Have one for a couple of years and it does a good job.
Of course the best method would be put it on a four poster lift and clean the underside, but the Karcher does a decent job.
I use it regular during winter and spring, and my garage always complimenting on how clean it is underneath.
Only it doesn’t reach in to of the wings, you have to do that with a lance.

Thanks for replies. The price of these kits are 50 quid now so I thought I'd just order one. There are some mixed opinions as to how well this works but the way I see it is its got to be better than just leaving the underside and not trying to clean it at all

I thought about one but instead I just jack the car up and give a really good blast with my PW, I think it works just as well. I usually jack my car up to PW and clean deep in to the wheel arches so I blast the whole underneath of the car.
