    I got myself a Audi A3 2.0Tdi Black Edition at the start of September so I got the car detailed yesterday by a friend when I was at work, been so busy that Ive not been able to give it a good clean since I got it at the start of september so thought it deserved something special, anyway here is his write up:


    "Was asked by a friend of a friend well more work colleague at the local refinery to tidy up his new car he got in September this year.


    Few before's

    Wheels were scrubbed with Smart wheels

    It was washed with Britemax shampoo, clayed, detarred and 2 layers of Collonite 845 on the bodywork, Nanolex glass sealant on the glass, Britemax metal twins on the exhaust and 1z vinyl gel on the trim.


    Interior was hoovered, glass cleaned with Maxolen glass cleaner (highly rate it), plastics were cleaned with G101 dressed with Maxolen Blue Star, leather cleaned with Furniture clinic leather cleaner then protected with Furniture Clinic protection cream.
