    All they need is wet sanding and polishing back up, I did the exact same on a mates Astra a couple of weeks ago because his had gone all crazed, heres a couple of pics, if you want more info just ask

    This was before, note the weird cracking at the top

    This was after the wet sanding stages

    And finally after I machine polished them back to a good as new shine

    Just as Dubbers said , a wet sand and a polish up will sort them out, done thison my A3 and a mini before, electric polisher works best , you will be there for a month ofSundays doing it by hand.
