Yes I used one of the kits to do mine. Can't remember the one I used, but set side some time and patience if you're going to do it properly. They do come up well so it's worth the effort.

Hi
I bought a kit from Aldi last week...Shark brand, which is German...for £4.99
Contained polish, 6 polishing cloths, lens sealant paste, 3 x different grades of wet use sandpaper and a rubber sanding block...bargain.
Result...was a great improvement with the dull coating coming off with surprisingly little effort, especially using the sandpaper..and I've got enough of everything left for another cleaning session in the future. Might be worth checking if any left in stock
I love Aldi !!

Nice job 👍... I wonder why the headlights on the Winds seem to get so bad over a period...I've not encountered this issue on any other car before
