Cleaning headlight lenses is something that is alien to those of us unaccustomed to modern plastic lenses but needs to become a yearly habit if we wish to see the road clearly at night. Nice new bulbs and clean headlight lenses makes driving a lot safer!!
So, these bulbs have been installed and look great. They will be thoroughly tested by me during the next few weeks and I will post a review about them and some before and after pictures. I kept the receipt and will return them if not entirely happy.

I use a regular electric buffer. It has the speed and power necessary to get the buffing compound to work the way it was intended. In fact, there is no need for the special kits....... go to your local automotive paint store. Get a few sheets of fine grit sandpaper. Sand them down starting anywhere from 1000 or 1500 grit and advance up through 3000 grit if possible. Then hit them with a good buffing and then polishing compound and you should be good to go.
In extreme cases, I have been forced to sand them down and reshoot a coating of urethane clear on them.
