And also, wassaname of that stuff you can apply to the bodywork over the winter? There was a thread recently but don't know what to search for. There was a mainstream product mentioned and then a slightly more obscure but better one used on planes that everyone raved about?

Jetwashers are fine so long as you use a bit of common sense with regard to wheel bearings, head bearings, graphics etc...
