Do not want to add mote in your cup , but you are probably using different dilutions ratios because you are using BH with lance, it will probably be 1:20 (depending on your PW + lance), you had 1:10 with Koch, test BH in a spray bottle 1:10.

No worries mate but yes know what you're saying. Much more diluted through the lance. VP was supposed to be a brilliant pre wash but at 1:6 that ain't the case either

Make a test with the same dilution ratios vs BH. and if it turns out that Koch is better again, I buy 10l!

I did a similar test today involving VP snow foam and VP citrus pre-wash. They both surprised me at how poor their results were. Going to purchase green star and see for myself!

Nice car by the way and thank you for highlighting green star!

I wonder how greenstar differs from every other APC on the market. I'm not saying it didn't do a great job but i can't see it being any safer on your paintwork than using a flash or Jeyes APC diluted down, which is ideal for stripping back lsp's ready for a fresh coat.

It says it's highly alkaline. It did a great job of cleaning but will it degrade your lsp

I've started using this too. I've used it diluted 1:15 and it takes 90% of the dirt off my white paintwork with ease. I use it through a chemical sprayer and it's a perfect combination. LSP is still beading perfectly (Fireball). Even better is that it costs £5 for a litre which makes it great value for money.
