    Hi, both my gf and I have 2001 A3 1.9 TDIs and both cars have cloudy front headlamps. A mechanic friend of mine said T-cut or Brasso works well at cleaning them but I have just spent 25 minutes using T-cut on one headlamp and it has barely, if at all, touched it.
    Please can I ask is this a common problem and how can I clean them?

    Thank you in advance.

    We had a 53 plate corolla with foggy headlights. I took ours to a friend who owns a car body repair shop. Cost £25 a light, but the best £50 I have spent, looked brand new. They have a special machine that cuts it right back and then there polished up.

    its the uv sun rays that cause it, and once you have them done, you need to wax them with a wax with uv protector in.

    people say t-cut, tooth paste, brasso, but none work.

    I use Meguiars! You can get a headlight restoration kit from halfords for about £20. It worked on my a4.
