Like Auto Finesse Lather, provided lots of lather and I found that I ended up using less wash solution compared with rivals. I do go through more than I probably should generally, tending to fill/top-up two wash buckets per wash alongside a rinse bucket and another for the wheels. But I often leave my car for 2-3 months between contact washes.

Megs NXT wash is another favourite of mine, really good suds on this one. Hard to measure out as it's really thick. I got two 2L bottles on Amazon for Ł6 each. Basically, was on Amazon and one trader had put low product prices alongside extortionately high postage prices, but when I bulked up on just everything it cost me next to nothing.

Used to really like BH Auto Wash, but don't seem to get on with it as well, I used 15-20 ml in my 20L bucket last week and was struggling to get a decent lather. Gave it a good few bursts in my wash bucket too with the PW lance. My water is 'slightly hard', but that shouldn't make too much of a difference.

AG Bodywork Shampoo & Conditioner is another one that I've used, but I do need a lot to get any level of suds from it, but I don't believe that is designed to sud up that much. Smells nice this one, in the past I have tended to use this for maintenance washes if I am not intending on doing anything else, as it does leave a little something behind. I don't believe that it has a lot of cleaning strength though, I used it in a bucket for my house glass windows and it took a lot of effort to clean anything up.

As far as i am aware G3 body prep is just a pure shampoo as it strips away any old waxes,polish residue,glaze,sealant so it does not leave any wax behind which the op wants

My favourite is ODK’s Sublime, followed very closely by Adams wash and wax.
Or as mentioned above Simoniz wash and wax from Costco for a budget option.

Adams Wash & Wax is very good! Loads of suds and good transfer to the panel! Gyeon Bathe+ has npne of the above but I think adds slightly more protection.

Adams for me!
