Audi S5 - System-X - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This Audi S5 is only 6 months old, but the new owners began to notice problems a few weeks after collection.
The car had seen some machine polishing at some point leaving buffer trails on the front end and a few random spots around the car.
The damage was hidden well by a glaze from the dealership but as it wore away, the trails began to show.

The order of the detail,

Wheels, tyres and arches cleaned.
Full safe wash process.
Decontamination - tar removal, iron fallout removal, clay bar and IPA wipe down.
Enhancement Detail - Some areas received multiple machine polishing stages - others only needed a single stage to restore the finish.
System-X Pro Ceramic Coating applied to the paintwork.
Wheel faces coated with System-X Pro.
Exterior glass coated.
Interior lightly cleaned and floor matts and leather protected.

The car on arrival.

Wheels cleaned before Iron Out was used to remove the embedded brake dust.

ODK Arctic snow foam softening the grime during the pre-wash.

After the safe wash and decontamination processes - the car was prepared for machine polishing.

Some before and after shots.
