Question Oxidized headlights

Can anyone please help with how I can make my headlight covers look new again. These plastic covers oxidize so easily. Both me and my daughter have this problem with our 02 Tourings.

maguires has a clear plastic polish that works well.

You could get ond of those Flitz polishers I have seen advertised on tv. Crank it into a drill motor. They say it works but I have no personal experience with it. I have heard of other products specifically for that. I would search the net.
'03 Inferno Red GT, 5 speed, STAGE 1, Mopar BOV, Plastic Intake, Modified Upper and Lower Airbox, Custom Airbox-to-turbo pipe, Borla dual exhaust, Maddog Short Shifter, Drilled/Slotter Rotors, Ceramic Pads, chrome wheels, chrome door spears, AMP chrome fuel door, PT Cruiser 3rd light diffuser, H&R Springs, Rear Sway Bar added, MGW chrome door lock pulls, Blane's hood struts, Custom license plate mount, some interior dress up stuff...more to come

New Headlights is what it boils down to, Ive had this problem on other cars of mine and nothing is a permanent fix...

There is a product I think it is called Crystal view,, (comes in a silver pouch) That includes a couple of different sandpaper, compound, and a sealer to repair Fogged out lenses.

Crystal View Chemicals - The BEST headlight lens restorer, headlight defogger, headlight repair and headlight cleaner at the best value, Restore yellow , hazy, cloudy looking lens to like new condition!

I used it it cleared up my lenses,, still looks good.

That post is over 2 years old. If you can't find that product or just want to read some more on the subject here's a link to an older post with dozens of answers.
