    Britain a nation of dirty car owners

    Yo Waynne, try doing the full clean by hand, not with a power jet washer, ( under bonnet only), you'll see more of any problems,ie,clips not secure, belts need ajusting,leeks,etc AND you'll polish the whole bay, if your anything like me...ex Marranelo ( ferrari uk) head valet.
