VW Golf R Major Enhancement - Gtechniq - detailR, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This tidy looking Golf R came in for a much needed freshen up.
The car doesn't get used all that much, but it's survived it's fair share of poor wash techniques.

To bring the car back to life, the following package was chosen;

Major Enhancement Detail - 2 stage machine polish.
Gtechniq C1 & EXO ceramic coatings.

On arrival it looks okay.

So onto the clean up - Auto Finesse products used throughout.

Once fully clean and decontaminated, the paintwork was assessed and polishing began.

Thanks guys
The owner was thrilled with the outcome.
It was a mass of grey haze under his garage lights - now it's nice and clear, and fully protected
