My brother bought this Mk5 Volkswagen Jetta TDI from me when I used to work in sales for Young Volkswagen (in Easton, PA). At the time he and his wife were living in Brooklyn, NYC. When he asked me to travel to his house (not in the city anymore) to detail the Jetta, I knew I was going to have my work cut out for me. Surprisingly, there were not as many scratches and scuffs as I had expected. There was, however, a weird film that had settled on the hood, roof, and trunk. The paint felt like 2,000 grit sandpaper. A thorough clay bar took care of the film and a compound and polish brought the Platinum Grey Metallic back to life. Waxed with a hydrophobic wax and sealed with Opti-Seal for 7-9 months of protection.
