A couple of my XF this morning. I must say Sturgess have done a fantastic job.

Now if Sturgess were really clever they would have masked out a leaper on the roof before they waxed it.

I was really skeptical about the Sturgess detail...especially when I ran my fingers over the body work or when I tried to clean the car...The paint work just did't feel like it had been coated in wax or sealant...and for some reason it was difficult to clean...However the detail has proven to be very durable...although I have applied a coat of wax myself...I should add that having seen the detailer at work my skepticism was somewhat unjustified.

Ps..still cleaning my car in the rain...probably the best detailing tip I'v ever been given!!

Well so far it seems pretty good. Sometime over the next couple of weeks I will be stripping it back and redoing it myself though ready for winter.

I agree - I need to find time to do one BIG detail before the bad weather sets in :)

The bodywork seems to be prepped pretty well..I watched the guy at work and he had removed all the swirl marks on a used car prior to sale....looked brand new if I`am honest...So I personally wouldn't go the whole hog ie claying..although I`am sure others would disagree...I simply applied another couple of coats of wax and I might apply a final coat in the next few weeks if we get a decent weekend

When I went out to the car this morning I could see what Colinite does. I've washed it twice since applying it too.






May contain iPhone autocorrect spilling errors.
And isn't the Colinite easy to use? Thank you Charlie for pointing me in that direction. Need to order another tin now.
