    Lovely car, looks very similar to the s3 with those wheels in the s-line spec.

    You might want to have a word with that guy pissing on your red Vectra in the first picture though :no:

    Nice work. Obviously it's okay to spray all that foamy **** over the engine bay. :thumbsup:

    My thoughts too, but what kind of foamy **** is it? Won't it be harmfull to spray stuff on high pressure?

    Its 'snow foam' - a dilution of suds and warm water. The foam wasnt blasted at the engine, it was sprayed over it and the foam fell onto the engine. Agitated it with various brushes and rinsed off with water.

    The plastics were dressed using megs trim detailer and a microfibre cloth.:o.k:

    Thanks for the info Byron, I'll try to get my engine as clean as yours since dirt has found it's way into unreachable corners.

    Wish your gf the best with a great looking Audi.

    keen detailer there! i had to clay my car other day, still cant beleive how amazin that stuff is, what wax did you use, im currently using supernatural. did you put any sealant on, i got zaino z2 with zfx cure additive, that gives the best shine n finish!!

    great looking car also!!!

    I used (in order)

    - Dodo time to dry
    - Dodo lime prime (pre wax)
    - Dodo blue velvet hard wax
    - Dodo supernatural

    I didnt seal it after either, ran out of time and light although the Zaino Z2 gets good reviews - may purchase some.
