    What do you guys use to clean under the bonnet? I always thought you use a jet wash and blast it all but that cant be healthy can it?

    Autoglym Engine Degreaser (applied with a brush), hose off, then spray with Autoglym Vinyl & Rubber Care whilst wet. Simple and looks the business afterwards.

    I won one of these kits (motorbike featured in a magazine) and have found the 'bike spray' to be amazing for all things blastic plastic/rubber! (apart from tyres of course)
