Well since I have had her 6 months I decided that it was about time I done a detail. The process was as follows;

Sprayed with Auto finesse citrus power
Rinsed
deironised using Wolf Chemicals WF 1P
Rinsed
Washed using TBM
Rinsed
De-tarred using tardis
Rinsed
washed again
Clayed using Meguiar's detailing clay bar (which was pointless as it removed nothing)
Rinsed
Washed again
Dried
Waxed using Collinite 476s
Exhaust tips cleaned using meguiars NXT metal polish

The inside was also given a going over including a treatment for the leather.

All in all it took 9 hours and ended up looking like this;















Overall I am happy with the paint as I have only got maybe 8 or 9 stone chips and zero scratches in 5200 miles :)

very nice. The black styling pack really makes it with that colour. Lovely.

Thanks. The black pack is a must really with Silver. Still the only silver S3 8v I have seen :(

Yer you don't see many silver S3's and it does look very good with the black pack. Not sure how it would look with the chrome, potentially too much silver.

Nice individual colour. Thought about chipex? Need to catch up having just covered 1300 miles since March!

Hey Dooker, I thought she was looking very clean when you passed me earlier. Looking real nice mate.
I was going to stop and say hello but needed to get home quickly, and also mine is dirty and yours would've shown mine up!! Hahaha

It is Ice Silver. Got it before they changed to floret so it will be even more rare now :)

Apologies, I like to think I know my colours haha.

Yer will be rarer now like Estoril, depending on if they come back into rotation.

Yeh some good pics with a proper camera would be good mate cheers, once I get my new wheels and give it a proper clean I'll give you a shout and we can arrange something.

Cheers mate.
