2015 VW Golf R – New Car Detail

1080 607 Exclusive Car Care

The owner of this 2015 VW Golf R in lapiz blue was determined to protect his new purchase, so booked it in for a New Car Protection Treatment. An effective New Car Protection Treatment is ideally performed on a brand new zero mileage vehicle delivered direct from the supplying dealership to the detailing studio, where all that should be required is for the surfaces to be decontaminated, cleansed, lightly machine polished and the protective sealants or waxes applied.

It’s fairly commonplace however, for swirls and scratches to be introduced into the paintwork in the dealership’s attempt to make the car look shiny and presentable for the new owner. Most dealerships now offer paint protection packages using inexpensive products such as Autoglym Lifeshine and SupaGuard, unfortunately these dealership treatments are often applied by untrained franchised valeters on contaminated and unrefined paint, not exactly a recipe for success or longevity!

With the car thoroughly washed the paintwork was inspected under a 3M Sun Gun and LED Spot Lights which revealed the true extent of the paint defects present. Below are a sequence of before & after shots highlighting the defects and then showing the same area after our paint correction process was carried out.

Once all the machine polishing stages were complete the paintwork was given a final wipe down with Spies Hecker 7010 to remove any traces of silicone and polish residue. This ensures the surfaces are completely clean which will allow the paint protection to bond effectively. Client wanted long lasting protection which would be easy to maintain so Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer was used in this instance.

The windows were cleaned and then sealed using Gtechniq G1 ClearVision Smart Glass; a hydrophobic barrier which encourages rain water to bead and blow away when driving  in wet weather conditions. The wheels were removed from the vehicle and wiped down with Spies Hecker 7010 and then all surfaces werecoated with Gtechniq C5 Alloy Wheel Armour which provides a barrier against brake dust and road grime build up. The tyres were dressed with Gtechniq T1 .

And here is a few shots of the 2015 VW Golf R finished.
