Default Scratch On Black Exterior

Hey Everyone!

I'm new to this forum and this thread buy I have a question and did not find the right page to post it.
I have a 4S with metallic black exterior and every 6 month I have it detailed and polished by local shop with very good reviews and service (www.aaaautospa.com) and they do a great job polishing and detailing the car but after 5 month I see marks coming back ,is there a reason behind this because I know the shop I took it to is very reliable but I was wondering if you guys had any issue like this before.


Thanks

Thanks Anthony, the C2 is looking good!

Technically you should post this in the detailing forum as you’ll get better responses but I’ll reply. Typically if swirls are coming back it’s either due to poor washing technique or the detail shop is using a glaze to hide the scratches instead of removing them. Typically it’s the former so I would look at your washing technique and buy some better products. I have the same paint on my Spyder and I have polished it once in 8.5 years and currently it barely shows a swirl on the paint, there’s a bit on the rear lid near the wing.

I’ll also suggest that you shouldn’t polish the paint every 6 months, before long you will have no more paint to work with and then your only option is respray. So definitely get the cleaning process under control.

Cool, A lot of nice cars and some very clean 914's. I can't believe we have been doing this for 7 years now. A lot of work to organize this and John works very hard it. Gets bigger every time.

Nice RS. I had a prime parking spot and was told they got some great photos of my car with the lake in the background they might use for a cover of P4US. That would make 3 in the last 2 years. Good to see everyone next time you do a PCA event let me know. I am at all the social since I run them LOL.
