    Myself and Grant were asked to do a full detail on a member's Audi A3 2.0 TDI DSG S-line way back in August at AITP. The date was set for the halloween weekend.

    The owner was kind enough to let us have the car from Friday to Sunday. He asked us to remove dealer number plate surround's and also de-badge the tailgate, and fit he's new wheel's.

    Hi Guys,
    Many thanks for a brilliant job done on my A3 at the weekend! she is looking stunning and the finish is excellent. I was surprised that you did such a good job seeing as I only gave you the car on friday and i picked her up on sunday morning!!! I have all the guys in the office drooling over her and can not believe the finish seeing that they new what she was like before!! you might get a few calls to see if you might be interested in taking on some other jobs!! wont be audi's though!! Hope to see you both soon to buy you a few beers as an extra thank you.

    Next for me is the rolling road followed by maybe new suspension and exhaust system. !!

    See ya soon.

    Mick

    Mick many thank's for bringing the car down early friday so we could get a start. I'm glad you and Sam enjoyed your visit to Wales. I know from talking to you at AITP and on Friday you were a little nervous of people touching/working on you car. Myself and Grant were both pleased with the end result's and your reaction was more than enought of a thank you.
