Looks great, how much did it cost?

Sorry, missed this reply. The detailer was doing a lockdown special, so I only paid £327. I think it would normally be more than £400, depending on the condition of the paintwork and how much machine polishing was necassery before applying the ceramic coat.

To complement the exterior protection, I also treated the fabric interior with GTechniq Smart Fabric to stop the kids sticky fingers from wrecking it:

Still loving it. Now it's properly run in the exhaust sounds even better and the performance v's comfort is absolutely ideal for my needs. Just such a capable car.

My only gripe (apart from the odd rattle) is the quality of the sound system. Debating whether to drop £500 on the helix upgrade:

It certainly gets good reviews and is a neat solution without getting in to changing speakers or having to pull apart too much of the trim.

That colour is so lovely. Always notice a GTI in that blue.  :cool:

How much of the Gtechniq fabric stuff did you use for the whole interior? It looks like a really good product from reading online but it's unclear how big a bottle is needed.

You might just be able to get away with 250ml, but I’d advise 500ml, especially if you want to treat the matts or any areas of carpet as well as the upholstery.
