    Ive had bad luck with soaps I keep getting ones that sudz up good in the bucket but then when I apply there are no suds and it doesnt last long in the bucket at all. Whats a nice sudsy soap thats mild on the wax and cleans good and with good lube'ness?

    I have heard the Meguires Gold Class is good, have yet to try it.

    I just tried the Poor boys wash over the weekend. Man it works awsome, the Meg's stuff pales in comparison.
    doesn't even deserve to be called pink anymore!

    Thats how I felt about the Gold Class megs stuff over what I was using before. Im sure that poorboys is even better, but I did try the pink megs and it wasnt impressive at all. Sweet.

    Pink megs sucks. I only use Nxt or gold class soap, the water sheens off my car.
