Love this thread. Here's what I did to a new to me 05 GX. My lenses weren't as bad as some I've seen. Took a Mr Clean Magic Eraser and in a spray bottle a combo of Woolite and water and cleaned the lenses. Saw lots of grime come off and a marked improvement is light quality thru the lens. Next polished with PlastX. The plastic feels smooth but you can still see some scratches when the lights are on. Wet sand and polish could be on the horizon if I'm not satisfied with the replacement the bulbs, might go LED. All my other cars have HID's and I am really spoiled.

I have to wonder if there's been improvements in the poly carbonate technology since these first came out so that the hazing and yellowing isn't as big a problem as the early cars with it.
