Just a word of warning: Grab yourself a low stool or chair to sit down in front of your headlights at a comfortable level and 2 or 3 servings of the cold drink of your choice and Be prepared to spend the most boring hour of your life rubbing this thing until your forearms go numb. Yes, this thing works but it's 50% elbow grease powered. But for 10 bucks and with the included pads, you can't go wrong. Oh, and you'll only spend about 1/4 of the contents on the job (2 headlights). So I'd say this kit lasts enough to restore the headlights in 4 vehicles. 1 more thing: Make sure to have a little bit of car wax at hand before starting the job. You'll need it at the end to seal the finish and it's not included in the kit. (I noticed this just when I was ready to begin and I had to drop everything and make a run to store for some wax) All in all, just for the bang for your buck and the effectiveness of the product, 5 stars.
Quick rundown on the differences:
3M Headlight Lens Restoration System
* $12 after rebate
* drill attachment
* dry sanding method
* comes with a small bag of polish compound
* lens protectant sold separately
Turtle Wax T-240KT Headlight Lens Restorer Kit
* $8 no rebate
* no drill attachment
* wet sanding method
* comes with a bottle of polish compound
* lens protectant included
Being a cheaper kit, I had my doubts because of the hand sanding method, but result turns out better than the 3M kit. It's mainly due to the included sealant though. This thing seals off any remaining scratch and dry off to protect the lens from further damage, a very nice touch by Turtle Wax. 3M sold the sealant separately so if you plan on using the 3M kit, careful because the result may not be permanent. Go with Turtle Wax if you are willing to spend extra times using hand (less risky than using drill if you ask me), the result is simply amazing and it cost less.
I was expecting to have to work very hard to restore one of the headlights on my 13 year old Z3. When I bought the car, one headlight looked almost new because it had been replaced a few years ago, but the other was very clouded and didn't put out much light.
Per the instructions I tried the compound on the lens first. If that fails you're supposed to use the sanding pads and lubricant. It took about 10 minutes of rubbing but the compound alone was enough to completely clear the lens. It worked so well I had to polish the other lens to make them match. I never even had to use the sanding pads.
It's been 2 months since doing the repair and both headlights still look almost new. Definitely time and money well spent.
1. Take it easy with that level 1 sanding pad. It's a pretty heavy grit sandpaper and if you rub really hard, you can put some pretty deep scratches in the plastic.
2. KEEP the pads wet the entire time! Never let the surface dry.
Even after using this kit twice on one headlight, you can still see scratches on the lens. I believe this was from pushing too hard on that first pad and not keeping the lens wet. Don't make the same mistake.
3. Also, you'll likely need to use each pad longer than the instructions say. 1 minute for the finer grit pads was nowhere close to what was needed to get the lens clear.
4. Finally, if the lens still looks foggy after all the sanding and polishing, the final step will take care of that. The sealant is crucial to getting the final product, so don't worry as you near the final step. Also, you might wanna wait a few days before washing your car. I washed my car 24 hours after restoring the lens and the sealant came right off leaving the lens foggy and scratched. I had to go to WalMart to buy a bottle of lens sealer and it looks crystal clear again. I just hope it doesn't wash off later.

I should also mention that the kit says to do only the first two steps before moving on. That worked pretty good for me and I could have stopped there. However, I went ahead and did the next steps and it got quite a bit better.

Worked exactly as described. I like that is has a sealer for the lights. This is so much better that cleaning them and leaving them unsealed to get cloudy again.Published 7 days ago by catgirl
