I use Meguiar's NXT and this stuff called Liquid Glass. Problem is if the surface is not even it shows up even more, especially on darker cars.

I've got an 04 WRX with nearly 70K miles. Learned to live with all the pits on the front and all. My sides and back are nice and shiny though.

You may need a professional detailer who will wet sand/ touch up paint for you. I've given up on the front end and will just re-paint it someday, especially since I just can't resist gravel roads...
