The owner of this Panther Black Crystal Audi TTRS booked his new purchase in for a New Car Preparation & Protection Detail with Gtechniq Coatings & Paint Protection Film (PPF).
The usual wash and decontamination stages were carried out and once inside the studio, the paintwork was inspected under high-intensity lighting for blemishes. If found, these would require removal prior to the paint protection film and Gtechniq coatings being applied, otherwise, the defects would be permanently sealed beneath. The owner had instructed the supplying dealer not to wash the car in hopes it would prevent unnecessary swirls and scratches to the paintwork from the dealerships poor wash techniques, so all that was required on this occasion was a light polish to improve the gloss and clarity and bring out the best of the Panther Black Crystal paintwork before it was protected.
The customer had requested we remove the front and rear chrome badges so they could replaced with gloss black (unfortunately these were on back order so were fitted at a later date)
With the Panther Black Crystal paintwork highly polished it was then time to apply some PPF (paint protection film) to some areas of the Audi TTRS. The customer requested we protect the bonnet, bumper, head lights, front wings, side skirts, pillars, leading edge of roof and side mirrors with Xpel Ultimate Plus paint protection film to protect these vulnerable areas from stone chips and other minor abrasions. Xpel Ultimate Plus which is self healing along with having a innovative, low surface energy top coat which increases stain resistance and product longevity by limiting water and dirt accumulation on the film’s surface. Xpel Ultimate Plus is backed by a manufacturer’s ten-year warranty.
All patterns are computer cut in house using a Graphtec FC8600-160 cutting plotter.

The paintwork and paint protection film was then protected with Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra. Once cured Crystal Serum Ultra is virtually impervious to harsh wash chemicals, industrial and environmental fallout. Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra is only valuable through gtechniq accredited detailers and is backed by a manufacturers 9 year guarantee.
After Crystal Serum Ultra had cured EXO V3 was applied on top, this top layer sealant adds an extra level of slickness whilst increasing the hydrophobic properties of the final finish.
The wheels & brake calipers were coated with Gtechniq C5 Alloy Wheel Armour and all exterior glass was treated with G1 ClearVision Smart Glass. Interior was given a vacuum and wiped down along with treating the fabric upholstery with Gtechniq I1 Smart Fabric and the leather surfaces with Gtechniq L1 Leather Guard
