Detailer's Domain: Widebody Audi S4 Avant - Paint correction/PPF installation

. Monday, January 24, 2011

We've recently welcomed the auto detailing/car care gurus,, as quattroholic's latest sponsor. As such, you'll see some of their Audi-related projects featured on our pages from time to time. The first is this project, a RS4-look, widebody Audi S4 (B5) Avant. As you'll see after the jump, this S4 was the definition of swirl-marks and paint imperfections before the DD crew went to work. The result? Nothing short of spectacular.
