Gtechniq CS black Crystal serum

Post by Dave » Sun Apr 02, 2017 1:43 pm

I am getting Gtechniq CS black Crystal serum professionally applied to my Q2 next week. It will take 2 days about 13 hours of work.

The process will be.

Single stage polish

Paintwork deep cleaned and if required clayed followed by a single stage machine polish using ultra fine gloss enhancing polish.Paintwork wiped down using Gtechniq panel wipe to ensure coatings form a perfect bond with cars paintwork.

Will be using CS black Crystal Serum topped with EXO* for paint work.

Rims will be deep cleaned with Gtechniq W6 iron and general fallout remover. They are then degreased and then coated with Gtechniq C5 wheel armour.

Leather seats will be protected with Gtechniq L1 leather guard.

Windscreen and all exterior glass will be deep clean and polish with Gtechniq G6 perfect glass and Gtechniq G4 Nanotech glass polish. All glass is then coated Gtechniq G1 clear vision smart glass


Dash boards door cards & carpets will be treated Gtechniq C6 matte dash and Gtechniq I1 smart smart fabric

Ultra-durable coating on exhaust tips, callipers, engine bay plastics, headlights and tail lights.

I am looking forward to how the car will look after total treatment.

I am getting it done through a local detailer.

If you go to Gtechniq site http://gtechniq.com/service/

Click on detailing services and then service estimate you then choose what service you want.

Get your estimate and a local acccrededed detailer will get in touch.

Thanks Dave . I used their website and for me elite car care in Maidenhead and kds keltec in Kent are the closest dealers.
Prices from them are similar. Only issue is that they require car for 4 working days.

Not sure which dealer to choose

See if you can find any reviews of each business.

With the Gtechniq product it needs to cure as such before you drive it. So it will take a few days. But worth it in the long run if it keeps the paintwork protected.
And if you have it done through a accredited detailer then you get a 7 year guarantee.

Ok picked up the car. Is all i can say is wow. I did not think you could get better than new but yes you can. Andy has done a amazing job.
The paint work is now to the standard it should be. No more swirl marks.
