I have used headlight polish and it works amazingly.

Preemptively I recommend you get one of the kits from your local autoparts store (many brands, I'm sure they are all fine, I used turtlewax). The kit comes with sandpaper, buffing compound and usually a wipe that has protective gel.

I would put the protective gel on your headlights if they are clear, or use the whole kit if they aren't.

Also use a interior windshield screen when its sitting so the sun doesnt damage your interior.

A window tint is also usefull for preventing damage to your interior.

As you can see I too am obsessed with my Z. Luckily it is garaged and is not a daily driver. lucky me.
Headlight Armor sells clear and tinted covers for the 350Z. I've had them on mine for several years and mine still look fine. Not for everyone, but a longer lasting alternative than any polish I'd bet.

Too many vehicles and limited car space means the 11 year old Z gets the outside treatment -

They can handle it -

Congratulations on your new Z ! & Best wishes that the excitement lasts throughout the ownership experience, the Z can do that for you.
