    At the edge of luxury, performance, and family comes the Porsche Panamera 4S. The owner of this sweet German marque had owned this car for quite a while and decided that she finally needs a good detailing and coating for a long term protection. Check out what we find out.

    Typically a car of this grade has relatively good quality paint work but when its in Malaysian whether, all kinds of scenario can surface.

    We did our standard routine walk around to spot for obvious damages.
    [​IMG]
    Tar spots and many chips off at the side skirt area due to the large wheels spitting rocks here.
    [​IMG]
    Some rather permanent damages that is beyond detailing
    [​IMG]
    Due to a low quality taillight tint, it started to become hazy and stained.
    [​IMG]
    Some minor tar spot stains.
    [​IMG]
    Some light swirl damage.
    [​IMG]
    It is not very visible on some panels.
    [​IMG]
    Some are more visible.
    [​IMG]
    More swirl damage with some minor deeper scratches.

    We first did a detailed wash together with some clay bar treatment.
    [​IMG]
    After that we treated the tar spot stains.

    Observe as you see the tar dissolving.

    Now to handle the the paint restoration, here is a good example. Before.
    [​IMG]
    After.
    [​IMG]
    Another obvious Before.
    [​IMG]
    After paint restoration.
    [​IMG]
    After hours of non-stop detailing, we were able to achieve a near 90% swirl free finish.
    [​IMG]
    Some areas had white dots around the light as the paint is a solid white paint.
    [​IMG]
    Final check before we applied the Opti-Coat™Pro
    [​IMG]
    Since the car is not that new, we did a quick polish on the headlights to remove any oxidation.

    As for the wheels, it was rather clean. The detail was actually at the gigantic 6pot calipers.
    [​IMG]
    Usually neglected due to the tight areas and its rather hard to reach without proper tools.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    After spending much time cleaning the calipers.
    [​IMG]
    Even at the tight spots.
    [​IMG]
    Final finishing after Opti-Coat™Pro
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    As we finished up the coating application for the ride. the sun was setting and check out how sleek it looks at night!
