PostSubject: The Best Cleaning Guide ever?   16th December 2009, 11:13

I don't tend to go on detailing world as there is a lot of information and I really just want my car to go fast and put a grin on my face, and it doesn't NEED to be clean for this!

Having said that, MINI torque has this thread which has all the info you will ever need about cleaning! Thought I should pass if on for you non-MT people!

I might have to brave the cold weather at the Weekend and give it a clean - all the road grime and salt especially in this snowy weather.
