The Audi S3 Saloon Paint Enhancement Detail was completed today! Sepang Blue looks amazing after some machine polishing and an application of Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light. Is it better than the BMW M2's Long Beach Blue that we recently had with us? That is a tough one....
As with every detail the S3 was fully washed and completely decontaminated using fallout remover and a clay bar. This removes any embedded contaminants from the surface of the paintwork, alloy wheels and glass. A perfectly smooth finish is left behind allowing any form of protection applied to bond correctly to the lacquer.
The fine swirl marks and light scratches were then removed using the range of Koch Chemie polishes in combination with the Rupes polishing system. There was also some bird lime stains which needed to be tackled. Two stages of polishing were required to obtain the absolute best finish, which as you can see is very glossy and exaggerates the sparkle in the Sepang Blue Paint.
Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light, the latest ceramic coating from Gtechniq forms an ultra-durable, high-gloss, slick to the touch layer of 9h optically clear ceramic. It chemically bonds to the vehicle's paintwork to become the new surface layer which in turn offers superior resistance against scratching, UV damage and acidic substances. Gtechniq EXOv2 is an ultra durable hybrid coating that offers high levels of gloss, glass like reflections and excellent hydrophobic properties, therefore keeping the vehicle cleaner for longer.
The S3's paintwork now has guaranteed protection for 5 years as a result of applying these coatings.
The alloy wheels were coated with Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour offering 1 years protection.
