I had the same thing. I couldn't get it off. I was lucky enough for the dealership to get them replaced under warranty. It was a battle though.

I started getting that on mine after I made fun of DieSevens. But I was able to buff mine out. Good as new

Try using a clay bar to remove it.

I get that on mine here in Texas also. I use a shammy and Invisible Glass cleaner and it gets them looking shiny and new. Might be worth a try?

Since the 13-14s are all sealed units, try the following. Use some white vinegar on it to clean the water spots. Poor water from the inside of the trunk around the seal of the lights. If it is on the inside, take it to the dealer if it is under warranty.

You might check and see if there are any bulletins posted about this and if you can diagnose it yourself, get your car back quicker.

If it isn't under warranty, get a tube of black silicone and put it on the inside, making a seal.

Good Luck.....

Just buff it out with some fine polish. I use an orbital on mine and they come out looking nice.

I wouldn't use Blue Magic, that is a Metal Polish. . . .

Wash more often, use 303 on it a few times a year. You'll never get them.
Another solution - use Griots Garage #3 then #2 with a terrycloth towel. Polish with each, then wipe off and 303 it.

Use Blue Magic head light restore. It'll do the job. BTW, I use the metal polish on plastic before and it didn't harm the plastic, it actually worked pretty good.
