...wont touch the main problem area i.e. the valves on the 335i though.

Still,might clean up the other gunk that a manual valve clean doesn't touch?

Looked really good and you can't argue with the evidence. Couldn't help wondering if the special fuels like V Power would stop that happening in the first place though £70 after 10 years for the treatment would be less than the extra cost of V Power over that time ?

One garage close to London charges 70+ vat for cars with engine size upto 2000cc and 95+ vat for over that.

Going to get my Supra done in a few days.
