I’ve been using Gyeon recently and it seems really good and much better than the Auto Finesse I was using previously.

I like Gyeon Q2M Foam. I'm currently half way through 5 litres of the stuff but it doesn't have enough cling to do 3 cars at the same time. I struggle to do 2.

Autoglanz spritzer is very good. Not cheap though

+1 just done exactly the same love BH but fancied a change impressed so far

Second this!

My favourites are:

AutoGlanz Spritzer
Angelwax Fast Foam
Carbon Collective Satsuma (Now have Ultimus)

I have 5 litres of AutoFoam and it's good but nothing special IMO.

+1 For Angelwax Fast foam. It's got great dwelling time....they recommend leaving it on for at least ten minutes. Does a great job as well and not expensive.

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

BH Auto foam has been awesome for me - especially after reading how to properly calculate dilutions rates on here a few weeks back.
But - I also really like ODK Arctic and Blizzard from Obsession Wax, both good and tend to use in the summer.
But for out and out cleaning power - Auto Foam is hard to beat.
I also use PW TFR as pre wash in Winter too

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.
