Best method is a bit of G3 cutting compound on a rag/polishing pad. Scrub hard and then buff off the compound. Then use some nice polish/wax to seal over the top. You will know when you're getting through the shit.

Just to add if you have the time to take them out, wetsanding them from 600-1500 grit first will give them a flatter surface and remove imperfections giving a better final result than just compounding alone. Then as above hit them with some cutting compound, fillowed by a good polish and a wax :)

Do you take the clear plastic lense off of the light fitting or can you get around it?
I tried to clean mine up before but didn't want to take them fully apart as I wasn't sure how well I could get them back together.

It's usually only issues with the external of the headlight. There's ways of getting them apart but it involves the oven....
