    Ive had my S3 since the end of 2012, and i loved it to bits to drive, but the paintwork was really annoying me.
    I knew when i bought it it wasnt perfect but for the miles etc it was a good price so i factored in the price of a full paint correction and have been waiting for the nice weather to come so i could send it away to be done.
    Of course this is England and the good weather never comes, right? So i got it booked in and now i am made up with the car, the paintwork is like glass, not a swirl mark or buffer trail in sight :D
    Next up....coilovers.


    If you want to look at the pictures from throughout the process, including some before and afters, they can be found here. Audi S3 Photos by AutoDetox | Photobucket

    Otherwise, here are some of the finished article.

    STUNNING! I have a theory that Sprint Blue suits the early 8P S3s a bit better than the later ones. I'm lucky to have a brand new S£ BE but my oh my, these pictures just ram home how gorgeous Sprint Blue is! Where are these guys?

    Thanks everyone, I am really happy with it.
    Unfortunatly the garage is not mine it is the unit where I had the work done.
    If anyone is interested I had it done by Barry at Auto Detox in Rugeley, Staffordshire, I'd deffinatly recommend him :)

    How much did the full paint correction set you back, if you don't mind me asking?

    Nice! I didn't know paint correction also meant detail. I was thinking your cars paint had like faded in some areas.

    Paint is a lovely colour, can't wait for the weather to warm up so that I can give mine a thorough clean and wax!
