Regular customer, started off this S8 right over the summer having it polished and sealed. A few weeks ago, his neighbor decided to seal his fence even though my customer's garage door was open. Didn't bother to knock and let him know what was about to happen. Anyway, there was light over spray all over the car (going back tomorrow to take care of the other one, an Infiniti QX56) but it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Back end was the worst part since it was the closest to the fence. B pillars were pretty swirled up, but the paint looked really good still.

Yes it is! Beautiful car. Even the back-up camera is awesome!

I would expect so, but the owner didn't ask for a receipt. Maybe today when I take care of the QX. Just waiting on the fog to lift and it to warm up a touch more before heading over.

Thanks! 

 

BTW, today, when I took care of the QX56, he said he wanted to take the S8 out to the Texas Motorplex to see what it would run in the quarter mile. He also showed me his newest toy, a 50th anniversary 991 Porsche Carrera. That should be a in the near future detail.

Thanks, Thomas. Really like the Rupes. Not only does it cut faster than a regular DA but the finish is better too.

Yes, so far, really nice results on German paints.

Optimum's polishes work really well on Nissan paints.

Looks good Guys! Didn't think Audi could do anything to make the "S"s any better but they have! New rims and box like shape still remains and a killer body line and it still has the mean stance! Nice save! This weather blows!

 Yeah, those rims....they suck to clean. They basically turned 5 spoke wheels into 15 spoke wheels. But otherwise the car is awesome. This winter? Not so much. They better be right about the impending warm-up.

Thanks!
