Black Audi A3
This was one of our first Audi vehicles to have a Paint Correction and Ceramic Coating package.
The owners of this vehicle approached us for the job because this vehicle was brand new off the dealership with only a few hundred miles on it. They wanted it protected for years to come.
This vehicle will be a daily driver but no more than 12k miles per year so Paint Correction and a Ceramic Coating are the perfect matches for this type of use.
This was a mobile service in the customer's garage from very early in the morning till the late afternoon. The wash and cleaning phase of the job was very quick and easy due to the car being very new and not having traveled very far. After a short while, it was prepped and ready for the Paint Correction and Ceramic Coating.
Similarly, with Teslas, the Audi paint is extremely soft. All that was needed was a light polishing pad along with a light polishing compound to perform the Paint Correction. Being a fairly new vehicle and well taken care of, the Paint Correction was done in only a few passes with no swirls, trails or hazing left behind. After wiping off all residual polish, the only big step left was to apply the Ceramic Coating.
Now that the Paint Correction process is out of the way, we begin the Ceramic Coating step. The entire car was prepped with IGL Pre-coat to make sure there was absolutely nothing left on the paint. We gave the vehicle one coat of the base layer and two hours later gave it its topcoat. The Ceramic Coating process itself can be very time consuming if it is to be done correctly. A sedan this size can easily take 5+ hours from pre-coat to the final layer of the Ceramic Coating being wiped off. Any company able to do multiple layers of a Ceramic Coating in under 4 hours is either not waiting long enough between coats, not doing all the coats they say they are, or simply using inferior products.
After giving the owners the do's and don'ts of Ceramic Coatings, the car was ready for the photoshoot. Thanks to Paint Correction the car is now scratch free and has a mirror finish. They also have UV protection, heat protection, scratch resistance, anti-fouling, and much more thanks to the 4-year Ceramic Coating.
