We recently installed Xpel Ultimate Clear Bra on this brand new Audi S8 in Brilliant Black. The name Brilliant Black already implies the obvious – it looks badass! The S8 is Audi’s flagship big body sedan with performance to boot. That’s if you disregard the A8 L which doesn’t have the performance drivetrain the S8 does – a 520-hp Turbocharged V8!
Naturally, the client wanted to protect the Brilliant Black at it’s prime. We took delivery of this car straight from the showroom floor and went right to work. Even though the car is brand new, we always prepare the paint by cleaning it, clay, and detailing it when necessary. Most of the time, the paint already has some minor surface swirling due to the porters at the dealer.
Aware of that, we perform the necessary correction steps to bring the paint back to a 100% shiny finish before sealing it up with Xpel’s Ultimate Clear Bra. This installation was for a full front clear bra, which includes the bumper, mirror caps, full fenders and full hood. Because clear bra seems are easier to notice on darker finishes, the choice for a full clear bra was the ideal one as one lines can be seen.
