Was the case in the past but not anymore. There are a few quality foams on the market now, autofoam is still excellent though.

I have a few on the go because I like to experiment with different products. I haven't found anything to beat Bilt Hamber Auto Foam. There are other great products too though.

ODK Arctic is excellent. The cleaning power is top notch and this is matched by its versatility. It works just as well through a pump sprayer as a regular prewash. Lovely minty smell in use too and rinses away easily from the drive.

Autoglym's Polar Blast is another great product from them. It works really well. The only drawback of this product for me is that it sticks around on the drive for ages afterwards, unless you chase off the remaining suds with your pressure washer. A minor drawback really though.

I have still got at least 4 litres of Waxaddict's mild but effective snow foam. It smells good and cleans well. It's gentle on LSPs too.

Gtechniq's is a great product for cleaning safely.

I have heard lots of good thiongs about Gyeon's too.

I tired one panel with it on and one without and there was no difference

I have got a sample of the Blizzard Force(more alkiline like Bilt Hamber autofaom) so will see if this is any better

Nothing for me yet has come close to BH

I really didn't get on with Avalanche at all. It left white marks on the paint - checked with a few guys on here and may have been a dodgy bottle as was cloudy as well, but still wouldn't buy again.

For cleaning purposes I would go BH Autofoam. I have also been given a bottle or ProKleen which I have been using on the wheels and works great also smells lovely. Also works great as a 2BM shampoo.

I also think you would need to go a long way to beat Megs Hyper Wash .
