Time for a new snow foam

Been very impressed with the bilt hamber but its getting to the end of the bottle.
Looking for something with similar cleaning but with a little more work time if theres any? or am I just gonna have to stick to the old faithful?

Whats peoples recommendations?

KKD blizzard for me, not far behind on cleaning ability and has a good cling time!

Standard Blizzard doesn't come close to auto-foam for cleaning power, even the owner of KKD Marc has said this and you wouldn't expect it to given it's more PH balanced than auto-foam. I have spoken to Marc and I have bought a 1L of Blizzard Extreme to try out which he reckons will be a much fairer comparison. 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).

tbh Brian I never let my car get proper minging so that could hinder my comparison I guess, I have used blizzard extreme a couple of winters back when I needed more bite but I've now opted for PM TFR as a first step then follow by blizzard to loosen and left over dirt, personally the amount of product needed from auto foam was kinda what put me off and the whole messing about working out the correct dilution for my water flow too, each to their own I guess and I respect your view and your thorough review of BH AF but horses for courses

was very good for this time of the year Brian it that extra 'bite' really helped shift the crap we get at this time of the year and was enough just on it's own to give a good pre wash, I was tempted to buy another bottle in the BF sales but I've got enough PM TFR and normal blizzard to use up first

This is key for auto-foam. At first I wasn't getting any real cleaning power with it, but then after reading on here I found it better to apply via a pump sprayer at the correct dilution ratio, its now working really well for me.

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.
