mounting ears, and after putting the first one on the other one was so noticeably blech I ordered another for the other side.
