My new Audi S8 D2

The replacement for my E39 530i of seven years, which sadly passed on recently as a result of a gearbox failure. The S8 had had car park dings repaired (receipts), but they looked as though they had used too much accelerator and not enough flash off time between lacquer coats. The finish then looked as though it had been mopped, but had later 'sunk' as the solvent eventually escaped.









2000 grit, Farecla G3, G10, Maguiars Step 2 clay polish, Dodojuice Supernatural.
