hey sory if this has allready been brought up but i cant find it.

My EF has yellow headlights and ive heard that rather than buying new ones you can wet n dry and use other polishes to remove the yellow and polish back to a glassy finish. does anyone know how to do this?

My headlights where a little cloudy and a bit yellow so i followed the sanding instructions and polished them up.I thought they looked good until i spent the cash and bought new ones,and there is a massive difference.So if u want the clean look just buy new ones $125 off ebay.

My two cents

But the ones on eBay aren't originals are they?? Aren't they like some cheap quality plastic ones? That's what i heard anyway...

Just make sure you put decent globes back in and that they are Hard Cut glass otherwise it will just happen again. Use Phillips Globes, they are the best.
