Thanks very much for the comments all!

In answer to the questions:

The interior was done by plush automotive, actually before I owned the car. 3/4 charcoal alcantara, 1/4 leather, TT RS wheel, alcantara headliner.

The car is currently on 98k miles, but has been extremely well looked after by all owners. At least 3 of us RS enthusiasts and members of the RS246 forum.

Yes indeed, a brand new version of EXO. I believe it's not commercially available yet. KDS have been testing it and have good things to say about it's performance, but said its a royal pain in the...arms...to apply!

Well for a car knocking on 100k that's testimony to how well it's been looked after by you and previous owners

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

Oh how the neighbours laughed at me!

Not much more than a week after KDS's superb job on my car, and it's absolutely filthy!

Well, it was for good reason, a 900 mile round trip, plus about 250 miles away driving some fantastic roads in sunny Scotland!

The result:













Time to get to work! I had dry weather, just over an hour to spare, and a box of goodies from gtechniq:



I started with the wheels. Before:



Gave them a spray of gTechniq W6:



Perhaps an odd way to do things, but after the wheel cleaner has had a couple of minutes, I like to spray just the wheels with snowfoam (bilt hamber)



Now, if it was just a light clean, I could probably just jet wash off, but this time I had to agitate first. 1" brush..



Wheels ready to be pressure washed:



And then after pressure washing, looking more like it!



Time to snowfoam the whole car now



I've got to say I was really pleased with the gTechniq wash mitt. Hold so much water! Much more than my previous lambswool mitt.



After hand washing the car with 2 buckets, g-wash and the gTechniq mitt:



Time to break out the gTechniq drying cloths. I got 2, as per Rob Earle's advice (gTechniq MD). They are really lightweight and supposedly draw water through their surface layer into the core of the towel. They were much thinner and lighter than I'd expected, which didn't fill me with confidence...but I was mistaken! They really do the job!



After drying the car easier and more thoroughly than I'd ever done previously with any of my vast collection of microfibre towels, I decided to put another of Rob's tips into action. He said on email that the finish can look a little dull if there are minor amounts of water left behind, dried on the surface. A way to get round this is by giving the car a quick once over with quick detailer.



And the final result.

In your face neighbours at no 13!!!

A few pics from the first show since the paint correction; Wings and Wheels. I had a few comments from people on the paint finish
