Audi A6 Enhancement Detail - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This Audi A6 Avant came in for a little freshen up.
The car is just over a year old and the owner wanted it to look as if it had just been collected again.

The order of the detail,

Full Auto Finesse safe wash and decontamination.
Enhancement Detail - Single stage machine polish.
The bonnet suffered from buffer trails so received a cutting set before being refined.
ODK Revere Ceramic Wax to protect the paintwork.
ODK Momentum for the wheels.
The leather was deep cleaned and protected.

The car on arrival.

Evidence of some rotary work at some point.

The wheels were cleaned and Iron Out applied.

Safe wash kicked off with Avalanche snow foam.

Not a hundred 100% sure on this but if its a painted garage floor the tyres can lift the paint off if sitting on the floor in one place for a prolonged period of time?

That's the one although the floor wasn't great when I moved into the unit and needs to be redone.

Superb turnaround on a really smart car! Can I ask what combination you used for the high gloss door pillars, this is an area that I always seem to struggle to finish clean with. Thanks
