Wow! This is looking mint. Perfect shine. Would you mind saying what detailing was undertaken and approximate cost.

I really want mine fully detailed when it arrives, but doubt I can stretch to a ceramic coating film. Probably just ask for a full detail job and Gtechniq or similar protection applied. Did you have to leave the car for more than a day?

Trouble is finding anywhere around Devon or Cornwall to do the work. I'm not keen on leaving it with anyone overnight.

Hi jj1;
1st car ive had detailed.
Interior Hoover
*Dashboard / Trims / Glass cleaned
*Leather / Fabric seats cleaned / conditioned / Protected
*Citrus Pre-Wash
*Snow Foam
*Full Safe Wash
*Wheels Deep Cleaned
*Paintwork De-Tarred
*Paintwork Metal contaminants Removed
*Paintwork Clay Barred
*Si02 Paint Primer applied by Machine Polisher
*2 Coats of Angelwax Enigma Ceramic Wax (Up to 12 months protection)
*Trims Dressed
*Wheels Nano Sealant applied
*Glass Front / Rear Nano Sealant applied
*Exhaust cleaned and Nano Sealant applied
*Engine Bay cleaned and dressed

Total cost £240. Dropped off at 8am picked up at 5pm.
Could have upgraded to ceramic wax (probably will next year) extra £100 but that takes 2 days.
Got mine done in Preston so probably a bit far for you ?

Looks fantastic, great job by your detailer. Thank you for sharing.

Both the immediate appearance, and more importantly, the ease of future cleaning and durability of finish make this a very attractive proposition.

Like you I'm going to be busy for the few weeks after collecting the vehicle so this will have to wait until June.

Looking for a decent detailer relatively local to me. Got treatment done on last car by the dealer which was a total waste of money. An outfit somewhere in Birmingham or Bristol would mean that wife and I could have a day out with a nice lunch or maybe two days with a hotel if going for a ceramic coating. Spending more by staying overnight would ironically smooth the waters over the cost of the treatment...

Haha - mine would agree :lol: . There must be a "tiguan owners other halfs" forum somewhere - where they work out what then can get out of us to balance these extras off

Thanks Dan. My R-Line White Tiguan will hopefully look as great as yours. I can't wait for it to arrive and in the meantime I need to find a detailer on Devon or Cornwall who can detail like yours in a day for under £300.
