Golf R detail

Finally had time this week to do a few jobs on the golf i've been meaning to do since i bought it, as i do with every new to me car.

In a nutshell:

Wash/De-tar/De-contaminate/Clay paintwork
Polish exhaust tips
Clean engine bay
Clay + Coat windscreen/Rear window*with Gtechniq G1
Remove and thoroughly clean wheels, then seal with Gyeon Q2 Rim
Machine polish paintwork with my DAS6 Pro
Machine polish boot black trim/door black trim with my Rupes iBrid nano (what a tool this is)
Seal with Gyeon Q2 Prime*

These aren't the best photos like i normally would take, i just wanted to crack on with the job, so a fair few steps i didn't snap.*I also find white very hard to photo swirls, so none came out like i wanted. The paintwork was fairly swirly with the bonnet being the worst area.

After i went over the car with my DA, using lake country pads and menzerna polishes, i'd say it's about 90% better than it was. If i had more time and my back wasn't hurting so much, i could have done more.

Some of the above jobs i had already done but included pics anyway*

Nice car.

Has this replaced the M3 or do you still have it as well?
