Will be doing a small test and will be posting the results up on here/facebook

Personally I'd stick with auto-foam for the time being, I haven't found anything quite as potent (when used at the correct dilutions).
Brian, AutoGlanz Spritzer is better IMO...

Have you tried it? I know it's more than double the price but cleaning power is top of all the foams I have tried.

Here is a link, I know BH AutoFoam has not been tested yet. Well last time I checked it wasn't but he tests all the foams on a white car without touching it. Just foam and pressure wash off!

Some do absolutely nothing!

See what you all think.

Well Rob, that was interesting. Pleased to see Avalanche did well there and I use far less than that easily but on a far less dirty car But it also shows, there is not much difference anyway between the more decent offerings.

Watched these videos rob and it does look impressive but there is an issue. On each video what's the car wearing lsp wise and how long has it been since last applied? Is the car bare? Your going to get better results on a protected car to one that's not, he doesn't mention this so we simply don't know. I always make sure my tests are carried out on a car that's been recently protected by a wax or sealant. Guess it is something I should have mentioned in my review in fact so I actually made the same mistake he does...

For any comparison reviews like these I will do them at the same time on the same car, it is the only way to ensure the results are fair when comparing.

That is a fair point Brian.

Don't get me wrong for the price BH AutoFoam is very good but for me the cling time and cleaning power of Spritzer is better.

The foam is also very even just like BH. I hate the foams that go like shaving foam and fall off in lumps!

I tried AF Avalanche and fault is was average and the same with Wowo's Awesome Foam.

I will try the CC Ultimus soon as the Satsuma the older version was very good. If this is better we could be onto a winner although it's a little expensive!

Spritzer is the best I've used to,however it's a lot more expensive than autofoam,so I won't be buying anymore of that.

Worst foam I've used it wowos awesome foam. Certainly wasn't awesome for me

I will need to grab a 1L of Spritzer in future and give that a run out against auto-foam bud. Looks to be getting some good reports.
