I've just had the car in for some tlc, apparently washing with Brillo pads isn't good for the paint, I've been shown proper washing techniques now!!
The car was covered in swirl marks and light scratches.
Angelwax was the company I used for the detailing
As you can see from the pictures she's scrubbed up pretty well, the paintwork is now flawless

Did they mechanically polish the paint?

It might be good for others to know how much paint correction like that costs.

Car looks fantastic BTW.

Yes it was a single stage correction, it is machined
I personally got a discount from them but your looking at around £200-£350 depending on where you take it, cheers

That looks superb mate - LoL sounds like you've got an extra bucket and some grit guards on order.

Got mine going to Auto Detox in Feb for its two year spruce up.

Oops - I hope by showing your reg plate someone from Audi doesn't make a note of the obvious engine upgrade and cause you grief if ever you have to claim warranty work. I know, I'm paranoid but .... because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you.
Your looks ace though!

Not a hope in hell of any warranty work, pitfalls of tuning need to take it it on the chin when it hits the fan

Stock motor is handling the extra power and the dsg needed remapped too for higher clamping force to keep the extra torque at bay
