These pillars are known to scratch super easily. You can make it less noticeable with a heavy compound followed by a polish. Meguiars M105/M205 works great. Menzerna FG400 followed by Menzerna 4000. One of my favorite polishes is Sonax Perfect Finish. You can hand polish this area since it is relatively small, but would be easier with a 3"-4" pad on a dual action polisher.

the scratches look kind of deep, may require wetsanding.. but i wouldn't recommend it unless you have a DA to buff it out with.

These aren't the shadow line pillars that he has. Please don't do this, it will totally fuxk your trim up. The trim he has is the soft touch matte black trim.
