Ok. So I know it’s not a Golf anymore but just wanted to show you my car now it’s been detailed and ceramic coated in case anyone needs convincing about getting a ceramic coating done 😎
All paint  given a decontamination wash and gloss enhancement then treated with a coat of Kamikaze Miyabi then another coat of Kamikaze Zipang for a deep glossy shine. Wheels removed and treated with Kamikaze Stance Rim. Brake callipers also treated with Stance Rim All exterior plastic trims given a coat of Gtechniq C4 and Glass with Gtechniq G1









Thanks

Looks amazing, who did it and how much may I ask?

I was thinking of a ceramic job myself.

Spent all day cleaning ,polishing,waxing etc

Used auto finesse products they worked well(were a gift). But not as good as some of my usual products.

Wanted to get it waxed having just been repaired at the body shop.

Pleased with the results but will look better when my new wheels arrive.

@Dave1rs; Looks great - Moonstone grey is my favourite colour for the mk8 GTI. What wheels are you getting to replace the standard alloys with?
2020 Polo GTI Plus; Pure White, DSG (because they all are)
Gone but not forgotten;
2016 Polo GTI; Blue Silk
2011 mk6 Golf GTD; Carbon Grey
2007 mk5 Golf GT (2.0 170bhp TDI version); Deep Black Pearl
2002  mk4 Golf GTI (the 150 bhp diesel version); Deep Black Pearl

@JB GTI; that’s one super shiny Mini. That colour will really ‘pop’ in the sunshine - looks great and you must be well pleased with the results.

I was thinking of a ceramic job myself.

Pristine Detailing in Loughborough I paid just over £800 and they had it for 4 days to allow sufficient time for curing between the ceramic coats on the paintwork plus all the other work.  I am really pleased with the results and happy to recommend them 👍👍👍
