    Cheers Nath ;)

    I use Elite Car Care snow foam. The misses got me the lance and 5l from them for Christmas.
    It is good. Gets really thick and does lift dirt.
    However soon as the water starts to self dry it still leaves patches of dirt which haven't been lifted.
    Going to try magifoam next I think.
