Skoda Kodiaq dealership coating removal

Im gone atry and stay on point with this thread, and limit the images. This is why I recommend to NOT pay for dealer protection packages. They use bad products badly.

So as always the car goes through a thorough wash, chemical and physical decontamination, and then once dried is placed in the surgery

The wheels were removed to be cleaned again and coated

So first thing, dealerships can not polish, and even when they can they are not given the time to do it

Now to the real problem at hand. That etching!

And I think visually, the worst thing....

Once the rest of the car was coated, along with the interior leather, it was time for collection

Moral of the story is, for n to much more money you get a far superior job.
Value does not always mean cheap

A properly finished and sealed car. Excellent demonstration of your skills and difference between a pro and commercial rushed job.

Did they opt for ceramic package or just a wax/sealant? Either way, good work and a wax or sealant will probably out last the 'life long protection package' that was 'applied' to the vehicle!

I had a look out of interest how much dealerships are paying detailers. Was quite shocked to read an advert for a BMW dealership. They wanted to pay £7/hr for someone who has >12 months experience and can perform 'a 3 stage machine polish'. They probably want that complete within the hour as well lol..

Matt I applaud you as always what a great job.

Most of us on here struggle to allow a dealer to look at our cars never mind do anything to them but there are still folk out there who see it as a great deal. Even I am surprised at what I would only describe as disgraceful the condition they've let that car go out in.

It's nice to see the different cars on here. Not a fan of the car and in fairness first time I've seen one but I can't deny the quality of the turnaround from yourself and as I say it's nice to see something different or 'normal'

Great job

What do you think they had tried to use Matt? one of the wet-applied silicon sealants like AF Aqua Coat?
Don't knock it tho, keeps you out of mischief

Its a Skoda so its VW group.. they offer the Life Shine package from AutoGlym and charge the best part of £500 for the pleasure of wrecking your car... The dealer was mildly surprised when i turned it down, then further asked not to touch my car lol.
