Vehicle Enhancement: Audi A5 Black Coupe

Vehicle Enhancement: Audi A5 Black Coupe

VEHICLE INFORMATION:

A 2008 Audi A5 Black one step vehicle enhancement to improve the appearance. We did our best to address the 75K miles of swirls, carwash scratches, and overall lack of shine. We did a few extras such as extra coats of HD Poxy and Optiseal to maximize shine. Interior leather surfaces safely scrubbed and de-shined to restore the original surface. Addressed a few stains in the carpet with our vapor steamer. Hand polished the front black grill. Overall we ensured the vehicle surfaces were proper for the age.

Paint Enhancement: 2003 Boxster Lapis Blue

Paint Enhancement: 2003 Boxster Lapis Blue

VEHICLE INFORMATION:

One step paint enhancement to improve the appearance of this low mileage Boxster. Noted front bumper and rear bumper repaint. Huge polish/compound issues from the previous body shop which left a lot of work getting residue out of every gap and edge. Plenty of swirling on the top of all surfaces from a rotary. We stripped off the old silicone based dressing and ensured a proper finish.

This owner had previous issues with another detail shop that had burnt into the clearcoat, happy to say the end result was a great revival! Our next approach for this vehicle will be to deep clean the leather, carpet, and overall interior sanitization.
