Detailed a 2012 Audi S5

I had not used Sonax Full Effect in a while, and it's always fun to do on German cars. Lots of "bleeding". The paint was in good condition, but I did polish out the bonnet with FG400 as it did have some unsightly imperfections. For the LSP I used Swissvax Insignis v3.



Lots of pollen and dust


Typical dirty Audi wheels










And here goes the "bleeding"






This is just after rinsing it off with the hose. I still had to wash them by hand though.


Imperfections on the bonnet


Swissvax Insignis v3


Some afters...








Really nice interior! Cleaned this also with Swissvax products.

You brought out the big gun (Swissvax Insignis v3) for this job. Don't tell me you also have Crystal Rock locked up somewhere.

Damn, that's a gorgeous looking machine! If Audi makes the A4 in RWD form, I would kick BMW to the curb.

I got them all from Scandic Shine. All quite different waxes, but all of them spectacular. I'd rather have three of Insignis than one Crystal Rock.

I love Audi's ... so does my wife so she and I have agreed on a game plan to get me into an S4 in two years

Great work on the detail job.
