    Anyone know what's best for getting your headlights gleaming and getting rid of condensation?

    You can get headlight restore kits that contain everything you need to polish the headlight.

    Personally I just use Meguiars PlastX with a rotary polisher. Others have mentioned using toothpaste as mild cutting agent to get satisfactory results.

    As for condensation, this suggest there is a seal failure somewhere on the headlight. Could be as simple as a cap/boot not refitted back properly after changing a bulb or perhaps the sealant between the glass and the plastic headlight housing as failed.

    If you can't find the failure then simply drying out the the headlight with a hair dryer and then dropping a silica pad into the headlight should keep the condensation at bay.
