snow foam ratings?

Evening all. Im new to the DW so forgive me if this has already been discussed. Ibought a black merc c250 a couple of months ago and started to build up my detailing kit again. I clayed the car with bilt hamber polished it with srp and juiced it with ph. I have washed the car at least once a week with bilt hamber auto wash or btbm, always rinsing the car first and using two 20ltr buckets but after just a couple of months I have loads of spider webbing. Im looking for advice on whether this is coz its a black car? Is it the wax coating thats showing webs? Is it worthwhile snowfoaming before washing as it would mean another couple of hundred quid on kit as I dont think my wee pressure washer would take a lance?

AutoBrite do a cost effective snow foam kit with adapters that will work with most pressure washers.

There was a special off on here a while ago which I think is still running - I got a load of kit for about £60

What mitt are you using and how are you drying the car after?
The spider webbing isn't because it's black mate, it just shows up more easily because it's black. So you'd have the same amount on a silver car, you just wouldn't be able to see them as clearly!

On another note this is in the wrong section too
