ABC Detailing - New Matte Daytona Grey Audi RS6 Avant Protection Detail

Hi all, a few weeks ago I was called up by Audi Tetbury to carry out a new car protection detail on a brand new matte Daytona Grey Audi RS6 Avant!

The car had just about every option ticked, with a few listed below, resulting in a list price entering triple figures! :doublesho

£5k matte grey paint
Front and rear cameras
Full LED Headlights
Self-closing doors and tailgate
Carbon fibre everywhere
21" Diamond-cut wheels
Interior carbon fibre and entry lights
Performance exhaust system
Destricted to 189mph and 580bhp
And many more!

The main reason I was called in was for preparing the matte paint, which requires specialist products and care, so I opted for a full Swissvax protection.

A few before photos of the car; nothing too dirty.

Paintwork was first pre-soaked with Autofinesse Citrus Power to dissolve and lift dirt to remove risk of marring during hand wash.

Image

Wheels cleaned with AMDetails Wheels.

Image

Image

Image

The paintwork was cleaned with Swissvax Opaque which contains no gloss-enhancers - the last thing you want on matte paint!

Image

Image

The car was then rinsed off and driven into the drying bay

Image

Image

The front-facing camera came in handy!

Image

Image

Dried using the Wooly Mammoth Towel and The Microfibre Madness Dry Me Crazy

Image

Compressed air was used to dry the gloss black wheels, to avoid unnecessary scratches

Image

Rolled into the handover bay to complete the rest of the detail

Image

Image

Image

Paintwork cleansed with Swissvax Opaque Pre-Cleaner, which left a sterile, unaltered surface ready for wax protection. A few interior marks were cleaned up and delivery protection removed

Image

Windows wiped down and G1 applied as always

Image

Image

Wheels and metal waxed with the awesome Swissvax Autobahn

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Trims dressed with Swissvax Seal Feed

Image

Gloss black paintwork and carbon fibre was protected with Auto Finesse Illusion

Image

Image

Image

Image

Paintwork finally protected with Swissvax Opaque wax, again leaving an unaltered but protected surface

Image

Curing

Image

Leaving a great looking matte finish but still enhancing the subtle Daytona Grey metallic!

Image

A few small details were dealt with before rolling it out for photos in the sun!

The owner picked the car up today and was very happy with this absolute beast of a car! Here's what he had to say on Facebook -
Andy did a fantastic job on my RS6 today. Will be recommending you to the rest of Inchcape Audi network...
Thanks again.
