    Audi TTS Enhancement Detail

    An enhancement detail on an Audi TTS which the owner had just bought but the dealer prep had been a little below the standard wanted by the owner.

    Products and equipment used

    Uber microfiber towels
    Chemical guy’s woolly mammoth drying towel
    3m yellow pads 150mm 75 mm
    3m black pads
    Halogen site lights
    Makita rotary polisher
    DA Polisher
    Carpro Fixer polish
    Scholl S17+
    Britemax Black Max
    Britemax Vantage wax
    3m masking tape
    Meguiars APC
    Costco microfibre towels
    Meguiars hyper dressing
    Valet pro citrus bling
    Valet Pro PH neutral Snowfoam
    Valet pro bilberry wheel cleaner
    Valet pro tyre dressing
    AMDetails AMbubbles
    Bilt Hamber clay bar
    Autosmart Tardis
    Various brushes
    Kranzle pressure washer
    Carpro Sheepskin wash mitt
    Carpro Dlux
    Noodle wash mitt
    Carpro Lambs wool wash mitt
    Poorboys microfibre clothes
    Uber buffing clothes
    Autobrite Snow foam gun
    Chemical guys Jetseal 109
    Autobrite Repel







    The car was then given its first coat of snow foam whilst this was dwelling I went round the car using APC in a foaming head bottle cleaning the fuel filler area and various gaps and grills. The snowfoam was then blasted off with the pressure washer, and then the car was given another coat of the same mix snowfoam and the car was washed using the 2 bucket method with grit guards in both buckets and a Carpro lambswool wash mitt.
    The car was then rinsed off using an open ended hose and I then went round the car with Tardis which was left to go to work before being wiped down with microfibre clothes. The car was then given a coat of Ironx again left to do its stuff before the car was washed down using the pressure washer.
    The car was clayed using citrus bling and water mix (10 to 1) and a Bilt hamber soft clay bar which helped to pull more contaminates from the paint work it was then rewashed using the same method and dried using the woolly mammoth.

    I then taped the car up and went round with various yellow 3m pads and Scholl S17+ polish, each panel was given a wipe down with Carpro eraser after polishing to check finish and remove any polishing oils.
    I then went round the car a using the DA and Britemax blackmax on a black 3m pad which was buffed using Uber buffing towels.

    The car was given 2 coats of the Britemax Vantage wax leaving wax to bond for 30min and approx 60min between each coat again buffed using Uber buffing towels

    The plastic trim was dressed using Carpro Dlux which is a cracking product which a little goes a long way and gives a stunning finish.
    After this I cleaned the glass and gave them all 2 coats of Autobrite repel

    The alloys were sealed using 2 coats of Chemical guys Jetseal 109 and dressed the tyres using the Valet pro tyre dressing.

    Vantage Wax and beading
