Headlight Lens covers

Have headlight lens covers changed at all recently, or will our lens eventually get all mucked up and need restored like older vehicles? Is there anything you can do to keep up on them?

Give a man fire, he'll be warm for a night. Light a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

An apple a day, thrown hard enough, will keep anyone away.

They will eventually become hazy and yellowish. 3m makes a kit to restore them and it works great. There are cheaper kits out there as well at harbror frieght.

Meguiar's also makes a restoration kit, my brother uses it on his 350z headlights to maintain them and it works great.

Yeah, I was aware of the kits, and their propensity to work but I was hoping they had started using different plastics or something that won't go bad. Guess I'll just keep washing them.

On another note, those kits are pricey. Has anyone figured out what the individual pieces of the kit are, and if its cheaper to purchase them individually?
