    Mate owed me a favour and offered to detail the A3 for me.

    How I left it:

    Outside was snowfoamed with Auto Finesse Avalanche, the detarred using tardis and claybarred.




    Exhaust was cleaned with APC then finished with Raceglaze Alutech

    Glass - 3M Glass Cleaner
    Trim - Autofinesse Revive


    Wheels were washed using Autofinesse Wheel Cleaner (bought as concentrate),
    then waxed with RimWax and tyres dressed with Dodo Juice Tyromania

    Interior leather was cleaned and conditioned with Autofinesse Products and trim was cleaned using Poorboys Natural look dressing

    Some of the marks on the paint:

    The car was the machined- any marks were gone over with Megiuars DA polisher Cleaner, and whole car was finished with Mezerna SF400

    Wow very impressive. I have lots of light scratches on mine like yours did so definitely needs machine polishing.

    Love the alloys and the bucket seats. Would love them on my Sportback.

    Where do you get the smaller number plates from like you've got? Did you buy them or cut them

    Yeah still haven't found anything worthy of replacing it (within budget, lol)
    Not really, retro fitted xenon's and headlight washers and updated the sat nav to 2012 spec.
    Got kw's waiting to go on.
    Sold the red interior when I got the buckets.
