    Hi guys,
    I have been reading the forums about detailing here and looking at some of the cars they look AMAZING.
    I usually just take my cars down Tesco and give them a blast and if I have time a quick t-cut polish as never really been overly bothered about them, but I saw a A4 same colour as mine and the paint was like glass and mine looked like it's been cleaned with a scouring pad lol
    So I'm looking at getting mine sorted!
    As I've never attempted this I was wondering if anyone around the east Midlands would let me come and watch/have a go (under there supervision) and give me a few pointers and tips?
    Or if anyone could give my car a good session (I'd pay obviously) and let help out?
    I'm willing to travel but not 100s of miles
    Also the best products for beginners would be helpful
    Oh and my car is Mauritius blue don't know if that helps lol
    Cheers
    Guy's

    I hope that helps. I must admit I had no idea about detailing but I'm going to give it a try. Polish and wax for now and after the winter I might have a go at removeing the scratches! It took me months to find my car, had to have it in Mauritius blue.lol. It's got to be one of the best colours.

    Yeah I have a few light scratches on mine must be the colour lol.
    I'll send him a pm when I have a few minutes free.
    Think it will be a polish and wax also just give it a bit of protection for the winter months then like you I'll tackle the scratches in the spring
    Cheers again
