I've now also ordered from the Amazon link above  

From all the looking around and reading hundreds of reviews and then comparing price versus accessories etc, this C120 will do nicely for me.

This now leads to yet more questions.............

I have always used Meguiars Gold Class Shampoo. What products are ph neutral and work well with Snowfoam Lances that folk have used?

Amazon as well, cheaper. Just ordered this, Im assuming I don't need to but a separate foam lance as it seems to be part of the kit?

All this cleaning stuff is new to me but just thought it would be better for winter time to use this than a bucket etc.

The snow foam connection with that deal is the same as i got with my nilfisk, pish.  Go with the lance that crouchie has put up.

Right I got mine tonight but theres no hose connection. I have a quick connect on the garden hose but its too big. Do they need a specific quick connection?

Also is there supposed to be something that fits to the tap outlet?  Its shown in the photos but I don't have one either.

My C120 arrived Friday.

Assembled and ready to go and tried it out on my folks patio, pretty damn good. struggled with some heavy pitting on the slabs but holding the lance close to the tiles it gets the grime off. So good in fact that my old man is going to get an E130 (Pressure Washer).

Mine came with a black hose attachment to connect the hose to the washer and fits our hoselock just fine. There wasn't any tap outlet connector as I guess it's down to the consumer to have one already?

The best thing about it is that it is in the fastest colour

That seems a bit strange. Mine is a snugg fit. You have to push it on with a bit of elbow grease but it comes off ok when you need it to.

Seems unlikely, but are there different sizes of hoselock connectors?

If not, I would firstly take the Nilfisk part down to local gardening store and try it with other connectors. If it still doesn't work, I would send the part back to Nilfisk asking why it doesn't fit.

I just picked up for my birthday a Nilfisk C130 with an Autobrite snow foam lance; with their magifoam it works fantastically!
