The Gilmour gun only works well if you have high water pressure. With low pressure, you'd be better off keeping your cash and just throwing a bucket of soapy water on the car. Don't actually throw the bucket onto the car, though. LOL.
Is this how you would do the first step of the shampoo stage without a foam lance?

They work well as a quick solution but there are better products out there.

Yeah. The point of foaming is to remove any loose dirt and grime before you even touch the paint with your wash mit.

Yezzir! Not much to detail in the trunk unless you get real anal.

personally not a fan of either.... I think they're too greasy of a product, I like my interior with a clean satin or matte look, not super shiny (That way it doesn't reflect so much on the windshield). Plus ArmourAll doesn't clean very well and just uses a lot of oils again to make things shiny... like Schumacher said, there are better products out there.

not to my knowledge.... at least for dash no, even the Meguiar's ones are over saturated in my opinion. If you like the high gloss dash finish then by all means use them, they all basically perform the same. If you don't mind carrying a small bottle with a microfiber towel, then I would suggest the Migliore trim protectant as the bottle is a nice size to fit in your glove box and it leaves the dash looking clean and matte, or the Pinnacle Vinyl and Rubber Protectant for a more satin finish. If you're consious about the cost of these things, Meguiar's Hyper Dressing is the way to go. At $36.99 a gallon, dilute it at a 4:1 ratio and you got enough cleaning solution for over a year if you clean once a weak.

and really, don't think I'm shooting your idea down here.... find what works for you and stick with it!

Yeah, I've never liked a high-gloss interior. Poorboys Natural Look Dressing is my choice when it comes to the interior. Leaves a great finish and smells sexy. Well, that's what the chicks tell me! If you want a glossy finish, 303 Aerospace Protectant is what you need.

poorboys is a great choice as well, the only thing I have against the 303 aerospace is that it's not very environment or kid safe.
