    well as most of you know i now have an Audi A6....

    when i got it home the paintwork was very grubby... had lots of little imperfections in it... was covered in swirls... (The life of the car wash) the door shuts were minging, aswell as the boot shuts... the engine bay was dusty and the interior was abused.

    well over the last couple of weeks i have owned it i have made a start on getting it upto my standards... cleaning a few bits here and there... getting the pine leaves, pine cones and acorns out of every place they could possibly fit....

    also done a few subtle mods along the way... including

    Debadging the rear of the car
    Taking off the manky phone aerial
    Painting the manky calipers red
    Got rid of the manky orange indicator bulbs

    and so i started detailing this morning at 10am and have just finished.....

    i washed the car using the two bucket method
    hydobladed it
    leathered it
    took all 4 wheels off and cleaned them using Wonder Wheels
    polished the wheels and dressed the tyres
    cleaned the arches inside out and put the wheels back on
    clayed the whole car (fantastic stuff)
    then polished it with Autoglym super resin
    then waxed it with AG Ultra Gloss Protection
    cleaned the glass and all the black plastics
    hoovered and cleaned interior and doorshuts
    washed and dressed the engine bay

    heres the result:

    To this day the car I enjoyed driving the most and had the most fun in was my old cavalier.....sad but true. It was modified tweeked etc loved it. Was sad to see her go last year too. had a vectra disel for 3 weeks and got shot of - hated it, but jumped into the fire with a 2ltr cd vectra. It's so bland. I really need to get an A6.


    BTW I'd never seen a red A6 i liked (bar the RS doo dahs) but yours looks very tidy indeed. Might have to open up my eyes to red and black A6's now
