Thanks for your post. The pics were great encouragement. I had done this once with the headlights in place - results were decent. More importantly it was a great big pain in the butt.
I saw your pics and was inspired to take them out this time and try to get your results. It was much easier to take out the lights than I had thought (or I would have done that last time). Got one headlight done in about 2 hours this evening. Some work and time, but not at all bad and well worth it. It looks fantastic. I have a 1999 528 whose headlight now looks new. Never thought it could look that good after so many miles/wear. The other headlight and my dirty car are now put to shame. Will be doing the other headlight and washing the car tomorrow for sure.
Thanks again for the detailed write up and pics. One more reason I love this forum.
