Headlight GLITZ AND FLITZ recommendations

I just got new clear corner lights and wanted to see if there are any recommended products for cleaning my headlights lens and holders. I searched around for a bit but couldnt find anything concrete. Some people mentioned FLITZ....is that any good? And please dont tell me to upgrade to euros...if I had the $$ right now I would have.... SO any recommendations? I want to clean up and glitz my headlights lens and fog lens to be a little more bright and sparkly like new...

see picture...

I haven't tried but I have head of people using toothpaste since it's an abrasive.

On the Acura legend forum, they have a DIY using sandpaper.

I haven't tried any of these methods. I don't know how the headlights of a Legend compare to that a Mercedes either.

I don't have plastic covers on the SL, but I do on the BMW and I use the clear plastic window cleaner on the clear plastic lens, the same that I use for the rear soft top window, it really cleans it well! From MB and you can even use it to clean your instrument cluster lens. Good luck!

They shouldn't be dirty inside, unless you are getting moisture in there. I usually just clean the outside. Also I wanted to see your website, but it isn't working. Thanks,
Brian
