Swirl Removal on this 5 Cylinder Audi TT RS

Audi TT RS – Phantom Black – Correction Detail

06/09/2012

This well maintained Audi TTRS came in to AMDetails to have the defects removed left by the previous owner.

The customer knew a fair bit about detailing and had already carried out a protection detail on the vehicle a few months prior and kept the protection well maintained.

So a date was booked and the TTRS came in to AMDetails for 4 days Correctional work.
