Mobile Car Valeting in Street - 2006 Audi RS4 Avant

Postby Shine My Ride » Sun Aug 18, 2013 7:29 pm

Back to Street again, for the same customer as the Toyota RAV4

This time it was a 56-plate Audi RS4 Avant. Purchased a couple of weeks previously, he was a little disappointed how it looked and asked what could be done. It was agreed to carry out a Full Valet+, spending extra time on the exterior.

Forgot any interior pics....again...but here are some exterior befores. Slightly frustrating as they do not convey how dull it looked in the flesh.

Knowing that the exterior would be where most of the time was spent, I decided to get that done before the interior. So the usual wash and decontamination process etc etc etc. Bear in mind this was a valet, not a detail. After a test section with the DA, I went with an Orange Hex pad and Menzerna FG400 to remove the worst, and then a White Hex and Menzerna SF4000 to refine the areas.

So on with the same combo, then refining with Menz SF4000. The final job that day was a polish with Zaino Z5 Pro on a cotton applicator pad, left for 20 minutes to cure before buffing. While it was curing, I dressed the tyres with an online supplier Long Life Rubber Dressing. This was after the Zaino Z5:

Now I COULD have left the exterior there, but I felt I could give it more wow factor. When I arrived back in the morning, I went over it with Zaino Z6 Ultra Clean to enhance the gloss a bit more. I then proceeded with the interior, using an online supplier Carpet Shampoo Extra in the Goerge for the mats and carpets, wiping over the surfaces with an online supplier APC. The kick panels were dressed with Autosmart Pazzaz.

So back to the exterior, it was still dry, so it was chance to use some Zaino Z8 Grand Finale to really up the finish.

And then my usual side-by-side pics

He took me out in it :shock: what a turn of speed

Thanks Gary, am quite pleased with this one.

I did enjoy using the Zaino stuff.

The customer commented how the car 'looked alive, like a giant black slug'. It certainly doesn't drive like a slug!

Thanks Dennis, that means a lot. :oops:

He was very happy to be fair, he kept saying how 'alive' it looked.

I actually enjoyed it more than the F-Type too, strangely

Thanks Mark, that's very kind of you.

What amazed me was how it was quite happy trundling along through the town......until we got to the bypass :shock: It's a good acheivement by Audi to make a car that is happy to just burble along, and then even happier when you hit the loud pedal.

Thanks Craig.

I first used Zaino on a exhibition valeting gig for the new Renault Captur I did with a colleague in London. They looked great after Z5, but looked a lot better after Z8.

Smartdetail had a deal going on Zaino, so thought I would bite the bullet. I've had the stuff for a couple of weeks waiting for an ideal car to try them on, and along came this RS4
