I wanted to do the LED interior but I heard that it shows every imperfection/scuff/scratch/etc. Is that true?

Also, I would love to add LED reverse lights but I heard that it will throw codes.
The LED interior does not show imperfection/scuff/scratches.. on the contrary, it makes them less obvious IMO. In terms of reverse lights, just make sure you get the canbus (error-free) LEDs then you would be fine.

I agree.. the new F12 has a very narrow trunk area which makes the badge a lot more prominent.

I just used a heater to heat up the badges first, poured a little 3M adhesive remover over the logos, then used dental floss to slowly remove them. Not too hard; just takes some time and patience.
