    Default Auto Obsessed New Car Prep and Xpel Stealth matte paint protection - 2015 Audi R8 V10

    Auto Obsessed performed a New Vehicle Prep detail to this 2015 Audi R8 V10. The exterior underwent a full decontamination wash including iron and tar removal. Wheel wells, door jambs, exhaust tips, wheels and engine bay were detailed. XPEL Stealth paint protection film was applied to the front impact areas, rocker panels, and side blades of the Sepang Blue Matte Pearl paintwork. The interior was detailed and the leather was cleaned and conditioned with Swissvax. The exterior including paint protection film finished in Swissvax Opaque and the carbon fiber panels were finished in Swissvax Shield PTFE.

    Just to clarify, this car was ordered from factory with matte blue paint, we have added Xpel Stealth to provide protection to the paint while keeping the matte appearance. To add added protection to the matte paint and Xpel Stealth we have coated these areas with Swissvax Opaque wax.

    This in not a glossy car with Xpel Stealth film on it, this is a factory matte car with some of the finest products available to protect and enhance the matte appearance.

    Car looks beautiful, but kind of an interesting choice to purchase a brand new '15 with the redesigned '16's arriving in Canada.
