Nice looking motor, I have one myself (mk7 estate in lapiz blue).. admittedly its looking a tad neglected at the moment due to a never ending (seemingly so!) DIY jobs taking up my time, but hopefully will be able to get it back to a reasonable state in the near future...

Here are some from earlier in the year when I first got the car - certainly doesn't look this clean at the moment! (+ the alloys need a refurb, but these will be being sorted in a couple of weeks time..)

Quick question - when you were polishing, how hard did you find the paint? (i.e. how many passes did you need to get decent correction) - I realise that this is subjective to the individual car and polisher setup however.

Also for areas such as section above the windows, I presume you used a 3" spot pad/plate?

It’s fairly hard paint. 2 passes, then a finishing pass. Yeah,used a 3” spot pad.

Tornado R Estate

Realised I’d never put pics up of the car on it’s new wheels.





Also tried out Carbon Collective Speciale.
Really like this. Breeze to apply and seams to bead well so far. Was very impressed with their Lusso shampoo too.


Hope these images work - offshore currently and WiFi is pants!
