    Its been a while since we have done a write up, so i thought it about time we blew the cobwebs off the camera and got some shots of this Audi RS3 that cam in for a bit of a lift and protection with just 1000 miles on the clock it was not to bad but lacking clarity in the paintwork finish.

    On arrival:

    First job as always for us is the wheels, and given the condition they only called for a decent wash, on this occasion we opted to use Citrus Power and a selection of brushes and mitts:

    Foamed with a Mild TFR solution to remove old waxes and coatings:

    Whilst that was doing its thing we cleaned up the gaps, badges, grills and other hard to reach areas:

    Rinsed off and a drop of Lather popped in the wash bucket and we set about washing:

    That's what's I've been looking at. I live in Cardiff so I won't be popping in (haha), thinking of coming that way next year so it won't be until then. Massive fan of your products and have placed an order recently, think your brand is spot on!!
