Concours Finish Detailed: Audi R8

Previous client who's M6 click here and M3 click here I detailed wanted me to detail his new toy. I fell in love with the custom painted wheels....really nice touch.

Decided on using Dodo Juice Supernatural as the lsp to compliment this beauty.

CR Spotless Deionized Water
Chemical Guys Citrus Wash & Gloss
P21S Total Auto Wash
P21S Gel Wheel Cleaner
Meguiars APC +


Chemical Guys Gray Clay
Optimum No Rinse QD as lube

Paint Correction
Makita 9227c
Orange Pad and Menz SIP
White Pad and Menz PO106FF
Black Pad and Menz P085rd


Prima Clarity Glass Cleaner
Black Wow
303 Aerospace Protectant
Meguiars Hyperdressing
Meguiars All Metal Polish on Exhaust Tips

5.5 hp Rigid Shop Vac
Meguiars Hyperdressing
303 Aerospace Protectant
Prima Nourish Leather Conditioner

Jetseal 109 on Wheels
Dodo Juice Supernatural


Pollen Stains

Good example of why you always need to blow dry the mirrors.....so you can prevent this from happening


Thought I show the ample cargo space in the front.

After washing, proceeded to clay entire car including windows, wheels, etc..

Car is clean and prepped for 50/50 shot of the hood. Taped over the edge of the clear bra to prevent fraying the edges while polishing.

50/50 of the hood

Notice the deeper red on the right vs the the unpolished left.

50/50 Rear Lid

50/50 Rear Quarter Panel

Exhaust Before

Exhaust After

Engine cleaned and dressed

Applied DoDo Juice Supernatural and pulled car out in the sun to wipedown to make sure I don't miss any spots


Love that carnauba glow

Remember the wheels before?

Here they are after clay and wax

Yes that is 220 MPH

Ready for Take Off!

Got to have an Engine Pic

I love this car, and the before/after of the red is incredible! I never thought of red for this car until now, but I love it.

Thanks for all the compliments guys. It was a pleasure detailing this car. Too bad I was pressed for time or else i would have asked for a ride.
