Anyone have a quick fix to make my headlight lenses nice again on my dc5? Mine are going brown!
A mate suggested toothpaste however is there a easy application product I can buy?

You need to sand them down, possibly using one of these type kits which attached a pad to your drill. Search the internet for more info. I have tried it before and it worked out ok but it's never going to look brand new.

Ok that’s fine. How long do applications like this last for 6 months or so before they get haze again?
Cheers

It will definitely look better for more than six months as a cheap quick fix. I would say however, new headlights are worth every penny, they really freshen up the car and make it look new again.

+1 for new headlights. i got a set a few months ago in prep for a full respray hopefully next year. I've refurbed my headlights a few times, both myself with kits and once professionally. results are always pleasing but do fade over time. it wasnt until i saw brand new lights that i realised that refurb's would only ever get about 90% there
