I'm surprised it's even dirty, don't you only have 18K miles on the car? hehe. Nicely done.

If you maintain it weekly all it needs is a wipe down with a moist rag. Looks fresh.

! Ever since I owned the car, I've just wiped down all the components of the bay with a wet cloth, weekly. Today, I used Meguiar's super degreaser on a microfiber towel when the engine was warm, then waited until it was cool to apply Armorall's low gloss spray with a clean microfiber cloth.

What I said above^^. I know alot of you guys's engine bays are fairly greasy, and the Meguiars product helped alot to remove the stains on the cowling and cover.

A clean engine bay says a lot and will get you extra $ whenever you try to flip a car. Hey, it worked for my dad many times!
