From a 2012 review on Amazon [amazon.com]:

"On Amazon, there were three 3M kits listed, the 39008, the 39014, and 39045 for approx $17, $18, and $24 respectively, all with great reviews. I couldn't for the life of me figure out the difference int he kits, so I went with the cheapest, the 3M 39008 Headlight Lens Restoration System. Well, now I know the difference. ALL the kits include:
1 - 3M drill backing plate
4 - P800 grit white abrasive discs
6 - P500 grit yellow discs
1 - P3000 Trizact foam disc
1 - Orange foam compounding pad
1 - 1 oz. 3M headlight lens polish sample

- The 3M 39014 Lens Renewal Kit includes all the above plus:
1 - 3M Masking Tape PN 0000 25 ft.

- The 3M 39045 Lens Renewal Kit with Protectant includes all of the above plus:
1 - Container of protectant formula"

Yes and no. If your dealing with a headlight that will polish out with toothpaste it wasn't that bad to start with.

Badly discolored and scratched lenses won't see much help with toothpaste.

Really all your doing with any of thee kits is sanding down the lens and polishing it back to clear. If you start with a 220 and work your way up to a 1500 or 2000 sandpaper and follow that up with some compound you will see the same results as the "kits" do.

In for one, mostly just want the wax/protectant applicator. I have my own grit paper.

Toothpaste works to a certain extent. Tried it myself, you can get off some of the discoloration and blur but it doesn't work to fully restore the headlights

Which is all true. But if you don't already own all those grits and the compound, how much is that going to cost you? I actually bought one of these kits from a previous deal and for $2 it was very convenient and worked very well. The directions were very simple for those who maybe never wet sanded/compounded anything before. And I had enough leftover to do another car, ymmv depending on headlight size.

I purchased a 3M kit that rquired a drill and it worked great. About 2 years later, the headlights needed a touchup and I used toothepaste that had a higher abrasive content with the buffer from the kit and they look brand new again.

Thanks OP. I went with one of the ones that use a drill. I don't want to tire myself too much :-)
