Headlights Discoloured

My headlight is discoloured. It seems the previous owner was over zealous with the cleaning regime. How can I restore the headlight?

Thanks, PP.

I think you can use a headlight restoration kit. I have heard good things about the Philips one but I'm sure there are also other decent alternatives.

as said, had good results on my 147 with the Philips headlight restoration kit. One of the advantages is that it comes with a special UV protective coating, to keep your restored headlights looking good . There are a number of other kits out there.
