The Mother's Nu Lens kit is awesome. It lasts longer than most others do. Any full kit that requires a drill to buff the lens and includes a sealer is your best bet. If you want a quick hand buff on and off, the Blue Magic bottle is great. You have to do it every now and then to keep up on it, but it is a lot cheaper and the bottle lasts quite a while.

DO NOT use bug spray, it will ruin your headlights! Toothpaste doesn't work well at all either, despite what some say! Also, the Meguiar's white bottle? Not worth spending the money on.

That's basically what all these kits are these days... so they just come with fine sand paper, water sprayer for the wet sanding and then a polishing compound and typically a drill attachment to install a buffing wheel to use that compound.
