    Running low on my current foam so will be looking to get some more soon.

    Appreciate its personal preference but what are people using at the moment.

    Is Bilt Hamber still popular?

    Cheers.

    I’m using Autofinesse Avalanche which I’ve found to be really good. I’ve also got a tub of Autobrite’s snow foam but I’ve yet to try it out.

    I still use Bilt Hamber and Iíll be buying the same again when this bottle runs out.
    As Iíve said before itís not as thick as most foams Iíve used but it definitely shifts more crud off the car.

    Cheers Pete. Good to know you still rate. By the way my roof came up well. One stage was like re-painting which has bought it back to black well but wonít need to do that regularly.

    Second thumbs up for Auto Finesse Avalance. Works well for me, decent price, not an overpowering chemical smell like some. Will be following this as usual to see what others recommend, for when I'm finished my 5L.

    Autofinesse Avalanche for me too. Although i am hearing some good things about a local independent ayrshire company Autoperfekt producing detailing stuff. https://www.autoperfekt.co.uk/produc...c-prewash-foam

    Went with Bilt Hamber in the end although not sure calling it snow foam is correct. I am applying through a sprayer rather than a foam lance and very impressed so far.
