    As i couldn't really think of anything i want for christmas i've decided to get a snow foam lance to help with my growing interest in car cleaning/detailing. I only have a cheap power wash though and i'm not sure the fitment would match any of the lances available. I've seen this one on i4detailing and it fits directly onto the hose pipe. I have good water pressure where i live so do you think this one will do the job ok?

    I bought mine from Mark at Autobrite-Direct in Stoke. Great bit of kit, prompt delivery too. He sorted a deal for members of the FiatForum that I also read.

    For anyone that is interested, Mark would be happy to have a detailing day for forum members, showing members the basics of detailing and providing special offers.... Any takers ?

    Hope I have not broken any rules saying that,

    Mark can be contacted on 01782 744115

    The gilmour gun will give you more suds than foam I think, what PW do you have as some of the fitments may be the same? I know Matt @ i4 d can change the foam lance fitments on most of the popular makes, may be worth a call he's a good guy, just tbh I think you may be slightly dissapointed with the Gilmour.

    The PW is woolworths own but is probably made by someone for them so the fitment maybe the the same as something else

    I was thinking of dabbling with THIS for my Karcher, but at that price, I'm thinking it must be cr*p. What do you think Rob?

    I've not seen one of them before Neal, so hard to comment, agree seems a bit cheap to have quality fittings??

    The one's below I've used for the last couple of years, got both but use the standard one more, the heavy duty one has no plastic fittings or parts.

    If you live in a hard water area then it's advisable to rinse them through once in a while with hot water to stop the injector and wire gauze getting clogged.

    I've got the Gilmour as mentioned by the OP, its ok if you have really really good water pressure.

    But i much prefer the foam lance on the PW for better cleaning power, the Gilmour is ok for adding a sudsy solution while washing.

    As Rob said give Matt @ i4Detailing a bell, top fella and always helpful
