The Detailed Service

Gold

Our Gold correction detail package is our most popular package with owners of slightly older cars (3+ years), and it's also the highest-grade package we'd generally recommend if you still intend to use your car regularly on the road. Since darker coloured cars show imperfections more easily, this is also a great way to ensure the deepest, wettest look.  With the time available to us, we can often restore even a quite poorly maintained car to a showroom condition.  On cars in reasonably good order to begin with, we would improve it to 'better than showroom' standard!

The paintwork will benefit from a three-stage paint correction process, where even heavy imperfections will be rectified (within the limits of what's physically possible) and all swirl marks, bird dropping stains, etchings and minor/medium depth scratches will be eliminated. This is because we'll spend longer both on the agressive polishing stages (more thoroughly removing defects and imperfections), and on the refining stage (bringing up the gloss level to an even purer standard than on our lower packages).

In addition, your leather is cleaned, fed and conditioned, the engine will be cleaned and dressed and if your car has a soft top that will be cleaned and sealed too. Multiple layers of very high quality wax/sealant are applied for outstanding protection. With between 30-45hrs polishing, we would achieve 90-95% correction on most cars for an absolutely jaw-dropping standard of finish.
