2013 Porsche Boxster S detailed + Opticoat the wheels

The 2013 Porsche Boxster S
As the car arrived:


Dirty Door Jambs:



Dirty Wheel Barells:



Dirty Exhaust tips:


Once the car was throughly inspected, I knew exactly what I needed to do to give this beauty to make it "POP"

The car was rinsed
Clayed with a lube
Paint cleaned with a quick detailer
Polymer sealant
Wax applied by hand
LSP

A through cleaning of the wheels
dress the tires
Opti-Coat 2.0 the wheels

Clean the door jambs/windows/mirrors/inside of the hood/trunk
Get the car ready for some pix and then delivery:

Here is what it looked like when it was done:












I was very pleased how the car turned out. With the protection on the car, the owner can now enjoy the car without having any worries. :-)

Porsche doesn't paint the barrel of the wheel black, just the face? Interesting.

Yeah, they only paint the face. I was surprised as well, especially with the surcharge they have for the painted wheels.

Sort of sucks as if you were to get the car and then powder coat it somewhere for 1/3 the cost - they would claim the warranty is voided on the wheels as the right temperature to bake them wasn't used bla bla bla. The wheels look great but they should have just covered the inside without any additional charges. Just my dos centos.

Huge improvment on looks compared to the previous model
My only issue is that the Audi TTrs is a quicker car for less money and looks as good imo of course
