    I use CG citrus for the majority of the time. I love the shine it leaves and easy drying. It also seems to get most of the bugs and tar without extra chemicals. With that said, I do still spray the front and mirror fronts of the car with CG Bug and Tar was prior to bathing though for extra measure to reduce scratches from wiping the big guts. I can`t speak for Gyeon as I have never used it. Other than the Citrus Wash I also use CG Mr. Pink.

    If you have a coated car, Gyeon Bath+ is nice to add a little `boost` to the coating; doesn`t foam/suds much but slick as heck. Gyeon Bathe (no plus) is nice as well.

    This.
    Also, Citrus Wash and Gloss IMO is a stronger cleaner. I use it when my vehicles are dirtier. Like after a trip to the In-laws who live on a 4mile long dirt road. I use Bath+ as my monthly maintenance wash and Bath as my weekly wash. For the record I have Gyeon Can-Coat on my Vehicles.

    Define "best performance"

    I gather that the criteria for coated vehicles is very different from those wearing conventional LSPs, right?

    IMHO, there really shouldn`t be a difference.

    Need a good cleaner, neutral ph, great lubricity, rinse clear.
    Formerly the "Best Detailer", now just Super Wax Waster Man. Not necessarily tactful, but normally right. It`s good to be da King !!!

    But it sure seems like a lot of people here are using "coating-centric" shampoos that sound like they`d be harsh on conventional LSPs.

    I just don`t know from such stuff as I only coat wheels. Those usually clean up fine with my normal shampoos but if they look *really* dirty I do sometimes use something that`d strip/compromise a regular wax/sealant.

    Re: Car Shampoo

    Thanks @Ronkh for clearing issues, hahaha. Sorry for my bad English.

    This what i mean best performance is, cleaning action and lubricity.

    Since Gyeon said their shampoo gives instant hydrophobic effect and CG gives good cleaning action also can be used as wax stripe. This always tempting me for give it a try to both products.

    Just because I`m little short here, i wanna some thought before choose. 😅

    Re: Car Shampoo

    as far a great soap.. I really like Poorboy`s Super Slick and Suds...cleans well, rinses easily and is very economical

    I have a lot of different soaps but that is the one I will generally reach for

    Re: Car Shampoo

    Bathe plus is for restoring a coatings heading. Wash one pannel and rinse quickly or you will mess up glass and chrome.

    All others are pretty equal. Poorboys world is where I started and I spent a lot of $ on loads of washes and I`m back because it works and he price is right. Really never tried a bad wash. Some smell better some suds better but they are all fine. Never had one strip my lsp badly.

    Don`t over think this and don`t over spend in this product catagory.

    Just my 2 cents

    Re: Car Shampoo

    There really aren`t any bad soaps sold here (I know that doesn`t help). Meg`s Hyper Wash is a good inexpensive soap. On coated cars I like CarPro Reset. Truthfully it is hard to go wrong. I would not choose Gyeon Bathe+ to use on a car I was going to wax just because it leaves SiO2 behind.
