    Looks awesome, I do like the tourings!

    Whats the secret to successfully pressure washing the engine bay then without cocking anything up??

    I'm desperate to do mine but a little nervous of damaging something

    Hmmm, looking at my engine (2.5 M54 petrol engine) it seems everything is well covered and sealed.. still wary about cleaning it though!!!

    Why dont you apply a degreaser like our jaffa clean, agitate it with a brush and rinse with running water without the pressure - will be safer if your wary about it?
