A New Car detail by LuxDetailing will leave a vehicle looking better than new. Between leaving the factory and delivery to the customer, vehicles are likely to have passed through many pairs of hands at distribution centres, during transportation and in dealerships.

It’s also very likely that a quick wash and brush up will have sufficed to leave that gleaming shine in the showroom – often, unknowingly executed by an inexperienced detailer, using poor wash and drying techniques with inappropriate use of machine polishers leaving fine scratches and surface marring.

Typically when a vehicle leaves the factory, it will have little or no protection for the clear top coat applied to the paint – it is, in effect, naked – therefore, to protect and preserve, it is essential to apply a ceramic coating to the paintwork. Any protection which is dealer applied is likely to have been done outside of a Detailing Studio, over un-prepped paintwork, sealing in the imperfections and contaminants.

LuxDetailing achieve this by a total decontamination process starting firstly with a complete wash of the vehicle with a pH-neutral shampoo and a non-acidic chemical decontamination, which is then clayed to remove any final minor residue. A further preparation process is followed by refining any fine scratches and swirl marks which are gradually polished out using the correct techniques and compounds. The pristine paint surface is then ready to adhere with premium LuxDetailing accredited GYEON® or Kamikaze ceramic coatings. A variety of products are used, tailored to the exacting needs of the client and vehicle.

This leaves the vehicle not only looking better than when it left the factory, but also protected from the effects of ultraviolet light, debris, and environmental contaminants. With exceptional durability and hydrophobic properties against water and road grime, it will be much easier to clean, too.

In addition to the exterior paintwork, the wheels, glass, any metal surfaces, interior plastics and leathers are all cleaned with the correct techniques and protected with products sympathetic to the requirements of the individual vehicle.
