Its too cold to do it now. Unless the temp is 20 c or so, i can't buff them out for you since the plastic won t melt in

NAPA and Canadian Tire sell a product from 3M I believe that is specifically designed to fix yellowed or discoloured plastic. Specifically designed for automotive uses..... check it out..... what I'm reading above sounds like a lot of work.......

I used the 3M kit on my 540 and it worked great. It was about $30, goes on a drill, has 2 kinds of sandpaper, a special polishing foam, and a buffing pad with polish. It took maybe 25 minutes to do both lights, and they were pretty bad.

I bet you i can make them look brand new without that kit. I use a 3000 rpm buffer, alot more then a drill, and hand sand.

i do it the way dealerships refurb headlights
