    For those of you who don't know, an Enhancement Detail includes a single-stage machine polish. This involves the removal of light surface defects (oxidisation/swirls/holograms) adding gloss and depth to the vehicle’s final finish.

    To ensure 100% coverage, a second layer of Nano sealant was after 6 hours curing time.

    may I suggest, if you are intending to advertise your services on forum it is best to get in touch with one of the staff first so they can advise the best way forward.

    I just don't see the point of all this on a 2007 Civic

    Looking at the photos I don't think the results warrant the effort. There is still all crap around the filler cap seal, the exhaust tail pipe backing plates and the rear skirt grill for a start.

    Most reliable cars I've ever owned. I had to spend far more on my Hondas.

    Jaguar x type/ford mondeo diesel common issues:
    Noisy crank pulley
    Parking sensor control unit

    Honda accord diesel common issues:
    Clutch flywheel premature wear
    ABS pump
    Exhaust manifold
    Timing chain
    High pressure fuel pump
    Tailgate control unit
    Satnav discs drive

    My Jaguar is better speced and more reliable than the Honda. I made the right choice.

    No one questioned your current selection over a Honda car I don't think so as I can't see it?. Secondly you have never owned a diesel Accord so how does the " I had to spend far more on my Hondas." come in to the above? LOL :professor:
