    I cant wait to see the results, I think they will be using the Zymol Vintage on it so should be very shiny :D
    they will be doing inside and out.

    It will be about £340 and lasts up to 8 months. so much better than the Audi Superguard which costs all of £30 to buy and they charge over £300 for it. I know the Vintage is not cheap but no idea of the actual price per tub.

    £340 & lasts for 8months... that's good! Do you need to do any kind of maintaining?

    My car gets maintained by Clark and Rich with the vintage and i would never take it anywhere else they are masters and the car always looks amazing. Just make sure you follow the guidelines for maintaining the car afterwards otherwise you are wasting your money

    I will be picking it up later along with the products needed to maintain, I will ask for his advice for cleaning the best way. I know it will be the 2 bucket but from there we will see, Hope its not too dark so i can get some pics before i have to take it out on to the roads.

    Don't use a sponge either - wash mitt, also try and get an autobrite lance so you can snow foam the car :icon_thumright:

    One bucket with your car wash in.
    Another bucket with just water in and sometimes a grit guard in the bottom if you want.

    Wash the car but everytime you go for more water you rinse the wash mitt out in the plain water bucket (rub against grit guard if you have one) to clean the mitt off. Helps keep your washing water cleaner and your mitt gets the grit and dirt rinsed out of it.

    Basically helps to prevent the swirl marks you see on most cars due to grit and dirt in the sponges/wash mitts!

    I washed the other halfs car and my old one using the two bucket method for the first time yesterday and it does make a difference. Spent a bit at polishedbliss on the basic washing kit and basic wheel kit along with the leather cleaner and very glad I did to. The cars have come up very well.

    Should get to clean the A3 on Friday with any luck, so looking forward to the results.

    Thats the S3 just been picked up now, looked pretty good i rekon! Pics will be up either tonight or tomoro at some point hopefully.

    For those that were asking - the price was £340 (£240 for a new car detail + £100 surcharge for the Vintage wax) Inc. VAT.

    Usual full correction details are from £395.

    Vintage costs around £1800 per pot and depending on the annual mileage of the car you should see anything from 6-12 months genuine durability :)

    Clark
    Love your work
    You ever in Australia please give me a call:)
    One thing that annoys me with the A3 are the door window rubbers.
    They seem to dry out and end up with spots and patches on them.
    Car is an 07 yet the rubbers look terrible already.
    Zaino Tyre Gloss seems to work OK but they seem to need doing every second week (the Audi products don't even last a week)
    Are there any products you recommend?
    Also started using Poorboys polish which seems to do a good job.

    We apply Zymol Waxes to all the exterior rubbers and trim, this prevents them from drying out as you describe :)

    the white colour (ibis white for audi) and the new M5 also come in similar colour are amazing. i never thought white woud look soo good. defiately a consideration for future motors.
    a3simon your car looks fab!

    Is there a time limit to getting this done, Clark?
    Little point getting my D3 done straight away, but I may consider it around late April/May, when the winter ****'s off the road.

    Its best to do it soon as it is protection against the salt etc, then just a top up later on.
    even now it has a few days grime on it the shine is still there :)
