  16. Hello, this superb 2014 Porsche Cayman S was booked in for a thorough wash down and some awesome protection for the winter months. First up a massive wash down and decontamination process was carried out as the black Porsche looked more brown in colour due to a trip out to the countryside! Auto Finesse and Chemical Guys products were used for the wash down process (which is in the HD video below) and the might Kamikaze Infinity wax for the paintwork was used to withstand the winter elements. Sonax NPT was applied to plastic trim parts with Gtechniq Exo applied to the wheels, calipers, exhaust pipes and outer glass. The interior carpets were wet vacced, then vacuumed throughout.

  17. Hello all! This Audi A1 booked in for a simple winter protection detail. No machine polishing - although it very much needed some serious TLC even after 2000 miles! Protected with Gtechniq Exo, Sonax NPT for the wheels, Gtechniq for glass, Clearcoat Tufshine for tyres, vacuumed and tidied throughout with Chemical Guys and Auto Finesse products. As usual a HD video and a few pictures are below. Some serious defects on this car - was itching to get the machine out but unfortunately the budget didn't stretch to this which is a shame. One example of the defects... Some after shots. Many thanks for looking.
  18. Hello again! This brand new Audi TTS in nano grey was booked in advance of collection (been on the road less than a week)! for a new car detail and lashing of Gtechniq for the winter months ahead. I'm a big fan of all the TT's, and was keen to get stuck into this one especially with all the new tech these have. Minor correction carried out from dealership inflicted swirls, scratches with Gtechniq Exo applied to basically everything! Defects weren't too grim but still not nice to see on a brand new TT! Interior vacuumed throughout, Chemical Guys Inner Clean for dash/panels and Auto Finesse Crystal for the inner glass. Wheels sealed with Exo, tyres sealed with Tufshine Clearcoat. As usual I have made a HD video showing the work involved and the cool new interface, as well as pictures below - check it out compared to the original 8N Audi TT! How things evolve over time eh? Many thanks for looking! HD Video. Pictures. All cars are wrapped overnight so no dust settles on the freshly polished paintwork. Original Vs New.
  19. Hi all, following on with the Porsche theme, this great looking 1980 911 SC Targa was booked in for an enhancement detail and some decent protection as it will be used in the winter months. Rupes and Scholl products for the enhancement process, Gtechniq Exo for paintwork, C2V3 for glass and Sonax NPT for trim, vinyl targa top, and wheels. Tyres sealed with Tufshine clearcoat.

As usual a full HD video was made to highlight the processes and gives a better idea of the finish that can be obtained from just an enhancement detail option. Pictures are also below. Many thanks for looking :car:
  20. Hello all! This Porsche 3.8 997 Carrera 2S was brought in to Offset Detailing, the Auto Finesse approved award winning car detailing service in Essex to rectify some bad swirl marks and take out a lot of defects. This car needed some of the best protection available for the paintwork so I recommended the Kamikaze Collection to the owner. After much pondering we decided on the Kamikaze Miyabi glass coating for the flrst layer of protection with Kamikaze Infinity Wax which is a combination of glass coating and carnauba on top of the Miyabi after it cured overnight. A great combination! Paintwork was first hit with Rupes and Scholl products to rid as many defects as possible. The engine bay was carefully cleaned and protected with Aerospace 303 as was the rubber underneath the rear spoiler. Wheels and calipers were sealed with Gtechniq Exo and tyres were thoroughly cleaned and sealed with Tuf Shine Clearcoat - an awesome product. Glass was protected with Gtechniq Exo too. The interior vacuumed throughout with Chemical Guys Inner Clean for dash/panels and Auto Finesse Crystal for the inside glass. This was quite an intensive detail and the Kamikaze coatings will be making their appearance on details in the near future. They give a superb glassy look to the paintwork and up to a couple of years protection when looked after properly. As usual, a full HD video and pictures are below highlighting the full process involved. Many thanks for viewing!
