    We were recently approached by a customer who purchased a S3 from a local Car Supermarket! I dont really want to name and shame here but this car was in a complete and utter state!!! Shocking! To be honest i dont think ive ever come across a car so uncared for and abused!

    Anyway we had a discussion with our client about the job in hand and set to work giving the car some very much needed Autobrite Love!

    So here you will see a selection of photos from different angles, before shots of the terrible buffer trails and swirls and some glossy after shots after the painstaking polishing the rock hard ceramic clear coat

    The products were use are

    Kranzle K10 (old style)
    Our new wheel cleaner (de-ironizer)
    Citrus Wash
    Marolex Sprayer 2000
    New Detailing Brush
    Jaffa Clean
    PurpleSnow Foam
    Twin Bucket Method
    Lambswool mitt (Eurow)
    Fluffy Drying towel
    Berry blast detailer/clay lube
    Fine & aggressive clay
    Blue 3M tape
    Megs 105
    Green hexlogic pad
    Flex Rotary
    Euphoria cleanser
    Black Magic Carnauba Wax
    A selection of soft microfibres & applicators
    Enhance
    Vinyl trim
    Our new gloss enhancer!!!
    Glass Mate
    Repel
    To seal & protect (wheels)
    Water based tyre gloss
    interior pink sheen dressing (matt)

    So have a look and enjoy our photographs!
























































































































































































































































































































































































































































































    Hope you like!

    Regards Mark

    better than new even and top work as always

    This is the result of a very large Car Supermarket in the UK, they sold the car to the guy knowing this was in the state that it was in. Unfortunaly the customer did not notice the buffer trails, swirls, variours panels been repainted (they even painted over the rear window seals), chips, etc etc.. From a distance i guess it would have looked ok or if he bought it from inside or something im not sure, all i know is i feel sorry for the guy and the company should be ashamed of themselves for selling him this S3!

    Thanks for the comments!
