Yeah I went back and forth between using the black or white one but decided on black because It is more subtle but also reps the site.

Hi

Have the same colour srt as you

Have a couple of questions about the ceramic pro as I'm going to get that done as well.

Paintwork - what are your thoughts on the end result? Did you get extra layers done ? What prep did your detailer do on the paint before applying the stuff?

Interior - any visual changes or smells from the treatments ? Was it just the leather treatment? What did you do about the suede bits?

Cost and time. - how long did it take to do the whole lot and what did it cost?

Thanks heaps

vvM1LESvv is a name known to all
He had the car for a couple of days, I only got the one layer, but I think I might take it back in for a couple more coats in six to eight months, I'll see how it goes.

The interior smells fine, just like a brand new car I guess, I couldn't notice any different smells. I was away while it was getting done and didn't quiz him to much on what exactly he does, I let his website and Facebook page do the talking, it looks like he is pretty experienced, he actually had to work Christmas Day to get me my ride back ready for when I flew in. If your in Brisbane the business is Auto Glamour.

The detailer recommended just one coat as I don't use it as a daily driver as I'm only home 1 week out of every 4. He said u can layer it up to 5 times but that's more for "wank factor", His words.. But I think 3 would be good, water beads off the paintwork like its been waxed.



For exterior and interiors, rims and calipers ran about a g. I paid a bit extra for debadging, rebadging. Extra coats would be additional cost also.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Installed the SRT badge from phillysrt. I moved it a little more to the right by drilling a hole in the plastic grill area. I think it looks better that way. You don't have to take off the bumper to install this, just the bottom black under tray that is our brake cooling ducts.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Agree with the placement. Matches the placement and spacing on the rear liftgate. Well done. I think I'll be doing the same.

I had the SRT washed today at the local mall while I was shopping. Came back and saw some guy with a BMW 335 walking around the SRT checking it out. He asked me in disbelief if it actually had a 6.4L V8 in it as per the decals. I'm like "...yeah, it's a sledgehammer" He responds "...awesome, what do you need all that for?". I simply smiled, wished him a Happy New Year, hopped in the car and drove off.

People shouldn't ask questions they already know the answers to.

I was washing mine late Saturday and got that.... Someone is watching you feeling a guy and his lady in an avalanche were watching... I just kept drying and they said they had a 2007 and it was just like mine... I said. Well not quite this is a 14... Feel free to check it out. They said wow looks great and were jealous

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Had a guy that parked in front of me at Dillards take pics of mine. Said he'd never seen on in person. He drove a SRT caliber. Said he had done some stuff to it and had 400 hp but couldn't go anywhere from a low speed due to tire spin, front wheel drive. He said his buddy was going to die when he saw the pics. I didn't ask.
