Italian cars always have the flair, style and presence to turn heads even when standing still. Although one driving down the road with a hearty V8 engine is guaranteed to turn emotions too (well, for us car nuts at least). Luckily enough, the naturally aspirated V8 engines can still be found in Maserati's GranTurismo until environmental legislation will likely see the introduction of smaller engines with some turbocharges bolted to it. So for the time being, Maserati are havi
Back in November 2016 our client of ours opted to have their black Porsche 991 undergo an Enhancement Detail along with Gyeon Quartz Q2MOHS ceramic coating (click here to view the previous feature). After a few months had passed the client had replaced said Porsche for a brand new 911 GTS and was expecting delivery soon, so we received a phonecall to install the Gyeon Quartz protection upon his latest investment. Since the previous job, we had become a Gyeon Quartz Certified
The Porsche 911 is still one of the most desired sports vehicles available even after its launch in 1963, although the modern production models are far more refined and offer a lot more creature comforts that their predecessors. That aside, the fan club of the Porsche 911 has always continued to grow with each chassis model that is released from the original 901 models to the current 991 series (which is the chassis featured here). Of course the latest models are now in use o
We're no stranger to the BMW 1 Series hatchback, we've had enough of them through our studio door that's for sure. Although, the BMW in question today is the top dog, the head honcho, the daddy - the new M140i. Replacing the earlier M135i with a new upgraded engine with an additional 14bhp from the six-cylinder engine which now extenuates the power output to 335bhp - which in a hatchback is certainly not to be taken lightly. As we've featured a few M135i models previously, we
In 1963, Germany's automotive industry was saw the birth of a vehicle that would go on to be one of the most iconic and desired sports vehicles ever produced. Even today, fifty four years after the first generation was launched still encapsulates those who experience the German precision and engineering for themselves. We of course are talking about Porsche's iconic 911. The rear mounted straight six engine, two-plus-two design along with its independent suspension created a
The BMW M4 has recently taken over the legendary M3's place as BMW's two-door performance coupe, moving the ever-loved M3 to the four-door chassis. The M4 took no hesitation to take the M3's place in the M division as go-to M-car. The 'standard' M4 was never a shy performer with 425bhp and 410ft/lbs torque from its 3-Litre straight six twin turbocharged engine. BMW then unveiled a concept of the GTS at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2015 before the productio
Great Britain has designed, developed and produced some of the most iconic, well remembered and beautiful vehicles that have ever driven on roads across the globe. Jaguar had the beautiful E-Type, Aston Martin had the glorious DB5 and of course, there was the classic Mini - an unlikely candidate to be nominated the second most influential car of the 20th century when you compare the compare the luxury, shapes and performance of the former mentioned vehicles. With its transver
BMW are always innovating new ways to be one of the dominant manufactures of the German automotive market. Recently the brand has launched a few newer models amongst the re-naming of the current range - turning the 1 series coupe into its own model aptly named the 2 series. Leaving the 1 series to remain with the hatchback body type. The X series has also seen its recent additions, with the X5 being the most commonly known from a few years previous. The Range of X cars, like
The British car manufacturer Jaguar has always been considered to be one of the best luxury cars you can buy. With great specifications, beautiful styling and absolutely dripping in leather, alcantara and wooden paneling on the interiors made Jaguar the pinnacle of British automotive luxury. With heritage of some of the most beautiful vehicles still to grace the roads today, such as the Jaguar E-Type and more recent F-Type, Jaguar's XJ was always going to set the bar for auto
Classic cars are always the type of vehicle to attract a crowd, fetch reasonable re-sale value and bring together strangers and car enthusiasts not only on a local scale, but worldwide. Increasing valuations of various classic vehicles are always fluctuating but the passion that is adopted with the heritage is always priceless to the people who restore and maintain their vehicles.

The market place for a German performance saloon is one that is loved around the world. The majority of them being rear wheel drive, front engine with big power and often dripping with the perfect mixture of luxury and pedigree with upgraded interior and exterior trim. The BMW 'M Division' seem to lead the way for these types of vehicles with their beloved M3, M5 and the more recent M6 but Audi have always been able to retaliate with their RS models; more particularly the RS4

Manufactures offering lease-purchase contracts and the added comfort of warranties have made purchasing a brand new vehicle more tempting than ever, 2016 is no different. March will see the introduction of the most recent '16 plate' vehicles to our roads but this doesn't come without some words of wisdom to gain the most from the brand new vehicle you are so eagerly awaiting delivery o
The Audi 'S' range has become ever so popular in a market of high performance (and quality built) German cars. Ranging from a little hatch through to full sized 4x4 SUV, its safe to say no one is going to be short on choice - even if home commitments help your decision.

Cold temperatures and wet roads aren't uncommon during a typical British Winter. Even if you're not up-to-date on the latest car care guides, you'll know that these two factors often result in icy roads that need regulating. Big, bright and yellow lorries that fling salt grit over the carriageways to prevent ice building up on the roads but whilst this might not sound like an issue, salt and water is very much an enemy of any vehicle when they are mixed together. Gladly, ther
When you associate quality, luxury and road presense with a car its not uncommon to hear the word 'Bentley'. Sharpe shoulder lines, curved hips and a voice to die for are all things that come together to create a modern, sleek and desirable luxury coupe. The Bentley Continental GT was introduced in 2003 and ever since has been the luxury coupe to set the benchmark amongst other manufactures and even today, the first generation of GT still look as good as the later models.
The world of Detailing has come a long way over the years. New technology, updated products, different paint types & finishes alongside so much more means there is more information to read up on and remember in order to master all these modern changes.

The importance of maintenance and aftercare on any vehicle is far larger than the initial rectification. You could pay the very top
Having a drop-top on those sunny summers days can create a new love for driving. Open skies, wind ruffling through the hair - blissful images right? As we all know, those sunny summer days don't last forever, sometimes that roof needs to be up more than it needs to be down. When you drive a car in the wet, it's obvious that dirt becomes temporarily stuck onto the paint and surrounding areas. Dirty rain water swiped away by the wipers doesn't magically disappear from the winds
This 135i has previosly had work done by myself a few months ago. Previous work removed swirling, bird etchings and more defects in the form of an Enhancement Detail. This time the client returns to get his beloved BMW (alongside his sisters Seat Leon FR) protected ready to fight the less favored time of the year for car lovers. So, onto the detail.. Firstly removing the licence plates from both front and rear of the vehicle, the heavily covered wheels were misted with a fall
