Opti Coat Pro – Audi S3 Ara Blue & BMW 135i

Some recent work for a new Audi S3 Ara Blue & a BMW 135i. 2008 135i involved a huge turn around to revive the nine year old paint system and ensure long lasting protection. 

As part of the Opti Coat Pro service an inspection wash includes complimentary education session to cover how to maintain your coating. Microfibers, chemicals, tools, wash styles, any manner of car care is covered. 

Wheel faces, lenses, paint, and chrome were covered with a Optimum Opti Coat Pro. OCP comes with a 5 year warranty along with marring, scratch, and acid resistance. Click below for more photos and Facebook Albums going into the full process.

Audi R8 Phantom Black V10 Paint Correction

Multi day paint correction car detail for a beautiful Audi R8 Phantom Black V10. Huge amount of dealership wash swirls, towel marks, and incorrect buffing procedures on the paint. Some areas were easily corrected with Meguiars MF Finish Pad & M205 Polish, however a ton of random isolated deep scratches on the rear fenders, hood, and rear trunk lid area. Most sharp curvy areas such as the front slitter and rear splitter were done by hand with HD Express. Vehicle was close to perfect and was restored back to proper like new condition.

Enjoy the Facebook Album commentary, this was a fun project and one of the few black metallic paints I enjoy working on

Hyper Dressing, Optimum Protectant Plus for the rest of the vehicle. Check Facebook for our full depth commentary:
