Ricky Bobby will become famous soon enough
amazing work on this Phil.

Looks like 5 years of car washes and I'm sure the door jambs were never cleaned before.


Nice interior with a ton of garbage in it too on the before pics lol! no offense but I don't care if I am paying someone to detail my car for me, if you deliver a car with months of grime and garbage in it it just screams that you are a slob.

Miracle work as usual, Phil. As an Audi lover, whoever the owner of that RS4 needs for abusing such a special car.

Totally agree. I couldnít trash a car that bad if I tried. Iím not sure how you can neglect an RS4 like this. Great work Phil, it looks like you worked hard for the money on this one.
