    Do I need help? The only engine I have cleaned before was on my 88 fiat uno turbo at least that had an alloy head.

    I didn't realise that the 'engine' in my 330ci is really just a series of plastic covers, haven't a clue what the real engine looks like. Shame really.

    Anyhow cleaned what there was and man it looks good now

    Used autoquim engine cleaner to degrease and a silicone spray to 'shine' up.

    happy days

    the plastic covers come off (with a 10mm socket i think) - though prob no point cleaning under there as they'll only go back on again!

    got any pics of your hard work!? I wouldn't know what a clean engine looked like

    it does look good I'll have to post some pics - is there a how to somewhere? Have I got to use a host sight or can upload straight to here?

    It's amazing what a little silicone spray can achieve

    By the way work was minimal 40 minutes

    if you go to 'post reply' then way down at the bottom of the page is an option called 'manage attachments'!

    I believe you can upload pics from your hard drive straight onto the forum then

    You can load a few pics here but its better to use a host site such as photobucket.com and then you can load up a lot of photo's

    am looking forward to seeing some asap

    Wow good work! I'm almost inspired to give mine 40minutes of elbow grease this weekend....but will probably get distracted by something less strenuous!
