BMW makes an engine cleaner that is great !!!! It will not attack the
electrical and rubber parts. And they also have an engine clear coat to
protect and shine after the cleaning. BUT it requires several steps. First
the engine has to be dead cold, so partk your car overnight near a car wash
with a scrubber system for the water (protect the bay and streams), spray
on the cleaner and wait 5 minutes and wash, now pull the car out again and
let it air dry for the day. When dry, apply the lack. I know it is a pain
but it really is worth the effort. BMW part nunbers:
