2003: Best headlight restore kit

Hi everyone.
1st post.

I recently purchased an 03' MDX w/ 190k miles.
Headlights need a restore for sure.

Can anyone give me suggestions on the best kit to purchase?
All I want is to get the best crystal clear finish so I can increase my visibility with halogen not HID.

I did a google and youtube search and got many differant reviews on which is the best. Most said Sylvania makes the best, others said 3M?

My friend recently did my wifes 03' Avalon with a 3M kit where he used a drill. Looks great. But not super crystal clear. And you can see scratch lines in the plastic.

is there a kit out there that will give me a better end result. Or a way to decrease the fine scratches?


**I'll post more info on my vehicle and some picture hopefully this weekend.

Cheers in advance

* I don't mind putting in extra time and process' to get a more crystal clear scratch free finish.

Hi @MDX90300zx and welcome to the forum!

We've been selling a lot of headlight restoration kits for years, and I must admit, that customers, who order Sylvania, get back with positive feedbacks more often.
As additional recommendation for headlights restoration process, I recommend installing headlight protecting film on top of the plastic lenses when the restoration is over and the UV protective layer is dry.
WeatherTech LampGard clear headlight and fog light protection kit at CARiD
This will prolong the lifespan of the restored lenses and protect the headlights from further scratches and deterioration.

Hope this helps!

The haze just comes back, I would recommend not wasting time or money on a restoration kit and just purchase new housings when the time comes.
