You can get Adams All Purpose cleaner or Chemical Guys OR P21S Autowash
Can get them here:
http://www.chemicalguys.com/Grime_Re..._p/cld_104.htm
or
http://www.detailersdomain.com/index...TS&Category=16

1. All you have to do is spray areas with the cleaner that needs attention. Then scrub that area with a toothbrush or any other kind of brush.
2. Turn on your vehicle
3. Spray lightly with water on the vehicles engine. (if you hear your engine begin to sputter then stop using water and then continue when it sounds normal again) Spray from the top of the engine not from the front.****
4. All dirt and grime should easily come off.
5. Dry off with a air blower (pressure) ---> could use a vacuum blower
6. Then dress the engine for protection

It is safe to do this with BMWs engines because everything is safely covered and sealed. To be safe cover the electric box that is usually at the corner of the engine. Happy cleaning!

P.S. don't forget the inside part of the hood you pop up... Many people forget.

Thanks a lot guys. Those tips are important and useful. Really appreciate your help. I will share some pictures before/after (although it's still a new car w/ 2500kms). Hopefully some differences can still be noticeable.
