The headlight lens on my car were so badly yellowed light could hardly shine through.
I followed the directions on the kit and within one hour the lens looked better than new.
It was unbelievable! I was truly amazed.
The headlights on my 2004 Cavalier were extremely yellow and gross, and I've tried sanding them and polishing them a couple times before in the past with no success. I got a gift card for Wal-Mart and didn't really need anything, so I decided to pick this up and give it a try since it came with a drill attachment for buffing.
I followed the directions for each headlight, and man, my headlights are crystal clear. I never would've thought it'd make them this clear, but I was wrong. This kit is definitely worth the $21 spent and you'll probably get four, maybe five uses out of it. My headlights were so yellow and rough that I figured sanding them anymore would only make them worse, but they look brand new. I'll be trying it on my roommate's Tiburon tomorrow as well.
This product requires a little bit of effort, but the results are amazing. The process is completed in 4 steps, and our Land Rover required all 4. Heavy sanding, light sanding, polishing, and a protectant. Our Toyota's lights were not as bad and I was able to skip the heavy sanding.
I purchased the Meguiar's Heavy Duty kit after having less than perfect results 2 years ago with another product. I followed the directions and it delivered. The badly yellowed & oxidized lenses looked "brand new" when finished. Not just better or much better... BRAND NEW. The clarity was just as it was on the car when new. I was so impressed after doing my wife's car that I also used the kit on my own car, so it was an economical purchase as well in that 2 cars were completed with the same kit. Outstanding product and results.
I was very skeptical that these type products really worked. I was wrong. This kit exceeded my expectations. The headlights on my 8 year old truck look brand new again. It took less than 1 hour start to finish to restore them from dull and yellow to shiny and crystal clear. This kit really does work!!!!!!!!
I like you am very skeptical when it comes to these sort of wonder work alls! Well guess what, it does WORK! You can see if you watch my video how bad my lenses were and then how clear they are at the end. Mind blowing. If your headlights are yellow, spend the money and get this stuff and fix it. I didnt have a drill and did the sanding by hand which was super easy and it worked. Note: be sure to reapply the plastic x and headlight restorer about once a month to keep the clear look because the lights will slowly begin to yellow again otherwise. You will not have to resand though!!!! Hope my review helps!
I have a 2001 Dodge Neon. Over the last few years, I've become painfully aware how cloudy the headlights have gotten. Yellow, gross and hard for the light to shine through. I took a chance and bought this kit yesterday, hoping to improve the appearance of my car. Best twenty bucks I've ever spent!! It took less than 20 minutes to do both headlights and both are almost as clear as new! I'm so excited. Great product!
I must say I was really impressed by how good this worked. Most of the time taken to do this job was taping off the headlights. The rest was an easy 4 step process that got my headlights looking like new again with minimal work.
This kit restored my Lexus ES300 headlights and fog lights to almost brand new condition. It only took about 1 & 1/2 hours to clean my headlights and fog lights. They weren't terribly yellow, but they were faded pretty bad. This really got the job done! All you need is a household drill for this kit and your good to go! I can still see a really tiny bit of yellow in my headlights, but that's because i was gentle with my sanding because i was worried it wouldn't work. This product is great, just MAKE SURE you follow the directions.
I bought this after previously trying to restore my headlights with another product. I'm not sure what kind of plastic polish is in this kit but it is amazing! I can't explain how great he difference is from before. If you put the work in with this kit it definitely is worth every penny. my headlights look mint!
Package comes with two reusable wet sanding pads that I used but the real improvement appeared to come from use of the buffing wheel mounted on my drill. A small amount of a PlastX liquid is applied to the wheel that did bring back most of the clarity I was looking for. Have previously used a Turtle Wax kit that lacked the buffing wheel and did not work well. Have also tried toothpaste and a rag with marginal improvement. I believe the improvement is the result of the buffing wheel and buffing agent they call PlastX. The kit has enough PlastX to do several cars however, if you have a buffing wheel and some sort of buffing agent for plastic I suspect you could obtain a similar result.
Def buy this
I got this product and used it on my truck, what a difference it made I can now see my headlights at night when I drive. I've used this on two other cars now and have some left for at least two more cars. You may have to sand it a couple of times for it to get totally clean so take you're time on it.
I was hoping this kit would perform as well as all the other Meguiar's products I've used and I was not disappointed. Man does this stuff REALLY work. Follow the instructions closely and the results will amaze you, it sure did me! The lenses on my daughter's Honda Civic were so bad, to the point that I could only hope for modest results at best. Well, Meguiar's didn't let me down! The lenses on the car are now actually better than new and with the application of the protector sealant I have every confidence that they'll stay that way. Thank you Meguiar's and Wal-Mart, great product, great price, totally satisfied customer!!
Have tried all and everything to clear up headlights to the point of damaging one of them. Nothing had worked until I used this product. Not only did it clear up it also seemed to repair or at least hide the damage. Was told everything that was done to clean them damaged them so bad they needed replacing. Now I have clear lights and so far has stayed that way for a month. Time will tell how long it will last but will be using this product again to clear. Already did another vehicle for family with same kit and can possibly get another use or two out of it.
Product worked as advertised!! The only thing that I did different was I did the sanding twice. Took the truck on a road trip to the mountains of Northern California… We were able to see very good at night on those dark mountain roads. Felt very safe!! WOULD BUY AGAIN!!!
This restroration headlight is outstanding . I tried other products but none came close to doing the job as this one. I strongly recommend Meguiar' s heavy duty restoration kit.
overall this did make my lights better, but i wish it had included a 3rd grade of sandpaper. one that was a little more course than the two provided.
Not impressed at all!
This kit requires hand-sanding and I got hand cramps from using it before getting a single lens sanded sufficiently. The Meguiar's buffing pad throws excess fluffy fibers in the air while not focusing enough on the lens.
(I see from other videos that Mercedes-Benz has a clear coat on the lens, so I'll try the 3M kits that have a drill mountable disc pad holder and shows restoring even Mercedes-Benz lens with dry and wet sanding with drill mounted discs. The 3M kit also has a buffing pad that mounts on the same drill mountable disc pad holder.)
Meguiar's DID refund my purchase price without even sending the kit to them. I like other Meguiar's products, but certainly NOT their headlight restoration kits.
I was skeptical; I am no longer. This stuff works. Used on a 7.5 year old VW Jetta that has spent more than half it's life outdoors in all kinds of weather. Just follow the directions and you will be amazed. Did this in my garage in 47 degree weather. Both headlights had ugly, foggy spots on the lenses that were blocking some of the light. Lenses look clear as new from 5 feet away. Up close, depending on the light, you may see some remnants of minor pitting, but definitely no foggy spots. Great for detailing a car you plan on selling/trading.
