I have a bottle of Green star but I have been relying on BH foam for now. I have no intention of ever doing purely touchless washing but this looks very impressive.

I now have 4l of avalanche sat around doing nothing!

I might still use it when the car is only lightly soiled but I can't get out to was it as often as I'd like anymore so if it's gross like mine was GS I'd the way forward

Never heard of clean and shiny before but that's who had it in stock. There was a DW discount and they even sent me some Maoam in the package Hahas!

Is the Greenstar an actual detergent as such, I know it does an apparently miraculous job but does it leave the car clean enough to hand wash afterwards?

Are you guys applying it to wet or dry cars?

It's an APC so yes, it cleans. No pre-wash will replace a decent full hand-wash.

It leaves the car cleaner than snowfoam so yes easily hand-washable afterwards. You won't get a fully touchess wash unless you use it in real high concentration, but a touches wash isn't what I want. I just want less crud left on the car which can cause swirls or scratches when hand washing as it's a black car so minor marks show up like a f*#$@*#$#*@#$*$*#*@.

I applied it to a dry car to give it a fairer test against snow foam I have tried in the past.

In the other GS thread one of the guys foamed his unprotected (!) fast Audi (RS4?) with Surfex, hut then rinsed it off with a beast of a Nilfisk hot water pressure washer, so probably not directly comparable to "ordinary" use.

That said from what I've read, as APCs Green Star and Surfex are fairly comparable, so I would expect Surfex to behave similarly if used in this way.

Thanks buddy, it blown me away too when it was recommended
