Meguiars PlastiX is a plastic polish made specifically for stuff like this.

No problem. I've been meaning to pick some up to try out but haven't gotten around to it. You can get it at most chain parts stores. I know the AutoZone in my town carries it.

I've buffed out headlights before. Just passed over them with the buffer while doing the rest of the car. But I'd try the meguires 1st.
