A very good customer of ours picked up his new Subaru STI, at delivery he already noticed that it was in pretty bad shape, but he knew he was coming in for a new car prep and Opti Coat so all was well.

That being said I'm still surprised at how dealers just don't understand how to deliver a car. Why not train your crew to do it right?

Using the Flex XC3401 to get linear scratches off the wing and rear deck lid.
Using an Adam's Orange Pad and Adam's Paint Correcting Polish.



50/50 shots - left side before - right side after.


Surprising how dull the paint was on a brand new car.


Customer requested to debadge, since the car was new it was quite easy to remove. We used dental floss and remove the emblems. We removed the leftover adhesive with Auto Finesse Obiltarate. Ghosting was remove with the Rupes LHR12 and Sonax Perfect Finish.
