Hi there, have read a few relevant posts on running my VT through automatic carwash with underbody wash with mixed comments so just want to double check it wont kill anything...learnt an expensive lesson with an AU Ford few years back...unaware of coil pack position :hmmm:...I know the VT's coilpack is higher but just wanna confirm it won't cost me $200 for a underbody wash :spew:

I have hosed out under the bonnet of a VX no worries, though it did stall once on the way home (has not happened since then).

A example, i had issue with water splashing onto the horns and they would short out. Sorted it now.

Whilst theoretically should be ok, who knows. Simple splash here and there could cause some grief.
