Porsche Taycan 4s Paint Correction

Despite its relatively low mileage of 400 since delivery, daily use can swiftly lead to unsightly imperfections on any vehicle, even this Porsche Taycan 4S. The goal for the day was to refine the paintwork and address minor defects. However, upon closer inspection, specific areas demanded more significant attention than anticipated. Once these imperfections were addressed, the paint was prepared meticulously and primed for the application of a protective coating.

To begin, Matt set about removing any contamination that managed to build up on the bodywork within the first 400 miles of ownership. Starting with a layer of Citrus Pre wash and a thick blanket of foam, applied through an mjjc v3 snow foam lanceGtechniq Gwash shampoo was used during the contact wash as it produces a high foam content which breaks the bond between the dirt film and the vehicles paintwork. The shampoo lubricates dirt particles, minimising surface abrasion, maximising gloss retention. 

Prior to the drying and polishing process, the car received a thorough spray of Gtechniq W7 Iron & Fallout remover as an extra precaution against any stubborn deposits still clinging to the paint. Leaving any form of contamination on the paint surface during the machine polishing stage could potentially exacerbate imperfections rather than rectify them.

Transitioning to the drying phase, we carefully maneuverer the car into the bay and introduced the BLO AIR-GT for a touchless drying experience. This powerful tool efficiently eliminates water in those tricky, hard-to-reach spots such as wheel nuts and wing mirror folds - areas where a conventional towel might not easily reach.

After the paint dried, it was finally time for a thorough assessment. With the surface clean and under optimal lighting, it became evident that there were two primary areas of concern on the vehicle. These areas might lead to adjustments in the choice of pad and polish combination and could even need sanding. 

During the polishing process, we employed a Rupes Bigfoot machine polisher paired with a Rupes Yellow Wool pad to tackle the deeper marks visible on the surface. We utilized the 3D Car Care ONE Compound & Polish for this phase. Following that, we switched to a Rupes yellow foam pad to ensure a stunning, high-gloss finish.

Next in our detailing process, Infinity Wax panel prep spray is used to free the paint of any polish residue or oils. Essential to ensure a through bond of the ceramic and the vehicles paintwork.

As for our final protection, we opted for Gtechniq Crystal Serum topped with their latest innovation, Exo v5, using a Gtechniq microfiber applicator pad. This step ensures long-lasting preservation of the stunning finish we achieved earlier.


In the meticulous journey of detailing this Porsche Taycan 4S, every step unveiled a world of care and precision. From the initial assessment uncovering unexpected imperfections to the delicate polishing process that revived the paint's brilliance, each stage was a testament to the pursuit of perfection.

The dedication to ensuring a flawlessly refined finish led us through an intricate dance of tools and products, from the Rupes Bigfoot machine polisher to the Gtechniq protective coatings. Every decision made was a deliberate stride towards preserving and enhancing the car's pristine allure.

Through the lens of attention to detail, even in a vehicle with minimal mileage, we witnessed how daily use can leave its mark. The careful removal of imperfections and the application of protective coatings served as a shield against the wear and tear of everyday adventures.

Ultimately, this detailing journey wasn't just about restoring a car's lustre, it was a testament to the artistry and passion behind preserving automotive beauty. It's a celebration of craftsmanship, where every swirl, every application, and every protective layer tell a story of dedication to the pursuit of automotive excellence
