    Took the plunge and drove my car upto Matt's place in Bootle this morning for a full paint correction and Zymol detail, along with interiour valet.
    All I can say I knew I had made the right decision when I saw what cars were in his unit, 993 Turbo with GT2 bodykit, RS500, and 2 TVR's. Lovely.
    Matt knows his stuff, and spent a while with me and the S4 walking round it with a 3M sun gun. I never relaises just how bad the paint was, until now.
    All in all im looking at around £600, but sod it I say!
    Pics will be available soon as Matt has finished, he's promised to photograph the events for me, which I will post soon as!
    Downside? The courtesy car, a MGZT190, painfully slow, heavy, big, ugly, nasty.
    Roll on Friday, pick up one pimped S4! :hubbahubba:

    Can't wait to see the pictures, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results.

    MGZT190, in other words, a Rover 75? Well, hmm, cough, ahem.

    The MG was to say the least a let down, and is a fancy Rover lol! 2.5 V6, 190bhp, I was expecting a bit of poke at least! Pics will be up Saturday, promise!!

    I thought you were selling up?

    What sort of price would you be looking at not including the interior?

    I did want to sell, but the S4 is like a fit bad behaved girlfriend! When you're away from it, you hate it, then soon as you're behind the wheel, ya love it and love the looks on peoples faces when you boot it hehe!
    Price without interiour is circa £500. Iwent the full hog as it will only be done once, so thought why not!

    Picked her up today, as I was late from work and couldnt do it Fri, have to say, I was blown away! Soon as I rolled in I saw her and couldnt believe the finish! The contrast of the black paint and shiny silver mirrors was breath taking.
    Matt really does know his stuff, and was money well spent!
    Just waiting from pics from me mate who took some, and once ive located me USB I will load mine up! Got some of the other cars that were in there aswell, a Gumball 993 Turbo with GT2 bodykit (600bhp), TVR Sagaris, and an original unmaked RS500!

    That is impressive !! I would so like to get that done to mine, but £600 OUCH.

    £300 is probably my limit, props to you tho. She looks 500%

    Car now dirty after a few runs up and down various M-ways and country lanes, gutted! Have got a wash program to follow soon as I do wash it, and never have to polish it again! Just have a hand glaze to mist on and buff off! Will have a crack at that thursday I think.
