Dealership attacks a brand new 2014 Audi S4!

Got your attention ; ). Here we have a brand new 2014 Audi S4 that came to us for new car prep which turned into a full paint correction, Opti Coat, and Xpel Ultimate Installation.

What we thought would be an easy routine job turned into much more. The dealer induced a lot of linear scratches from doing the customer a favor and removing snow off the car at deliver, unfortunately (I see this a lot) the dealer delivered the car at night....... Please join us for another dealer fix write up.

I'll let the photos do the talking now.
