    This poor S4 was booked in for our Stage1 Enhancement and Protection Detail as the New Owner felt the paint was in poor condition and in need some TLC. I must stress that all the defect's shown are from Previous Owner's . Paul the current owner (4 weeks) had spent a small fortune on servicing and new part's. So after a few phone call's a date was set for Project S4 TLC.. 9-7-2011

    Product's Used For Stage1 EPD
    VP SFC
    VP Tardis
    G101
    VP Bilberry
    Z-18 Clay & FP Clay.
    DDJ Clay Lube
    CG GW Shampoo
    LC CCS Yellow Pad (6"/4")
    LC CCS Orange Pad(6"/4")
    LC Black FF Pad.
    Menz FG S500 & 3M FCP
    Menz SF(P0106fa)
    3M Ultrafina
    PB BH Glaze
    CG BL Sealant
    PB WS
    FK #108
    AS Glass
    We Received the car in the Rain so we had no idea of what sort of condition the paint was in.

    Wash Stages. VP SFC & G101.

    Great job on that boys, luckily it stayed dry all the way home, paintwork still looks mint, so much better then it did. Will definitely be booking the A3 in with yourselves in the near future, and hopefully see you at AITP! Thanks again.

    I'm pleased Paul was happy with level of correction.. Any time you are ready just give us a Ring. A few of us are making our way up to AITP on the saturday and staying in a local hotel , roll up with us if you want to. PM me if you want the hotel details ( Premier Inn)

    Cheer's my man myself & Grant were happy with the results after only 10.5 hours (non-stop)

    Thanks Fran. The New owner said he will sort out the few problem's. The car then will be in A1 condition..

    Cheers Darren This S4 is the same colour Black as your's so it gives you some idea of what level of correction a Stage1 offers. yep the T shirt Rock's a few more will be needed soon.

    They were standard from the B7 onwards, the B6 S4 didn't have them.

    It's my parents car, I wish it was mine, but I'm too young (19!) I only know that the V8 badges weren't on the B6 as they used to have a cab version.

    Looks so much better, just a shame that the organisation our end wasn't good enough and PRD couldn't have had it for longer.

    Thank's again all for your support. Mark myself and Grant would love the opportunity to work on your B5 if given the Nod.

    These 4 picture are my Favorite, all the Black car's look stunning when clean and basking in the Sun..
