Snake oil or not, I had the M5 done last week and it looks unbelievable for a car that’s just about 20 years old. Initially, the company I used, Elite Detailing in Wellington, wondered why I’d brought it to them because it already looked reasonably good. I wanted paint correction on some of the clear coat scratches an un-named dealership created when they changed my windscreen last year and so in addition I decided to give their coating a go.
I’m so impressed. Obviously different colours would have different results in terms of that deep glossy look.
If it lasts the 4/5 years they claim, and I’m sure it will as the car is not a daily, then it’s money well spent. The team were very professional, knowledgeable and set the proper expectations about the product they use.
Yes it can scratch, yes you can still chip it however I was more than happy to give them my money for their time. It’s really good to see some of their other work and see their passion for detailing.
I have a light scratch on the passenger side door of the Porsche that doesn’t quite polish out, I want to avoid painting and after seeing the amazing work Elite did on the M5, I’m happy to hand it over and get them to apply the coating too. It will be good to see how it lasts on a daily.
