I know almost nothing about foam cannons other than I think I want one.

Do you think this shampoo would be good for that use? What makes for a good shampoo for a foam cannon?
This is what I use undiluted in the foam cannon.

Chemical Guys CWS_1011 Maxi-Suds II Foaming Car Wash Soap (For Foam Cannons, Foam Guns or Bucket Washes) For Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, RVs & More, 128 oz (1 Gallon), Strawberry Scent https://a.co/d/2WmNEgJ

What about for soap use? Didn't @Maiden69 say the MTM uses like half the soap?

It seems like it might use less soap? I only have two washes (one with the new pressure washer), so I haven't been monitoring soap use too much.

However, that gallon of soap is $0.17/oz. Usually, you put 2oz in the foam cannon. So even if the MTM does use half the amount of soap, it would take forever to make up the difference from the cheap cannon to MTM cannon.

@Acadia18 what short gun are you using?

Well, i dont get that luxurious looking blanket of foam but this does honest work. I pre-rinse prior to foaming too so that makes a small effect on what sticks as well.

Honestly im surprised how well it sticks at all since the car is ceramic coated so well lol

I have been looking for something to clean the tires so the P&S Undressed sounds like a good bet.

Have you or anyone else used their shampoo? I'm just about out of shampoo and thinking about this to make the shipping costs more worthwhile.

Also lookng to purchase the MTM cannon soon so I am wondering if this shampoo would work well with it.
I haven't, Undressed should arrived today, if it is there when I get home I'll probably wash my summer tires and coat them so I can install tomorrow. I've been procrastinating and the wife has almost every darn weekend booked up... full detail, drop springs install, this coming weekend I have to make a small deck for her barber studio as she wants to quit accounting to open her own business... hopefully I will get fathers weekend for me.

9.2" screen and what looks to be a hacked MIB2 to MIB2.5 unit.

I use Android Auto 100% of the time, so I don't care about it having euro maps loaded (I do have the SD card for US maps, not sure if that would work). All I care about is the regular car functions work fine, and Android Auto works. Getting info from the seller is hard to do due to language barrier, all I was really able to get from them is that the unit is unlocked, and open for coding.

Been talking to @Cuzoe about it, and said setting it up should be easy easy (and tedious) as copying over long coding/matching adaptions and whatnot. Spoke to the seller, and they're willing to upgrade it to UPS shipping vs. AliExpress Shit Shipping for free. So $620 $650 (after including the trim) after tax.

Do I go for it?

That's the Chinese market Delphi unit that can (from what is claimed by the sellers) support the 9.2" display rather than the Harman MHI2 unit that is commonly used with the 9.2" display for EU and NAR (e-Golf), right? I came across those Delphi units during my research into the 9.2" retrofit... but it seems the Harman units are commonly recommend and used for the retrofits so there is not a lot of information about the Chinese market Delphi units.

Curious to see how it turns out!
