Spent a couple days bringing this 900 mile "new" Golf R up to spec. It was pretty rough from the dealership's handling of the car. Lesson: Don't let the dealer wash your car or prep it before you pick it up. I brought Ryan in again to help me knock this one out as my schedule has been pretty packed. After the paint was corrected, Opti-Coat Pro was applied for the ultimate protection, guaranteed to last years, not months. Products used: Foamed with Dawn/CG Citrus Wash Washed with Dawn/CG Citrus Wash Sonax FE on wheels with Wheel Woolies and Swissvax Wheel Brush Clayed with Meguiars Final Inspection and Blackfire Poly Clay II Tires cleaned with Stoner's Tarminator Meguiars 101, D300, Menzerna 203 IPA wipedown Opti-Coat Pro Upon client drop off Typical of most German cars....HEAVY brake dust. Car only has 900 miles and inner wheel barrels are basically black. Very stubborn water spot etching on the grill. Took a few hours to remove fully. Not just water drips...Meguiars 101 was required to compound these marks off. Seen similar marks on numerous German cars lately. Documented pre-existing damage courtesy of the dealership's detailer/porter. The very soft B-pillars had been scrubbed with what looked like a brillo pad....these would take a while to correct. Heavy water spot etching on the glass as well. Swirled up tail lights.... After compounding, swirls gone. Final polishing will restore the gloss and will be carried out in the next step.
