    Hi guys
    I was using a mates pressure washer to wash my Metallic silver 3 series coupe. He had a generic B and Q one, it said JBL on it though. I went down to Halfords and picked up a foam lance, i already bought some snow foam off ebay. Gave it a go, and it was really poor. Did not foam up at all or cling to the car.

    The lance was £5.00 from halfords, and the snow foam was valet pro i think from ebay.

    Im about to buy a karcher pressure washer from tesco as there half price at the moment. But was wondering what foam lance i need, or a different pressure washer etc? Also what snow foam do you recommend.

    thanks

    ive got a karcher mate..elite snow foam is very good..as for a lance..ther is a i connection with the litre bottle thats best..check out either elite car car or ultimate finish..they sell these for £52..expensive but worth it..also if the foam was not too clingy possibly you diluted it too much..or your car is superbly waxe and protected..hence the foam struggles too cling too it
