I just used Wipe New for my headlights

I never thought it would work but they came out great. I'm not sure how long it will last but for $10.00?? Hell I'll spend that a few times a year. Anyone else used this product? How long has it lasted?

Wow, that's a lot better than I'd have expected from it. Interested to see how long it maintains.

that's looks good. is it really just a single wipe? is there any clear coat or is it just an all in one?

I used this with great success https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001TI5IIQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_Q5OsAbR1AXS3Z took a little time with the sanding etc.. but well worth it in my opinion brought back to near new. now as far as long time I kinda got ****ed here and I need to reapply clear coat as it rained right after finishing I don't believe it had enough time to cure. as a result I can already see it less than 2months later. problem is that kit I bought the clear coat was single use, lame!

No it's not just a single wipe... It came with everything you'll need to use.
Yes it did come with a one time clear coat that you use after you do both headlights. The box said (easy to apply) but it did take me about 20 minutes per headlight and it felt like my arm was gonna fall off with all the rubbing I had to do.

At 20 minutes per headlight you'd be further ahead getting one of those headlight restore kits that come with a buffing pad you put on a drill. You're looking at 5 minutes per headlight and a lot less elbow grease.

I also used it on my daily driver. It's a 2003 Mustang and those headlights were BAD!!!
The Mustang was the test car before using it on my Infiniti. Check out the before and after pics on the Mustang.

Some of us already have something that will do the same.

A bottle of ScratchX and finish off with regular carnuba wax.

I think I like the fact that your other car is a similar color lol. But honestly, I'm surprised it looks good.

Does look good. I typically just wet sand using 2000grit and then da buff with a microfiber pad and Megs Ultimate Compund. Very little effort and easy to do every 6 months if you don't want to deal with the UV clear coat.
