3M Headlight Restoration Kit to Restore Dull/ Faded/ Discoloured Headlights
3M Headlight Restoration Kit to Restore Dull/ Faded/ Discoloured Headlights
Price: £19.47

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely good value, outstanding results., 21 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One can of course get a bit concerned about sanding your way to clearer lenses, but the principle is very well known and works very well. The 3M name for quality is upheld with this product, yielding what I'd estimate to be a 98% clear lens, or as near to new as you can expect, after polishing.

The technique is very well explained, and needs nothing other than a moderate speed on the drill, and light to moderate pressure on the sanding disks and pads. On a 12-year old car with quite badly dulled lenses, I only needed to use one sanding disk of each of the two grits per lens, with only a couple of passes to get an outstanding result.

When you see those 'before and after' photos, you will be getting exactly that result. You go from poor, yellowish light to powerful, whiter headlights. You can use the same sandpaper ratings and some metal polish, but for a car, the £23 means you can be sure of the result you want, without hunting for all the right bits. There's enough material in the package for another polish from the start, should you have use for it.

Works, then loses all contact with the network, which cannot be overcome. This is commonly reported by many users.

2.0 out of 5 stars weather-tightness and battery life are excellent. BUT, 19 Nov. 2014

The camera, photos, sensitivity, weather-tightness and battery life are excellent.

BUT! The unit is let down by very weak, plastic-moulded hinges. These do break down rapidly outdoors, leaving you with a pretty short-lived unit. The specific hinge problems are with the battery compartments and base compartment hinge.

If the designers replace these with strong, metal-based hinges, that would give the unit a 5 star. As-is, I can't really recommend spending this much.

5.0 out of 5 stars but which manages to keep the side of the poor 'guinea pigs', 12 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A balanced approach to Porton Down, but which manages to keep the side of the poor 'guinea pigs', who endured decades of dismissal by the authorities. Yes, a different age with pressing needs, but perhaps not that different that any of this was morally acceptable.
