    Hello guys,

    So today’s write up is of a gorgeous Phantom Black Audi RS4. This particular vehicle has had some very subtle mods Milltek exhaust and I believe it’s on its 3rd remap of tweaking. So with the stance and power sorted, all the customer needed was the paint work looking at. So we went for a 2 stage correction detail to remove the swirls and paying particular attention to some of the customers chosen areas.

    On arrival the usual Moray road grim due to our 4 seasons in one day weather.

    So after an initial vehicle rinse it was on to the wheels. With Acid free wheel cleaner and a 1” detailing brush. Megs and vikan brushes used for the inner wheel.

    Then a nice layering of foam and to tackle the door shuts.

    All this was then rinsed down. I think the good old Moray rain must have then come on from that overcast cloud as there is now only Paint work images on the SLR.
    The usual De Tarr with Tardis, De iron with Iron X and then clay bared with a mild Claybar.
    The majority of panels were tackled using 1-2 cycles of Scholl S17+ on 3M wool pads. Then after they were refined with S40 on 3M yellow pads. Bumpers and more intricate areas 3M Green 75mm and yellow 75mm pads were used.

    After all the machining it was then outside to clean again.

    I do like the De-Badged look its stealth. But once the new badges were put on it really does finish the vehicle.

    Once back inside the whole vehicle was blown dry and the first coat of wheel wax went on the lovely refurbed alloys.

    Then 2 coats of Synthetic paint sealant. Then off to bed!
    Next day was collection day and the sun actually came out!

    So out went the PHOAAAR for some pictures.

    Excellent work. How much would a correction like that cost?

    I’m afraid due to me not being a trader I don’t think I would be allowed to quote a cost to you.

    I would suggest Googling detailers in your area and a few quick emails or better still go to meet them so they can see your vehicle. Remember to choose wisely as it can be a large investment and each detailer is different. So find the one that suits YOUR needs.

    I'm sorry but you just can't beat a freshly machined polished black car, then add the arches of the RS4 :wub:

    Excellent work guys

    I can't help wondering ŵhy more owners don't fit front mud flaps to help protect the paint...was one of the first bits I added to my cab when I bought it.

    Love the work on the RS ... Amazing !
