My plan is to replace the tail lights with really good LED's as to maintain some level of safety. Any suggestions for a 2012 hatch?

Wasnt happy with the light out output from the brakes even with the brighter leds, when standing behind the car. Removed that section with acetone. Then masked the outer areas and applied a few more coats. Love the look of the taillights even more now

Just followed the right up. I'm going to let it sit over night and then buff it in the morning. Good info on this thread. Here is how it looks before buff.

So i attempted to buff mine out today using the compound the OP sugested and mine still look pretty much the same. Is there a certain technique that needs to be used when doing this? mine are still pretty dull and i was hoping to get a more polished look.
