    Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 175reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Never New Product Existed I did not know that a product like this existed. My cousin told me about it & I went online exploring. I found this product. This product is fantastic! It is simple as long as you read the instructions & take your time. My only suggestions are: Make sure you tape your car as shown; read the instuctions carefully ahead of time; take your time you will have enough to do more then one vehicle; also take a before & after picture. I bought this online for $15! Walmart has this cool thing that some items in the stores can be purchased for the online price & picked up in the store the same day. This was one of the items. I saved about $3. This product is definitely worth it no matter which amount you pay. The last thing I would like to mention is do not get scared when you first use this product & the lens becomes cloudy. It's supposed do that...it will eventually become VERY clear after you finish the process. 07/21/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Fantastic product. Easy to use & quick. The headlight restoration kit comes with 500, 1000, and 2000 grit sanding pads, along with a polishing pad (and compound). It totally fixed the hazed headlights on two of my cars, although you'll have to buy another bottle of plastic polish to do more than one car. The sanding pads and polish applicator are durable enough to be used on a number of vehicles. It's a great product that absolutely works as advertised, restoring the headlights to 98% as clear as new.TIPYou will only need the 500 grit pad on the worst-case, most yellowed, hazed, and opaque headlights. For more moderately hazed headlights, start with the 1000 grit pad, and keep WET sanding until you don't see any traces of the hazing. Move on to the next phase of sanding when the headlight is uniformly cloudy from the sanding process. Wash in between each step. 06/04/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Fantastic I bought one kit and after reading that you may need two for larger headlights I bought a second kit before starting the repair. It turned out one kit would have been sufficient. I was worried about the need for a 1200 to 1600 rpm drill as all I had was a variable speed drill. I used a pretty low speed because I was worried about damaging the plastic. Then I used a dime sized amount of the polish on each headlight as per the instructions. I did that twice on each headlight and they looked good, but not quite as good as I expected. I still had the complete second kit so I decided to use it on my mothers van as her headlights were worse than mine. I sped up the rpms with the sandpaper and when it came to the polish, I used half the packet on each headlight and they came out looking brand new. Just amazing how great they looked. My headlights needed a bit more sanding and definately more polish, but I didn't want to buy a third kit, so I started looking around. I had plenty of the sandpaper left, so I used that and bought Meguiars PlastX for the polishing and they now look brand new. Some people say 3M should give you more of the polish than they do, but the problem, I think, is the dime size they tell you to use in the instructions. Just put about half the packet on each headlight and don't be afraid to crank up the drill...at least when using the polish and your headlights should come out sparkling new. If you need more of the polish, just get some of the Mequiars PlastX. Had I thought about this review I'd have taken before and after photos. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. Just make sure you get some good automotive painters tape to protect the body of your vehicle from the drill. 07/24/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great product Great results - I highly recommend this product. I took me about an hour all together on a 10 year old headlight. It was very faded. I paid $59 at one of those oil change places and the results were half-baked and faded within a year. I followed the directions and kept sanding. It was not until the purple pad and the rubbing compound that the headlight popped out as perfectly clear again. I used the whole kit on one headlight, but mine was pretty badly faded.$15 at Walmart - don't waste your money on "as seen on TV" nonsense. You have to work a bit on this one, but the science makes sense and the results are great. 07/02/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by AWESOME! I bought this product after reading the previous review. I too was very skeptical but faced with $160.00 to purchase new lights, I decided i'd give it a try. It exceeded my expectations, the lights honestly look brand new! Highly recommend! 06/21/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Well Worth The Money I was really Impressed with this product. I was kinda worried about the sanding and such but when you hook it up to your drill and just make passes with that it makes it verry easy. The instructions were verry accurate so I would recommend to just read them through every step before you do it. The longer you take on them the Better they will look. 06/22/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Works As Advertised I'm satisfied with the results on my '97 Buick Regal. Although one of the other reviewers is right: it's a function of how much effort that's put into it. I still have some haze left after going through the process once. However, 3M does caveat their instructions with a repeat-as-necesary note if there's still haze left. (See photos below.) I took my time, cleaning lenses and sanding pads frequently as recommended in other reviews. Also, double-taped the body well. I knew after completing the P800 step that I didn't get all the hazing, but by then I just wanted to complete the sanding steps. I agree with another reviewer that another P3000 pad would've been nice. It seems that the single one I had clogged up, despite frequent water sprayings. For sedan lights, the sanding does take a toll on your back after the P800 step - another reason to take frequent breaks. The P500 does skip around at certain pressures, as another reviewer warned. Maybe this fall I'll get another kit to see if I can get the rest of the hazing. I did purchase this using "pickup today" for the cheaper on-line price. Bottom line: the Buick's lights seem brighter and my efforts (not the kit's quality) were 80% effective. I recommend watching 3Mcarecare.com's video at least once (3 times for me). Their directions are good and easy to follow. One caution: when taping (I used 3M's Scotch blue painter's tape) be careful when taking it off at the end: I taped over a chipped area and removed more of the paint when I peeled off the tape. My thanks to other reviewers' warnings and suggestions! - August 6, 2011, Lenexa, KS. 08/08/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by A fantastic product! I used this product on a 2000 Chevy Prizm and the headlights look brand new. I have nothing new to add that the previous reviews on this product haven't mentioned. I do recommend if you plan on using this product on your car I have two pieces of advice:(1) Wear a protective mask! The sanding process will generate a lot of fine particulates that will float in the air. You probably don't want to breathe this stuff in.(2) Be very generous with the recommended body masking tape. I had put a double layer of tape immediately on the body around the headlight assembly, but just used a single width. I should have doubled the width. At one point I let the drill get away from me during sanding and I accidentally messed up some of the paint on the top of the bumper. Since my car is 13 years old it isn't anything I am going to stress out about, but do put on two layers AND double the width around the edges of the headlight assembly. 07/08/2012
