Detailer's Domain: 2013 Audi S4 - New Car Prep and Opti Coat Applied

Subject: 2013 Audi S4

The customer called me 12 hours of delivery of his new car to make sure it was properly prepped and protected before he starts to put the miles on it. I love it when a customer wants to start his new car care the right way.

No kidding, I was thinking 'white cars look so good' and then that RS 4.0 showed up. The Audi's great, but let's see some shots of the Porsche, please.
