I just wanted to know if anyone else has had a problem with the headlamps getting this like foggy like film across the top each headlamp. I've had my car for a little over 3 years now and they are starting to look pretty bad. I will try to post a pic soon. I think I am going to but the JDM headlamps. Basically the same look except they don't have the yellow reflector on them. They look nice. Click Here~~~> Headlamps

Yeah i've tried waxing them and it helps a little bit but a couple of days later it just comes back. I really hate that crap. They call them Euro JDM. I am just going off of the description. They are about $150 on Ebay including shipping. What do you guys think about them?

are you talking about the being "sand blasted"?

if you'd like to save the money i bet you could sand them down again, i've seen a few guys do it to their Acuras and have it come out real nice.

but it can be pretty time consuming, like start with 400 grit and work up to like 1500 or higher something like that.

that stuff is crap, usually 3m makes a good product... the novus is a 3 step cleaner/polish, first removes DEEP scratches, next lighter ccratches, and the third polishes the hell out of the plastic/lexon.. it really works well, but you have to patient and follow all 3 steps...

I had that same problem too. I had mine warrantied just recently and they look as good as the first day I laid eyes on my car. Is your car still under warranty?

JDM...hahaha your funny. if you ever look at JDM lights they usually have amber in them. NOTE the EVO VIII tail lights. or the 95+ eclipes taillights. those are Euro lights not JDM a car built in mexico or canada isnt Japanese Domestic Market. my EVO on the other hand is straight up turn key 100% japanese.
