If they're in good condition a spray of Plexus should keep them clear & shiny. Klasse AIO works well too & works a bit longer for a touch more effort.

Just keep your headlights waxed or sealed on a regular basis. You can also use Opti-Lens Headlight Coating for a more permanent solution.

Just started my headlight restore project. Headlights weren't that bad but had signs of slight haze. They didn't have that "new car shine" to them anymore. Today I wet sanded and buffed the passenger side headlight. Still needs work. Going to do drivers side tomorrow and finish off the passenger side. Then clear coat both of them for the finial finish. Here's a preview of the passenger side.
