Dude I just read your post about the headlights deteriorating. Mine are the same, they havn't gone discoloured but they have just gone really clouded on the outside. I've sat and buffed them for hours with T-Cut, T-cut Chrome polish, Brasso .. all sorts. I think I've improved them slightly but still really bad. If you find a product that's strong enough let me know please!

Mate I've tried all sorts like you but nothing worked :(
my plans are to get the finest sand paper i can find and wet sand them down and then polish them up using a drill, polishing mop and some meguiars plastx, if that doesnt work then i need new light <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
i tried wet sanding my left light but i used sandpaper that was too rough which made it even worse
also Chris was telling me about how it could be all on the inside but it doesn't look like it?
anyway il keep you posted mate if i find a way that fixes them up :)

OO yeahh sand paper sounds scary to be honest. I was thinking that a drill with a buffing pad attachment might be the solution with the right product.

And yes I was thinking it might be on the inside but it looks and feels just like its on the outside :\\ .. I have managed to improve mine a little bit but the hours of work that it took is just ridiculous.. I think next course of action is a drill attachment.

it truly does take the piss mate the headlights, some guys off the corolla forum got pissed and changed the lights all together lol
the thing is they aint ever going to be like new or shiny every again, you can improve them but that's about it...nothing more :(
