I doubt my vehicle info is required for this question but i have tried several brand headlight restorations and just cant afford to replace the actual headlight and wanted to know if anyone had any recommendations on a brand of headlight restoration that might actually work

I do detailing on the side and have probably done 100 headlights. Depending on how many cars in your household you can get an inexpensive dual action polisher and use compound to do your headlights. When I machine compound a car I always do the headlights and they stay clear for almost a year. If your only doing one or two cars the Meguiars heavy duty headlight restoration kit works pretty good. But you need a corded drill for the polishing part as most cordless ones don’t have enough power. Also a Mr Clean magic eraser will remove the haze but you still need a way to polish it. Magic erasers are a great detailing tool. Gets paint transfers off very well.

I polished mine several times with various polished but they all dogged up after a few months. Then I sprung for the Griots kit. It has lasted 10 months now and has no sign of going bad.

Restoration for what?

Are you talking about them being "foggy"? I'm not sure if it would work better than actual restorers, but I used toothpaste on a friends headlights and it worked great. not perfect, but nearly clear.
