Cool Trashed By Dealership Solid Black MK3 Audi TT Resurrection •*Offset Detailing

This MK3 Audi TT in solid black (brilliant black) was in for a paint correction after a repair at an Audi dealership and then "polished up for the customer".

Extreme holograms from their rotary machines, extreme swirl marks and scratches. Basically a bloody mess. A multi stage machine polishing process was carried out to remove the majority of the defects, some deep scratches were taken right back. Paintwork protection came from Gyeon MOHS ceramic coating.

Exterior glass coated with Gtechniq Smart Glass, wheels and tyres treated with Gyeon products, engine bay dressed and interior cleaned. Exhaust tips polished using Britemax Twins.

I took photos in all light to give you an idea of the outcome. Serious depth on this now! Under led's, under normal tube lights, late afternoon sun, and full sunlight outside.

Catching rays.

'Proper job' But seriously- would a dealership inflict that much damage, or did they just do a quick polish revealing underlying nightmare?

There's professionals and there's PROFESSIONALS.

There's the kitchen scourer and Brillo pad professionals then there's


Absolutely superb.

Makes you wonder why they didn't just slap some SRP on it as that would have been quicker and less destructive. Cracking turn around

I think using the term "Trashed by the dealer" is a bit OTT without any pictures of the car before it went in. Yes you've done a great job and it looks great but I don't think there is a need for it
