I have used the Meguiar's head light restoration kit before with good luck. Toothpaste really doesn't do much. Tried it as well. Once I found I could just buy new headlights for less than 50.00 a pair. I didn't waste my time with trying to clean faded ones again. Even though they come out nice when cleaned. they are still not super clear and dull again pretty quick. I have replaced the headlights on 3 cars now. None for more than 55.00 for a pair and they also come with new bulbs. If you need to save more, cleaning will do. But dollar for dollar and time wise. I would just buy new for as chap as they are. Just my 02 here

What models were you purchasing for? Contour\Mystique (98+) lights will run $100+ per side easy, I spent somewhere around $180 for a new set for our Windstar (cheapest I could find and not OEM). Just curious because normally light assemblies are not that inexpensive

I just bought a pair for my 94 mustang 55.00 shipped about 2 weeks ago, before that was my 90 dodge spirit 45 shipped, before that was on a 89 nissan sentra. I forget exactly what they were. been a few years. But they were under 50.00 Looks like almost every mini van are crazy priced. Almost every other 98 up car I did a search on are in the 50.00 to 75.00 a pair range. A little more than early cars you are right. :D

I've used toothpaste allowed it to set then ran back over it with rubbing alcohol. Had to redo it a few times but worked very well.
