Audi A6 3.0T Quattro S-Line - Klean Garage

Post by Le Clue »

Hi guys,

A friend of mine and a regular on the forum came to me after purchasing a stunning Audi A6 with all the nice options ticked for a little bit of a restoration!

Some before pictures:

Although very dirty and dusty with a type of red sand in every nook and cranny generally the car was in great condition with almost all sensitive areas covered in PPF. We started with removing the PPF which took about 4 hours in total, that was followed with decontamination and brush work in all the intricate areas.

The last of the wet work was to remove the wheels and clean them with the wheel arches and suspension/brake components:

Onto the interior work - this was very time consuming, in total 9 hours were spent on the interior alone.

Headliner cleaned with Carpro MultiX APC
Plastic areas cleaned with Carpro MultiX APC
Leather cleaned with Gyeon Leather Cleaner
Carpets treated with a mixture of APC and agitated with a drill brush and extracted
All plastics treated to 303Aerospace

Onto the paint correction process!

Typical Audi paint that is considered quite hard, they need a heavy cutting compound to get rid of major paint imperfections, so KochChemie and their H802 cutting compound and Rupes D-A polish compound turned out to be a great combo paired with Rupes Woolie Cutting pad and Rupes DA polishing pads.

We also managed to greatly improve 3 very bad scratches on the drivers side - reducing them by about 80%.

This was the condition after chemical and mechanical decontamination:

And on to the final product...

In total about 45 hours was spent transforming this Audi to a condition it deserves!

We laid down some ceramic coating in the form of CarPro CQuartz UK 3.0 for protection, I'll let the pictures do the talking:

When i spend 6 and more hours easily cleaning the MRS and to her it does not make sense that what is it that i doing for such a long time.

The results though speak for themselves.

Thanks Mr Unobeat!!

Yeah it's an amazing car and packed with amazing options.
The LED headlights are epic, Nightvision is cool and the Bose 14 speaker sound system is the best!

Car has plenty power, 0-100 is low 5 seconds and a mid 13 second quarter mile, all stock.

I do want a 7 seater again one day, that would be the only reason I would sell the A6. But I doubt I would find another car packed with this much amazing features.
