I don't know about the lens getting dirty, but I wash the outside like the rest of my car. It never got too bad. Maybe you want to get a net bug sponge or give it time to soak in soap water if you have trouble.

From...
https://www.celicahobby.com/gal3/inst_headlightspots

Using "TurtleWax 'Scratch & Swerl Remover'" as directed on the package - followed by a wet cloth and an aplication of "Mothers 'Plastic Polish'"

following-up by using plastic polish is also a good sugestion if your headlights started out realy bad

park your car in the sun for the afternoon...
if the condensation returns, bring your car into your fav toyota repair center and try to get it covered under warranty.

actualy... when you spell the name incorrectly, the system write it for you wave

if you type "isaac" it will write 'isaac... if you write "is[/b]sac" it will write "SIR Isaac"

if the name was just spelled it correctly, it wouldn't happen

some people would intentionally spell the name wrong... such as "iS[b]
Sac" is what they would type... they would do it to piss me off... so I programmed this to piss them off rofl

this 'feature' has been programmed into the site since mid-July grin

More information on how ignorant some people are, at...
https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Number=111203
And by 'ignorant', i mean that the name is written on just about every page of this site, but people are slow to learn
