Now some of you know that we had an Ibis White Audi TTRS earlier last year (Jan 2011 S3 sold for this one!) which was sold for the arrival of the Audi RS3 :'( As it was driven away from the unit it felt like my heart was being ripped out.....
Due to the long wait for the RS3 to be made, both Andrew and I missed our toy and the roar of the 5 cylinder engine.
So we decided to take the jump and get another, now I really didnt want a white one as I was after a more challenging colour but this one came along with every spec we could ask for :D
Now there was some history with the alloys as the guy that owed it previously wanted the original alloys for his new diesel TT and the garage allowed him to take them and put the diesel one's on the RS :o. Therefore we agreed a deal and got the rota's put on shipped directly from Germany and my first job on arrival.....
Alloys off cleaned, clayed and 2 coats of Chemical Guys Jetseal 109
Wheel arches were cleaned as well while the alloys were off, looked like it had been driven through a field. Half way through
Next stage was the usual snowfoam, 2 bucket wash and clay, etc
Assessment of the paintwork before starting the correction. The car's not been treated too well and think numerous visit to the automatic wash was evident:
Couple of 50/50. I was using Supernatural Wool Pads for the cut due to the extremely hard Audi paint and to refine yellow and blue 3M pads in combination with 3M polishes
In action shots of final polish...
Nice shine but look at the orange peel
Correction on the lights
Once the car was finished it was taken over to the sign writer to be decaled up as a promotion car. Chemical Guys Ez Creme Glazes and Chemical Guys Celeste Dettaglio Paste Wax were the last stage products

Oh and this will be the death of this one as its up for sale now on Piston Heads and it no longer looks so perfect due to Andrews wash regime :'( :'(
Update: TTRS now gone as our RS3 has arrived and waiting for it to be detailed once my foot has healed and I change my hair colour as often as our cars as its back to blonde
