I bought a Nilfisk, just a basic one and it has been very good. I heard that vital parts in the Karcher are plastic but metal in the Nilfisk.
Same here - I only wanted to spend £100-£150 on one, but I still wanted something decent, so I went for Nilfisk C120 (now superseded by newer models) purely because the key parts are metal versus the Karcher equivalent.

5 years on and it's still going strong. :)

Found by chance on Reddit. I don't go on Reddit very often either.

There was only the one photo.

Thanks Guzzle, never thought of Reddit.

If I had a gti I’d do this mod. Sounds great.

Golf mk7 / TCR muffler on GTI performance
« Last post by Gitteh on Today at 11:10 »
Hi guys did anyone try a TCR muffler on his gti 7.5? Would be interesting to know if this improves the sound a bit, like the CS muffler does on the gti7.

Here you can see an American who is happy with it. (The car is stage1)

19's from the factory, 11k miles on the clock. Negative camber on the rear is evident. As Talk-torque says, it's supposed to be like that..

I bought a Nilfisk, just a basic one and it has been very good. I heard that vital parts in the Karcher are plastic but metal in the Nilfisk.

That is incorrect for the K4. It has an aluminium water cooled pump, whereas the the K2 has a plastic air cooled pump.

I’ve had a K4 for nearly 3 years and it hasn’t missed a beat. The supplied lance is fine but the hose is a bit kinky, likes to curl up and is slightly short so I’ve replaced it with a 15m one from QWashers so I can have the K4 in the garage whilst I can walk all the way around the car with the lance. I have also replaced the lance with a quick release short trigger but the supplied lance is just fine.

I have two snow foam lances, one is the same at the one Watts posted a link to and it is very good. The other is from the link below and is exactly the same at the new Autoglym one but without the branding, coming in at £23.99 delivered it’s a real bargain and has a wide neck which is much easier to fill up. Performance wise it’s on a par with the Autobrite lance because they are both solid brass.

Snow foam wise, I was recommended this lance and it has been very good - https://www.autobritedirect.co.uk/products/autobrite-heavy-duty-foam-snow-foam-lance-and-magifoam-500ml/ad-foamlance-magi-500ml-blackdecker
