Default Freshly Detailed w/Gtechniq Crystal Serum Coating

My local detail shop (Watershed Auto Care in Simi Valley, CA) applied Gtechniq Crystal Serum and Exo Nano Coating. The SQ5 looks amazing and will stay this way.

For reference, my SQ5 is 8 months old and has 12,600 miles on it.

Quick question on your hitch. Did your hitch installer notch the rear lower bumper panel?

I specifically asked them to cut it out like pictured, however, they messed up and did it according to the outline on the back of that panel. So... it was really wide, and you could see the electrical hook ups. I talked to my service manager and he understood they messed up, so he ordered me a new panel.

I cut out the opening this morning, trying my best to make it as close as possible. It came out pretty good. I still have the other panel, so if I ever tow something that needs the electrical hookups, I'll just use that panel.

Total cost was $500. This included inside/outside detail, color correcting, and coating on the body and wheels. I did get a discount since I've been bringing my vehicles to Watershed for a couple of years now.
