Hi, A couple of my friends have cleaned up hazy headlight lenses (which failed the MoT) with toothpaste and say it worked very well indeed. I believe it needs to be standard white tooth paste and not the sort with "cooling crystals" etc. You use it with a soft cloth and polish away at the plastic lens. It does take a little while I'm told and not just a few minutes.

How bad is it? Toothpaste will do it and there are other products on the market like Quixx that do the job as well.

Some interesting videos on youtube regarding cleaning up hazy lights. The cure seems counter productive as most use very fine grit abrasive papers then finsish off spraying with a clear laquer. They look good afterwards though. Intend doing my sons 207 when the weather is reasonably predictable.

I heard that in such cases сleaning of headlights may help. In my car headlights were broken and I had to change them. I bought them here https://www.uzooka.com/peugeot-headlights/ but after that I had same problems with them. I went to the service center where my problem was eliminated.
