What you are seeing above is a comparison of headlights. The shot on the top is pre-polish. The shot below is post. As you can see in the top shot, my headlights were looking a little worse for wear. And they worked about as good as they looked.
So, a little splurge today. Twice actually. I gave Roxy her first full service car wash since I actually worked for a car wash. And, when the ticket writer said to me, in a last ditch effort to get more than a car wash sale out of me, “lemme do your headlights for $30”, I acquiesced. And I’m glad I did.
Besides looking better, my headlights are actually useful again! Safety first and all that, right? This is another one of those things that fall under the should-have-done-a-long-time-ago category.
Honestly, Roxy’s lights _weren’t_ that bad. Mom’s PT Cruiser (same yea, about 90K miles), were much, much worse. And still are. I think I know what I will be getting her for Christmas.
If your lights are cloudy and not as clear as they were when you first bought your MINI, I would highly recommend a trip to either your local full service car wash to see if they offer the service, or cruise over to Harbor Freight/Amazon and pick-up the 3M kit for about $20. You’ll be glad you did!
