UltimateShine - Audi S5
Hey Guys,

Another week come and gone and another Day spent Detailing a really awsome looking car. For me this is one of Audi's best creations. The stance and look of this car is unreal. 4.2 litre V8... sounds unreal.
Black and really for me one of the sexiest cars on the road.

So on my arrival i was greeted with a stunning car but shame this poor thing was subjected to torture at the hands of someone who has no clue how to Buff / polis a car. basically whoever touched this car with a rotary should be given another job to do. How could someone give a car back to a customer in this state???? And on such an expensive car like this? hell man.

Anyway I spent a good part of Saturday on the car and I was pretty pleased with the end result.

1. Washed the car with HyperWash and APC mix
2. Dried using the Chemical Guys Miracle Drying towel
3. Rims got APC with Daytona Wheel Brush
4. Tyres Scrubbed with APC.
5. Correction : Menzerna SIP - Lake Country orange cutting pad
Rotary Speed varied from 2 to 3.5
6. Polishing : Meguiars M205 - 3M Yellow Polishing pad
7. Sealant : Blackfire Wet Diamond All Paint protection
8. Tyres : Turtle Tyre Gel

And here are the pics of the work done

Once again the Blackfire Sealant just blew me away. This stuff really just takes the finish to another level.

Cheers and thanks for looking

Really nice work!

That hologramming was really bad, someone obviously attacked the poor car before you got there.

Very impressive as always bru, if that was my car I would have murdered the previous 'detailer'

Incredible Transformation. I bet the owner didn't recognize his ride! Rofl

btw what do you find better for polishing, the 3M Yellow Polishing pad or the LC white or the Megs one?

One additional question, what about the passes and speed combination for the correction stage?

Many thanks. Thumb
