Default Headlight Lens Restoration

Can anyone suggest a good plastic lens restoration product that actually works?
I really don't want to pay $700 for a pair of Off-Shore headlights for the wife's Cadillac.

Best results I have gotten were from the Mckees 37 kit. I used the cheaper one, now they sell a bigger version too.

I used a high powered buffer and light compound on my dads 2007 Equinox and it made them look like new. Took a little time but it was worth it.

This may sound very simplified but I have used hand applied chrome polish on my KIA Optima headlights with great results. Just apply to a clean rag and hand polish to finish. Repeat as necessary. It works for me.

After reviewing this I'd like to clarify what I used to polish my headlights. It was not chrome polish but instead it was Mag and Aluminum polish. Sorry. It really does work good with only a little elbow grease. Now I can sleep at night lol.
