    Talking Just received car back from the detailer (Large Pictures)

    I have just got back from picking up my car from the detailer. I have attached some pictures, although they are only phone quality as I didnt have a camera.. The detailer is sending me some pictures hopefully later today.

    Even though the car was only 7 weeks old, the paint was swirled and marked from where the dealer had done a poor job of washing the car, the detailer machined polished and corrected the paint removing all swirls and putting it back to the same condition as it was when it came out of the factory.

    Front of car


    Front Again


    Paint (No swirls at all)


    Rear


    Again apologies for the poor photo quality, these will be replaced with the digital camera pics shortly.

    In total the whole process from start to finish took 6-8 hours.

    Im afraid to take it out in the rain now!

    Ask to speak to Robbie.

    I met him through my friend David Kennedy who is the editor for Performance VW magazine.

    Thanks for the comments

    You bought a brand new car and the dealer made a poor job at cleaning the car - leaving swirl marks !
    Excuse me, but how on earth can you let the dealer get away with that ? I would have been jumping up and down at the dealer and passing him the bill or allow him to rectify it first.
    It's fair enough if it's an older car or one that you purchased elsewhere and just had it serviced (maybe !), but come on - you've spent a fair wack (of your kiddies inheritence !) with them and Audi these days will bend backwards to keep loyal customers happy - especially as you have just recently purchased one new from them.
    02 plate - 2002 - 225bhp - S3 - Ming Blue - completely standard - nuff said, OK there's a centre armrest, sunroof, BOSE speakers & black leather recaros, oh and the non OE chrome pack !

    It wasn't exactly brand new, it's an ex demonstrator 2 months old.. And I did knock him down by 4k when I got the car

    I would be furious if it was brand new with swirls.. It only had light swirling but the main reason it went in was for a good layer of protection. To go on instead of the 400 Audi protection.
