Bentley Continental GT - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This gorgeous Bentley Continental came in for a well deserved freshen up.
Having covered only 50k miles in its 14 year life, it's seen it's fair fair of action.
Full front end and rear bumper and quarter panel respray - and possibly done a tour of the UK's hand car washes.

The order of the detail,

Full Auto Finesse safe wash process.
Decontamination - tar removal, iron fallout removal, clay bar and final IPA wipe down.
Major Enhancement Detail - multi stage machine polishing.
Gyeon Syncro to protect the paintwork.
ODK Momentum to protect the wheels.
Glass coated with Ceramic Pro Rain.

Onto the car - forgot to get some good before shots.

Safe wash process.

After the decontamination stages it was inside and prepared for polishing.
Some before and afters.

The paint work was then refined, followed by a final set with CarPro Essence as a primer for the ceramic to be applied.

Grills lightly polished.

And the interior lightly cleaned.

The wheels waxed with ODK Momentum - they'll be ceramic coated after a full refurb.

The paintwork protected with Gyeon Syncro ceramic coating.

Yeah, I'd hate to see the service charge on a W12

Crickey! Looks like a Mirror. Can I ask what the paint was like on the GT?

And me. I looked at buying an early model last year from a "normal" used car sales lot. After a chat with Bentley, they warned me that to get one without the genuine warranty could be very costly. For example, a failed gearbox typically runs at £10K.

Decided to leave it for the time being

These are quite robust cars, very rare to hear that the gearbox has failed. As long as it has been looked after regularly then you can’t go wrong. I have seen ppl with over 100k on clock and still going strong.

I don't doubt it - I know they are fantastic cars and very reliable. The one I saw already had 85K on the clock so this put me off. Ideally, I would go for the V8 but they are still out of my price range
