    I didn't get my PC from them because I thought I'd have to pay tax....bum!

    Looks like you've got a busy weekend ahead :-)

    I'm planning on giving my S3 a good seeing too tomorrow. Used it on my girlfriends heavily swirled FTO a couple of weeks ago...spend around 6 hours on it and it looks great. Planning around 10 hours on the S3.

    Did you get some of those small spot foam pads? Do you need a smaller counter weight for the PC head?

    oh yeh...I got my tranny, plug and cable from www.tooledup.co.uk much cheaper than Machine Mart. Mind you if you can't wait, MM may be the better option.

    Yeah I had my a4 detailed in feb but since then (even though im very careful when washing car) a few scratches have appeared so will be practising on my own car over weekend, but apart from removing swirls its great for putting and buffing polish

    Pav I may take you up on that offer sometime soon, mine looks like it has been washed with a Brillo pad. I will make it worth your while mind.

    I'll be getting my hands on some mezerna PO85RD3.02 as that worked excellent on my audi when I got it detailed back in feb (works well on vag paint) then follow up by using Menzerna Final Finish PO85RD to refine the finish further.

    Hey Niknak Im just a beginner like you mate, but find the world of detailing fascinating. Im gonna have a chat with Steve (the detailer) and see if we can arrange a little training day in leeds for a select few. manchesters not far so you can come over. We'l probably learn loads more than venture on our own. Ive seen Steve detail two cars in full (mine and my bros audi cab) and its all been sinking in so I am pretty confident. Just need to buy a tranny, extn lead etc
