Thanks for all the advice. Have tried the toothpaste trick with limited success but I think the secret is what you put on the the glass after treatment. Will try the wax .

Try the meguires headlight cleaning kit it comes with wet and dry and a mop head . It brought my headlights up a treat contains instructions highly recommend it

 

I concur, worked a treat, then used a good quality silicon polish to seal them

Hi Rodger,  if the exterior of the lens is the problem then Halfords do a restoration kit by Meguiar which is very good. It is not cheap at £21.99 but it comes with a special buffing pad which fits any drill, also a stobborn defect kt for areas that are very badly marked. I used it on my 1999 S Type and with a bit of elbow grease and about 10 - 15 mins per lamp the results were great.

 I bought the Meguiars headlight cream and a buffing wheel from halfords....attach the wheel to a drill and go to work....took about an hour to get them all looking good again..although i'm having another go this weekend to get them perfect....works well and cheaper than buying the 'kit'.....
