... need protection. Not only that, but they also often require a high level of refinement to rectify common 'new car' issues - such as sanding marks, swirls, and rotary holograms in the paint that take away from that "new vehicle pop" that they should have.
This owner opted for CQuartz Finest Reserve ceramic coating. This ultra-exclusive, ultra-durable ceramic protection adds incredible gloss and shine to the vehicle while providing strong chemical and abrasion protection that can last years.
When perfection is the minimum requirement, choose Unleashed Auto Care with CQuartz Finest Reserve.
One of the most important parts of any detail is understanding what we are working with; all the small details matter. Prior to commencing any work, we thoroughly inspected and documented this Audi S4 with both written notes and hundreds of photographs in order to genuinely understand its unique needs.
Our inspection resulted in a few key findings that would affect how we approach the restorative portion of the detail. Some of these findings included:
Sanding Marks - (unfortunately) found on many new vehicles, this Jaguar had sanding marks littered across it. These marks leave unattractive 'grey' spots in the paint, including swirls and scratches.
Holograms - The result of previous polishing attempts gone wrong, we see far too many vehicles in our facility that have fallen to bad polishing practices resulting in 'holograms', which are micro-swirls. This Jaguar had them in a few dozen large areas.
General Damage - Swirls, scratches, and other damage was noted during the inspection. The passenger pillar had significant damage we would later rectify.
Our documentation is thorough, as it should be. We complete both analog and digital inspection forms, take hundreds of photos, and compile this information into a 6+ page document that will be provided to the owner of the vehicle after the service.
The wash is followed by chemically decontaminating the paint - this safe method allows us to strip away tar, environmental fallout, and other contamination, which we followup with a claybar process where required to rid the vehicle of any remaining embedded grime.
By following this strict process, we know that the vehicle is perfectly clean before restoring the paint and removing the previously-found sanding marks, swirls and scratches.
The key to attaining incredible gloss and shine starts with properly and thoroughly cleansing the vehicle of dirt, grime, and contamination. This ensures that our paint polishing services won't further damage the paint.
Our first step includes our famous Essentials Wash process, which includes fully foaming the vehicle down before washing the paintwork safely and methodically.
REFINEMENT, AT IT'S FINEST.
Whether it be new paint or old - making a surface "extra glossy" can only be achieved through paint polishing - the process of methodically removing swirls, scratches, and other paint defects that mask hidden gloss, shine, and paint depth. Our paint correction process includes utilizing the latest in innovative technology and our own proven techniques to refine the surface to the glossiest possible finish without sacrificing the integrity of the clear-coat like older technology can when in the wrong hands.
SWIRLS. SCRATCHES. SANDING MARKS, HOLOGRAMS. These were all found across this S4, and were refined from the surface(s) to reveal an incredible glossy, deep metallic finish. It's often shocking to our clients how much better we can even fresh paint look..
CQUARTZ FINEST RESERVE
CERAMIC COATING + SHORTWAVE IR CURING
Every component of our Finest Reserve service must be followed strictly. The owner of this custom Jaguar desired nothing but the best to protect his brand new vehicle - as such, CQuartz Finest Reserve was the only choice.
The entire vehicle was fully coated to provide YEARS of easy washing, incredible gloss and shine, and unparalleled protection that can last many years.

Paint, including full door jams
Black trim - including every single vent, plastic inlets, and the entire front grill
Exposed metal components
All paint protection film/clear bra
Once coated, the entire vehicle underwent a curing process using out state-of-the-art Infratech Shortwave Infrared lamps. This ensures the coating is fully - and thoroughly - cured. Added durability, performance, and protective characteristics are a result from this.
Plus, it looks fantastic.
