Easy, just use toothpaste, if it's too stubborn for that Autoglim chrome polish, don't bother with the fancy concoctions from detailing retailers, they are just snake oil.

I've always used Meguiars Scratch X 2.0. You can pick up a tube from your local Halfrods.

I don't think there's a single thread on this, there are many ways and many preferences - I think I'd have a look on youtube to see which way would suit you - I found at least 5 vids on s2000 headlights without trying too hard.

Yep, dull headlghts are dull headlights. Probably hundreds of Youtube videos. Our S2000 lights ain't special in this respect. Any auto parts store will have several different kits which include polish and finish/sealer. Get some wide blue "painters" tape to protect the bodywork.

Another vote for using toothpaste.

You can find it in the "Snake Oil" isle.
