Default 3M Headlight kit and New Rims

I tried the 3M headlight restoration kit today, did Great on the first one, and got alittle too ****y on the second and left some swirl marks.
before

after


I swapped to a set of Jeep Liberty 17's with 235/55 and 235/65 (freebies!) They seem to have a better offset then the Mazda rims

Also washed it (2nd time since February) and took some shots

Looks good. What's your overall thought on that 3M headlight restoration kit? I've been meaning to pick one of those up to do the GFs car.
