I've just used gunk on mine from halfords, worked great.

Warm car up for 10 mins. Apply product. Agitate. Leave for 5 mins. Rinse with hose. Start car and leave to run for 10 mins while you mop up the puddles of water with paper towels.

Would start with a toothbrush and some 99p household detergent to get all the crusty bits and stubborn oil and grease off then as Daz says give it the maguiers to finish it off.

Halfrauds GUNK to get the think off, then baby wipes 3 packs for £2 from ASDA, works a treat

Compressed air is a good start, then get cracking with tooth brushes, nail brushes, cilit bang, degreaser ....

I used Gunk engine degreaser from Halfords on mine, you just spray it on all over, let it soak then spray with a pressure washer. Some people daren't use one of those because they think the water will damage the ir electrics but if you leave the engine running then it should just all steam off.
