A 2011 Porsche GT3 with 7,700 miles doesn't sound like it needs much. Upon our initial assessment, it needed paint correction. Speaking with the client when he brought it in for its makeover, he decided he wanted the car not only completely transformed after we corrected it; he wanted it protected and to have a reflection like no one's ever seen on white paint before.
First we washed, clayed, and prepped the surface prior to compounding and polishing the paint. We masked off all trim and rubber with low-tack painters' tape to ensure no damage was done to these delicate areas. We then proceeded to compound and polish the paint with our Deluxe Stage II package, yielding around 90+% perfection on this car.
We also applied our 6+ month permanent tire shine (coating) that keeps tires looking clean and shiny no matter what you drive through. After you wash the vehicle, the tires are still as if it just left our shop. What's the best part besides your tires always looking great? NO SLING!

The wheels were coated as well. This drastically cuts down on brake dust and dirt that adheres to wheels, especially when a car like Porsche has soft brake pads and dust very quickly. This not only keeps wheels cleaner, longer and protects them from corrosion; it makes clean-up as easy as rinsing your wheels off with water.
Finally, our 3-5 year glass coating by Ceramic Pro was applied to all painted surfaces. This adds extreme slickness, as well as a deep reflective shine to the paint. Aside from the cosmetic benefits; this coating has 100% UV protection, makes the surface extremely hydrophobic and adds scratch resistant properties. Bugs, tar, mud, gum, and sap can be wiped off with ease if they latch on the surface. For more on coatings, visit our coating education page: http://scottsdalecardetailing.com/glass-crystal-coatings/
We finished up this gorgeous GT3 with our express interior just to spruce up the inside a bit.
The client literally came to pick his car up and said, "wow, my car doesn't even look real anymore". He could not believe his white Porsche could have a shine and reflection better than most people's dark colored cars.
