Is that shampoo supposed to give me loads of foam over the car or not...

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 ( 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.


trying to growl less these days
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
