Welcome to NICO!

In most newer cars, you're stuck buying the whole damned assembly. Your best bet is to have someone clear them up, or try it yourself. Check out a couple of youtube videos, or take the easy way out and get a clean towel and some toothpaste and rub them out. It'll only last a couple of months at a time, but isn't nearly as expensive.

Better yet, do it like a pro. I've used this kit on several cars, and the results are awesome (IF you take your time and do it right).

This one is my favorite: Sylvania Headlight Restoration Kit. Consumer Reports confirms that it's a good one. :)

Hello, I just read your post about headlight restoration kits. My 2008 ex35 passenger side headlight is all faded and foggy. My driver side was replaced, so the right side looks even worse now. I do not want to replace the entire unit, way too expensive, plus it still works fine. I've read and looked at the kits, Sylvania, 3M, Meguiar kits are all the better rated ones. You said you liked the Sylvania the best. Can you tell me why and do you or anybody else know if it can permanently damage the lens cover. Any input/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
