Is there anything that will restore my discoloured headlights?

My 2002 Ford Focus the front plastic headlight covers have faded and discoloured. Is there any thing I can clean them with?

3M, Turtle Wax and T-Cut (among others) all make headlight restoration kits, which can help restore cloudy headlights. The amount of effort you need to put in depends on how far gone they are, but any one of those kits should do the job.

Good to drive. Roomy cabin well thought through. Massive choice of used Focus at sensible prices. Better car than a similar aged Volkswagen Golf.
