    already i have seen some tacomas on the road with the yellow film smudge on their headlights... Im sure im going to do my one day... I saw those diy kit from like pep boys... worth it? I also seen some where you have to buff it off and re-gloss? Man, mind as well go to a junkyard to see if they have the newest replacements...

    Stock for now.
    Yes use a restore kit then clean the headlights routinely. Cleaning them routinely will keep them looking nice and new.
