    Ok, with most recent posts here being fairly frustrating ones around warranty and brake squeal issues across the last month or so, I have finally got round to posting some pictures of my recent detail done at the end of November.

    Before I start I would just like to say the car was fully prepped, prepared and delivered to the highest standard by Robert at Incredible Detail. I had previously had Robert recommended from this forum when I had my Ibis S3 SB BE and on the solid paint I found the results superb so when the RS3 came in Phantom with the usual light factory swirls and paint defects I decide to go for a full enhancement detail, which machine polishes out most of the imperfections - certainly to a standard that is way above what my naked eye can pick up. It was an 8am to 8pm job and finish.

    Anyway I hope some of the pictures do the work justice and as I say if anyone is from Glasgow (or indeed Scotland) send me a PM and I will happy pass on Robert's contacts.

    The url below shows an update from Roberts posts on the detailers forum - some other nice vehicles also in the same post - and then below are the finishing ones I took on my Panasonic Lumix.

    Here goes:

    Ok, that's enough for one evening - I hope they look good and do Robert justice?

    I must say since the detail I have given her two simple washes (from being pretty grubby) - doing the foam lance, double bucket, etc and she came back looking like absolute glass - thanks Robert.

    Funny think was, Robert did the job at my offices (underground car park) and brought all his own lighting, light gun, paint depth thingy, etc and some of the other colleagues thought he was the £15 quid mini valet guy and gave him a few laughs when they said...."are you the new guy, can you do mine?".......

    Happy New Year.

    The package i went for was a single stage machine polish (enhancement detail) upgrading to Zymol Vintage wax finish. This removed the very finest of swirl marks and enhanced the gloss of the paintwork.

    overall I was absolutely delighted and can't recommend Robert enough.
