Audi A1, Full Correction, [AUD1ESEL by mgpdoc]

Hello there.
Some of you may know me from the Projects and Restorations area mostly where i have some build threads of my project cars.

This thread though is about a detailing session my daily commuter had, after one year of owning it. The correction was held in the shop of a good friend of mine, in Athens. Greece.

Some things i know about the things that were involved in the story.

I cleaned the car at home, and went to the shop where we began the inspection. Car was looking good from a distance, but things were different in a closer look. You will see what I mean in the pics to follow.



So,

-We went around the car with a good clay bar session
-Car was corrected with a combo of Correction Compound D300 and Meguiar's 105 in a MF pad mostly
-Then Orange Lake County with Menzerna PF2500
-White with Meg's 205
-Jewelling with a Rotary and white pad with Car Pro Essence

Then a day later
-Swissvax Crystal Rock
-Finished everything with a Swissvax Quick Finish

-Glasses/Windows were polished with Car Pro Ceri Glass
-Flyby Forte Seal was applied as well

-Trims were treated with Car Pro Delux with amazing results- cant recommend this enough

-Wheels were sealed with Swissvax Autobahn
-Interior was done with mostly Swissvax products on the alcantara parts, and finished the plastic trims with the amazing Meguiar's Ultimate Interior Detailer, which I loved so much that I also bought it, just like a DeLux kit for me to have.

So onto pics, which is what everyone wants to see I guess. Befores and Afters, and then some final pics. Excuse my photographic skills, these pics though have zero edit on them.



































































I also removed my tailights which were stained in the plastic part, and made them satin black, with an oem finish





And we also polished them as well afterwards





And onto some finished pics inside the shop



















Interior was not left unloved either



And some pics with a clear sky above and natural light, again no edit in these pics.



















I hope you liked it, I know I certainly did.

Comments and criticism are always welcome.

Cheers guys

Mike

Stunning looking A1 and those wheels look very nice, however the car sits to low for my liking. Nice work by the way.
