VW Golf R Enhancement Detail - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This Golf R came in for a much needed freshen up.
The owner admittedly only had the car washed a few times a year, sometimes at the local hand car wash and when it goes to VW for a service.
They had seem some previous Golf R details I had completed on a Facebook group and got in touch to see what could be done.

After an assessment we decided to go for an Enhancement Detail (single stage machine polish) with some Auto Finesse wax protection.

The order of the detail:

Full safe wash and decontamination.
Single stage machine polish to remove the swirls and some deeper marks.
Auto Finesse Desire for the paintwork.
Auto Finesse Mint Rims for the wheels.
Exterior rubbers and plastics treated.
Exterior glass sealed.
Exhaust tips polished.
A light clean up for the interior.

The car on arrival.

Wheels up first.

They hadn't been cleaned properly in a long while.

Then onto the safe wash process.

The car was then treated for tar and fallout removal before being washed again and taken inside to be dried.

Before I clayed the car I took a quick picture of what was to come.

After the car received it's clay bar treatment, it was time to blow dry all the water traps, tape up the delicate bits and begin the machine polishing stage.
(this is a single stage Enhancement Detail so deeper marks and scratches will remain)

Which polish and pad did you use for the single step? Fantastic results in correcting those swirls

Lovely turnaround,

looking at the brush you used for thr wheel faces, do you find it as effective as a wheel mitt? quicker to use?

The Vikan brush is great.
I tend to use a few brushes and then follow up with a mitt around the spokes.
