I actually wax my headlights to prevent this type of thing from happening. I use mequires liquid wax, it lasts quite a bit and has uv protection, it also helps keep salt etc from winter roads from actually working away at the plastics.

WiscoGTI,
Yes the 3M kit may polish and make it look good but that kit is missing a very important piece and that is UV protection. If you sand and polish your factory lens you must apply UV coating back on the bare lens. If you do not apply this product your lens will fade and discolor even quicker. There are a few kits out there with full UV protection. I have personal experience with developing a kit that has this UV protection and in my opinion the only way to go.
