Hi guys, been browsing the forum for a while now when looking for information on the B8 A4 from the experiences of the people who drive it everyday, but then when we actually took delivery of our new pride and joy, i turned my attention to how best to look after it.
I instantly started looking at the detailing section here but i thought it best to ask for some specific advice on how best to go about detailing the car.
I have never done any detailing whatsoever prior to this and didn't even know about all the dangers of causing scratches or even the more detailed knowledge of how to polish and protect.
I have had a look at the sticky thread and it definitely gave me a good idea about the starting points, but i have questions specific to my own situation and of course the budget,
We do not currently have a polisher machine and looking at things, i assumed on a new car it might not be necessary and don't think it would really be ideal on the budget as i'd rather the bulk go on actual products.
So, i want to know what you guys think is the best way to go about the detailing for a newbie within a budget of approximately 150-300 (sorry, the laptop pound sign is broke).
I thought that the PB Blackfire wet ice over fire kit would be the ideal product from start to finish to get the best possible look on the vehicle and i was gonna combine this with also buying the snow foam lance kit with meguiars hyper wash.
The problem is however that the pressure washer we currently have, is an RAC version that in fact, we haven't used yet as we need to find a proper hose connection but the actual kit on the PB site does not mention a fitment option for that model.
So, would i potentially have to buy a new pressure washer? Although not something i would want to do given we have one that potentially works, is the fitment similar to another brand that is listed?
So, in all, i just really want to know which type of products my time and money is best invested within to get the absolute best detailing for a newbie from the inside out and get crazy water beading.
Also its not practical for me to take off the wheels from the car in order to clean them but was wondering what the best methods would be given the above restrictions and budget.
