Default Detailer's Domain: Porsche 911 CS - New Car Paint Correction

New Porsche 911 CS Correction.

I got a call from my customer telling me he just got a new 911 CS and asked me to take a look at it, I guess to my surprise I got a pretty swirled/hologram imperfect new 911! It always surprises me that dealers selling cars can do this, I feel its the dealers' job to present a perfectly prepped new car to a customer in fact they should do this for pre-owned cars as well.

Enough ranting, here is the write up.

What was done -
Exterior

- Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Paint inspected and measured
- Wheel Wells were cleaned and dressed
- Tires dressed
- Masking
- 3 Step Paint correction (Meguiars M105 with an Uber Yellow, Menzerna Super Intensive Polish with an Uber Green and Menzerna PO85RD with an Uber Blue)
- Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight
- Last Step - Menzerna Power Lock
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned
- Engine Cleaned up and dressed

Wow, that paint was hurting, especially for a new car. Beautiful job as always.

It really is amazing that you see most new cars coming off lots looking like what you are showing above. I do not let the dealer clean my car at all, ever...

The condition of the paint on that car, a NEW car, is appalling. Nice work and pics!

that car looks epically fantastic. I would be steamed if I paid that kind of money for a NEW car and it looked like that..... I would bill the dealership for the correction and not let them touch my car after that.

way to save that car!

I actually got into an argument with an employee at my dealership who thought detailing didn't matter when I pointed out the entire used lot had paint swirls for days. The one late 90s Mercedes they had was priced at 30K and you could barely tell it was black because of the swirls. A little bit of pride in what you do goes a looooooooong ways.

Wow, insane!! I need to get a buffer and sack up and use some cut compounds!

How much would a detailer charge for a service like that?
