Audi RS4 - Full Paint Correction, Detail + G Techniq by KDS

Hey Guys,



Earlier this year, after a week away at center parcs, the car sustained pollen damage, mainly to the bonnet and roof. It ended up covered in quite a thick layer of pollen all over in that week in the forest, and when washed off, the car was covered in tiny flecks that had etched the surface.







The car was already coated in gTechniq crystal serum and EXO by the previous owner of the car, so I contacted GTechniq and ended up in contact with their MD, Rob. He suggested a few things; I tried claying. I tried a light polish. I then tried a heavier polish. There was a marginal improvement, but not much.



There was nothing else for it, I had to book in for a professional to machine polish the car. There was no doubt where to look; KDS detailing already knew the car, and have an enviable reputation.



Although I wasn't covered by the original GTechniq guarantee (not transferrable),Rob kindly contributed towards the work



I'm told I was very fortunate that they were so busy that Mr KDS himself, Kelly, was drafted in to polish my car.



I went for a gold paint correction package (15 stage wash, clay, engine bay clean and detail, interior clean and detail, wheels off to clean and coat in wheel armour, 2-3 stage machine polish), plus reapplication of GTechniq crystal serum and EXO. Rob at GTechniq sent over a batch of their latest formulation of EXO which is supposed to be more durable and less prone to water spotting than v2.



The results speak for themselves. The car looked incredible under their spotlights when I went to collect!



I'd apologise for all the pics, but who am I kidding, I'm not even sorry haha...thrilled with the results. Pollen marks gone, and the car looks better than I could imagine a 9 year old nearly 100k motor could look.



Many thanks to Jay, Kelly and team at KDS, and Rob at Gtechniq.



Zillions of pics to follow....

Lovely car, looking gorgeous


So Gtechniq Crystal Serum & EXO must not be all they're cracked up to be if they can't withstand pollen.



Cheers.
