Vauxhall Insignia VXR Enhancement

Here is one from just before the New Year. The vehicle in question was a Vauxhall VXR from a returning client of mine who had a Black CL55 for those of you that remember.

The VXR was in for a 1-step enhancement detail to remove the oxidisation and marring experienced within the paintwork – whilst reducing the heavier marks significantly to improve the finish exponentially!

Not 100% perfect but a vast improvement from a 1-step machine enhancement on a vehicle with 80,000 miles on the clock, and looking a lot brighter throughout. The paintwork was then protected with Nano Seal by Autobrite Direct – a hard wearing nanotechnology protection solution, 1+ years protection upon 2 applications. All the other exterior surfaces were treated and protected accordingly.

The Results

A real pleasure bringing this gorgeous Insignia VXR back to life… thank you for looking and reading as always!
