Nice etchings (possibly bird-bomb) present on the bootlid:
Polish residues from previous sessions:
A nasty spotted N/S/R lower door:
General swirling on the bonnet:

Word of warning, if you use this product, do so in a well ventilated area! (Although the formulation has recently been changed, and, a new fragrance added, it still stinks and will haunt you for the best part of the day!)
The rest of the vehicle was washed – pre-wash, pre-rinse, foam, two bucket system etc.
The start of the decontamination process: tar removal with AutoSmart Tardis.
Shortly after, IronX used to remove embedded filings and other inorganic contaminants.
The RS4 was quite heavily contaminated. At the time of drop-off, the owner did mention how the car is (unfortunately) parked under two large trees and cannot escape in doing so…
Clay bar after half the roof and N/S glass:
The N/S doors and bonnet:
