    I had the same problem and I think it is widely recognised that AG shampoo does not lather much. If you are looking for a truly low friction and good suds type of wash then check out the Chemical Guys and Meguiars products in these links. I believe the Poorboys Super Slick and Suds ( http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acatalog/wash.html) is also a top one here too.

    AG just sucks in the wash arena IMO.

    Hope this helps.

    I use Zymol shampoo from Halfords and at 5.99 a throw its a bargain. The shampoo lathers great with plenty of suds.

    Its not supposed to foam up - thats the point - 1 capful per bucket is adequate

    I changed to meguiars 2 years ago and havent gone back - much better product imho
