    I'm new to the forums, so I wondered whether you professionally detail cars?

    Your A3 looks AMAZING, I've got an A3 S-line in red too and would love for it to be detailed like that.

    Beautiful! Where abouts are you located, I'm in Essex? And how much do you charge?

    I want my seats lifted to clean under there too, will get Rob (at Gleammachine Detailing - Welcome) to do this I think unless you do it??

    Damn mate you've a knack for detailing, the car looks stunning every time :D

    How much time did you spend on her? and what steps did you take if you don't mind me asking.
