I've used the 3M Headlight Restoration Kit on a Clio 172. Amazing product, the headlights were really hazed and the kit brought them back up. Easy to use and great results

Do these kits stop the yellowing coming back?

No, all you are doing is removing a thin layer of the plastic lens to get down to the clear stuff so it can come back. Worth using some type of UV protection on the lens to slow it down, sealant or even wax will probably help.

Probably would help if done right, would try a google off it for the right stuff to use though, or possibly a clear film with some kind of UV protection in it would do the same job and stop any stone damage at the same time.

I used the Holts kit but finished them off with the Meguiars kit. Holts kit gives you a small disk to fit on an electric drill and various grades of wet and dry which you need to use until all marks and scratches are taken out then use the polishing sponge disk. I found the Meguiars kit with just the polishing compound and the polishing disk they provided produced a better final finish but it is no good for any deep scratches or marks. Once polished you need to seal lens otherwise it will happen again.
