Best Soap for Black Cars.. - 06-02-2013, 05:25 PM

As we all know there's a large variety of car wash shampoos, but I'd like to get some opinions on liquid shampoos for specific car colors... Does anyone recommend a shampoo for a specific car color, which will ultimately enhance the final look? ... All comments are appreciated!

Agree with Ronkh and I'd also like to add Optimum Car Wash and Meg's Hyper Wash.

Do you find Optimum not slick enough? Just curious why you would put ONR in your mix.

1Z Gloss is pretty incredible on my black BMW. It does leave a lot of gloss. But usually, color doesn't really matter to me when picking a shampoo. If it leaves streaks on any color its garbage. I have tried over 20 shampoos that AG sells. All of them are pretty good, especially the ones mentioned above.

Dodo Basics of Bling coming Tuesday.

Has anyone tried Finish Kare Shampoo?

I own two black cars. I only use a soap that can be rinsed after the entire car has been washed. One rinse usually eliminates the possibility of water spots, etc.

Auto Finesse Lather
Adams

I always wash my cars in the garage or in the shade after the body panels have cooled.

Any high quality soap should work.


Ultima soap is very good and makes the water lay flat so it helps to reduce water spotting.


I also like, Hyperwash, DG901, DDJ B2BM, CG CW&G, 1Z Perlz, ONR, ONRWW.

I like DG901 and Pinnacle Bodywork Shampoo for both of my black vehicles. I like to try new ones when one runs out. Some of the CG washes seem to get good reviews. I am also looking foward to AF Lather. Like others have said I sometimes put a few drops of ONR in the buckets. I can't really tell if it makes a difference or not, but I figure it can't hurt either.

I assume DG 902 and 903 are the same as 901 just larger sizes? 902 is gallon and 903 is 64 oz.