  21. After the M5 was collected from Offset Detailing Essex, this incredible new BMW M4 took it's place for a similar detail and lashings of Gtechniq Exo coatings all around the car. The usual wash and decontamination was carried out with a two stage machine polishing process and then coated with lots of Gtechniq Exo. Not too many defects, light scratches, etching and swirl marks were evident around the car but nothing too grim. The wheels were removed, Gtechniq used to seal inside the inner and outer rims, the monster M calipers were also cleaned and sealed as well as the inner arches. The interior was fully vacuumed throughout, Chemical Guys Inner Clean used on the dash and panels, Auto Finesse Crystal for the inner glass and Zaino Z6 used to help gloss up the interior carbon fibre. Engine bay was carefully cleaned and treated with Aerospace 303. Also lurking under the hood was a superb full carbon fibre strut brace - this was coated in Gtechniq Exo. Paintwork and glass were treated with lashings of Gtechniq Exo. When Exo has fully cured the paintwork will also get a spritz of Gtechniq C2V3. I'll let the video do the talking - this is one hell of a car and one of my most enjoyable details to date! A beauty and a killer finish! Video highlighting all the work involved. (currently being uploaded to youtube). Pics. Carbon fibre roof also got the full works. Wheels off and sealed inside and out, calipers too. Me at work! Many thanks for looking.
  22. Carrying on with the BMW theme this week at Offset Detailing Essex, I had this awesome BMW E60 M5 booked in. Running 507bhp (which is more than enough), this was booked in for quite an intensive detail ready for the winter months ahead. A full wash down using Auto Finesse and Chemical Guys products was first on the list, and getting the engine bay back to my kind of finish - mint! After the bay was clean, this was protected with Aerospace 303. Next on the list, the M5 was hit with the popular two stage machine polishing process and then paintwork sealed with Gtechniq Exo, as was the glass for durability through the grotty weather. Three of the four wheels were taken off for wheel refurbishment due to kurbing which is also available on site. While the car was on stands machine polishing continued, no time to stop! Once refurbed and back on the M5 they were sealed with Gtechniq with the correct manufacturer torque settings and air pressures taken care of. The leather interior was conditioned with Gliptone products, fully vacuumed throughout, with Auto Finesse Crystal applied to the inner glass and Chemical Guys Inner Clean for the dash and panels. Tyres and inner arches were then dressed, and all ready for collection! As usual, a full video highlighting the process and images are below. :buffer: Many thanks for looking!
  23. This 2005 Porsche Boxster was booked in at Offset Detailing Essex to have it's fabric roof redyed and protected with Renovo products. The paintwork received a thorough wash down and decontamination using Chemical Guys and Auto Finesse products. Once clayed and dried, the Porsche was brought in and the fabric roof was vacuumed to help aid drying. Renovo products were used for the redye and sealant process. Multiple coats were applied to achieve a dark rich finish to the fabric. A scuff was removed from the front bumper from a recent car park incident and paintwork protection consisted of Dodo Juice Supernatural Hybrid wax - two coats being applied a day apart and a spritz of Zaino Z6 for further gloss once cured. The wheels, calipers, trim and exterior glass were sealed with Sonax NPT. Two coats were applied. The interior was vacuumed throughout, with Chemical Guys Inner Clean applied to the dash and panels, with Auto Finesse Crystal for inner glass. Tyres and inner arches dressed. The video shows the work involved, and the finished product, as well as some pictures below. Many thanks for looking!
  24. Remember the brand new RS6 I detailed a while back (here) , well the owner was back, this time with his better half's Audi A1. This was going up for sale and even though it was extremely tidy and well looked after, you can't beat a bit of machine polishing to bring out the best in the paintwork! I've started to play around with videos recently, I'm not at the pro level yet hahaha, but with detailing I think video gives you that little bit extra, so I thought you might like to see a quick 30 second edit of the A1 all singing and dancing as well as a few stills as I worked my way around the car. Corrected with Rupes and Scholl products, finished with Auto Finesse Spirit wax. Windows, wheels and trim sealed with Sonax NPT. Tyres and inner arches dressed. Interior vacuumed throughout, Auto Finesse Crystal for the inside glass and Chemical Guys Inner Clean for the panels and dash. Video. https://youtu.be/AbQY2kN1n5A Many thanks for looking!
