    Audi RS3 - Sprint Blue - New Car Enhancement Detail





    Hello Guys, Its another lovely Audi RS from me! This time it's a brand new Audi RS3 in Sprint Blue. A rare car indeed, I think I'm right in saying the only RS3 in the country in Sprint blue.


    The owner (who lives over 100 miles away from me) made the trip up for me to do the car the day he took delivery of it. He booked a hotel and stayed over for me to work on the car the following day.


    The car arrived to me late one afternoon, so I took a few before pics.


    By now the car had just over 100 miles on.





    The car had quite a lot of swirls about it, which was unbeknown to the owner or me…























    So, the job changed slightly, time was a factor, I had more on my plate than was expected so I started straight away that evening. I wanted to get the car washed and decontaminated that evening, then take the customer to the hotel. That way I could get cracking on working on removing those swirls straight away the following morning!


    I didn't take any photos of the wash procedure, I'm sure you've all seen snow foam, buckets and a wash mit before!


    Onto removing those swirls then!

    After





    Engine Bay dressed





    Now, a lot of the detail was completed without taking many pics.


    Here's a quick gloss over the main points of the detail…


    - Two Stage machine polish to swirled areas
    - LSP = Swissvax Crystal Rock wax - Two Coats
    - Seals done with Swissvax Seal Feed
    - Wheels sealed and tyres dressed with Swissvax Pneu
    - Exhaust polished and sealed
    - Windows Sealed
    - Interior Cleaned
    - Carpets treated
    - Leather protectant applied
    - Engine Bay dressed
    - Wheel arches cleaned (during wash stages) & Dressed


    There are probably bits I have forgotten to mention, but hey ho! Ill let the after photos do the talking!

    Great result, although she was hardly a mess to start with. It's a bit depressing that a car that's so new can have swirls on, dealers really are clueless.

    Excellent detail.

    Swirl marks on the piano trim looked awful!

    Excellent job and a lovely colour.

    Can I ask what you used on the piano black trims? My A4 has these and they are scratched like that.

    Top notch work, and if you squint it looks like the 3 door they should've made. Smashing colour, now with the shine it deserves.
