    Just had my car detailed today. Looks awesome! *** NEW PICS ATTACHED. WOOOOOO!!! ***

    My mate Matt recently set up his detailing company. Although a relatively new venture, he has 10 years experience as a sprayer in a bodyshop, so knows his way around a rotary polisher and how to make the best of paintwork. He's also built a number of show-winning cars, and has an attention to detail far beyond what I could ever manage!

    So I had him come down today, and had the 2 guys work solidly away from 8.30am until 5pm. The results are fantastic. The paintwork has a genuine mirror finish, far better than I imagined it would come up. I honestly can't rate the job high enough.

    The photos below are pretty crap as taken on my iPhone (flat battery on camera).

    But anybody in Northants / Leics / Notts looking for a good valeter / detailer, then give Matt a go. He also offers paintless dent removal, so a good combo! This is him: http://www.d2detail.com/

    Is it possible to keep it like that with sensible washing techniques or is there a wacky regime to keep up?
    And what would be the washing technique (2 buckets?)

    It's had several stages of treatment, and should apparently be good for 6-12 months. The advice I had was basically 2 buckets, a mit and good shampoo. I've got some mild Dodo Juice shampoo which shouldn't hopefully strip the wax too quickly.

    I don't expect to be able to keep it quite so tidy (it looks like glass!) but it should be relatively easy to keep looking pretty good I hope.

    300 is the usual cost for what he did today (2 men, whole day). But will vary depending on what needs doing.

    Cheers. I was shocked how well it came up! No swirls whatsoever now. There's a few light scratches in the paint, but it's 6 years old so to be expected. When I had it machine polished previously, it was better but quite swirly, but it's honestly like glass now...

    Very, very tidy Pete, looks amazing! Your mate is very skilled

    I have the same finish as you (brilliant black), so I know what it is like to try and keep looking swirl/scratch free ...... a bloody nightmare

    At some point when I have a spare day (which isn't often!) I'll get around to doing mine with the DA polisher.

    Maybe you should put some better pics up, when you get a chance, as you don't see many good looking double grilled A3's like yours being shown off

    BTW are the exhaust tips the ones for the Votex kit? If so, how do you attach them? I have the same rear diffuser, Cheers

    *edit* just read your mod list! Remus Exhaust, so that answers my question! Cheers anywho!

    Cheers. I've always been pissed off with black due to the swirls, but when it's like this I'm it's biggest fan.

    It was interesting that Matt said black was his favourite colour to detail, as it gives the most satisfaction when he's done.

    Cheers dude. Hoping to have it an Inters, so need to crack on and get the other few bits and pieces sorted soon. Already got a plan to drop the rear another 10mm, but it's catching a bit already, so the arches will need a bit of chopping up if it's to remain driveable!

    Cheers, I feel like an ambassador for the twin grill. Every other f*cker is getting rid, but I'm cool with it!

    Will try and get some better pics tomorrow as got a better camera at work anyway.

    Exhaust is Remus - tailpipes sit perfect with the Votex rear, and as they're staggered, they follow the lines, so looks like a factory combo IMHO.

    Tosser, there's always some jealous people that hate to see anybody with nice things. Makes me sick.

    Dartford is a long old way from Leicestershire, so maybe somebody a bit closer to home that would be recommended on here?

    But if anybody is in Matt's area, he's a good guy so always open to do a deal I'm sure.

    The tips come with a cutting guide to mark up the correct place where to hacksaw the old ones off......not for the faint hearted!..........You then attach them to the stubs and tighten the allen key grub screws.

    Thanks for that Ju!
    That will mean the Mrs and the kids will have to go out for the day for that mod then

    I know what you mean Pete, about being the ambassador for the twin grill, as I was going down the single grill/S3 conversion myself, when i saw the Votex Kit, I prefured that instead! Looks more aggressive to me IMO.

    Plus if I did decide on an S3 in the future, it wouldn't feel like buying a new car!

    its beautiful mate! you must be so proud of her

    once my new front and rear bumpers are on in a couple weeks i will look into detailing the car, and yes your mate is very far but i always like to go with people who have used a good company and can show good results.

    once again your A3 looks stunning! really love the job he has done to it!

    Looks cracking Pete, black is a pain sometimes but when it's properly cleaned up it's worth the pain.

    Will look even better once you get the new wheels on!

    Looks stunning Pete

    What a lovely car indeed black is the best colour when clean, question why do the wheels stick out further than the arch or is it an optical illusion

    Not sure, but will ask him next time I speak to him. The engine bay was pretty clean before, but now super clean.

    Not an optical illusion. Just what happens when you fit 9" wide rims. And I love it

    Looking at your photos I didn't like the way the rims stick out further than the tyres. Made it look like you had hub caps stuck on there.

    But to be fair, I like the look now. Quite a lot actually.
